The Electric Nature rings in the season with 'Winter Jam'

Posted By on Tue, Dec 3, 2013 at 2:00 PM


Psychedelic jams tend to run one of two routes when tripping out into infinity. Sure, there's the high road lighted by distorted squalls of feedback, fried solos, and overall maximum sensory overload. But there's an alternate lane of lysergic monotony driven by only a chord or two. The Electric Nature - albeit masters of both - follow up their recent split with Forget the Times with this new, extended jam of hypnotic, locked-in repetition. "Winter Jam" maximizes its 11-minute duration with a slow and steady march toward the horizon. Although the pace never builds, keeping to its drugged but headstrong speed, lead member Michael Potter riffs into oblivion in a sprawling spiral. Each cycle of the dark motif adds layer upon layer of reverb and echo. The wordless vocals only add to the wide-eyed disorientation, otherwise known as an aural trip. "Winter Jam" will be available on Sunup Recordings' upcoming Living Room Visions Winter Tape, but you can stream it now below.
