Dead Meadow has been a favorite of mine for along time now and this release caught me off guard. I didn't know it was coming, but I am glad it did!
I love this band for their raw, psychedelic sound, but this album is a little more structured and refined. None the less, it still has everything I expect this band to deliver! Solid record and its constantly on repeat for me at this moment!
In 2021, they began work on a collection of jams and experiments for Blues Funeral Recordings’ PostWax series, working up a disparate yet cohesive group of songs that placed new works alongside the culmination of ideas they’d been tinkering with since the band’s genesis.
Force Form Free is spacey and dreamy at times, grimly propulsive at others, and captures Dead Meadow continuing their effortless exploration of the transporting, astral-gazing form they’ve spent their entire existence pushing forward.
