With a splash of ‘nostalgia’ and a pinch of the present second, psych-rock outfit J.R.C.G. ‘breathes life’ into ‘Rainbow,’ a ‘sonically dense’ explosion of sensation and colour.
Wayne White famously mentioned that “beauty is embarrassing” and that the uncooked, bare emotion that magnificence conjures invokes an “embarrassing situation to be in.” Beauty, it seems, may also be jarring, unnerving, and – oddly sufficient – onerous to soak up, at first. Such is the wonder that lies inside “Rainbow,” the brand new audio composition from J.R.C.G., the brand new mission from Dreamdecay’s Justin R. Cruz Gallego. With “Rainbow,” J.R.C.G. melds collectively the hazy, half-lidded fuzz of shoegaze with a seemingly discordant beat, creating a wide ranging symphony throughout the first moments of a terrifying hurricane. And, like a devastating maelstrom, the clouds half, sharing a brilliant second. You can really feel the solar. You can see the rainbow.
“In the allure of nostalgia, J.R.C.G. stands alone with his futuristic flavor of art rock,” Louis C.G. of DD Music Group (Dreamdecay), shares with HollywoodLife about his new mission, which is at the moment prepping their debut launch on Castle Face information. “Breathing new life into tradition, ‘Rainbow’ is no exception. Sonically dense with rich blown-out drums and lush free-flowing synthesizer, ‘Rainbow’ pushes the genre to a modern edge while nurturing the spirit of Can, Pharaoh Sanders, and [Brian] Eno/[Robert] Fripp era collaboration.”
“Rainbow” – and J.R.C.G.’s earlier tune, “Holy Hope” – demand a number of listens, and followers will have the ability to spin it in addition to the remainder of the album – Ajo Sunshine – when it arrives on Nov. 19. Ajo (pronounced “Ahh-Ho.”) Sunshine guarantees area recordings taken “from rodeos off Ajo Way, a stretch of highway that leads you westward out of Tucson Arizona directly into the sun, both acoustic instruments and gleaming walls of synthetic noise are framed in dour and dissonant chord shapes, crackling with overdriven drum mics and seasick waves of distortion,” per a press launch. The twelve-track shall be drenched in reverb and experimentation, with shifting views and ever-changing sonic landscapes.
To herald the arrival of this new sonic dawn, J.R.C.G. will carry out a collection of exhibits in November, hitting Reno, Oakland, Los Angeles, Phoenix, Portland (Ore), Seattle, and Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. The mild of this superb psych-rock daybreak can even quickly hit your property, so observe J.R.C.G. to know when the Sunshine will grace your eyes (and ears).
