New Planet Trampoline returns after an 8-year hiatus with Dark Rides and Grim Visions, an expansive double-LP filled with melodic, experimental, and lyrically cryptic songs. The album veers between intricate psych-pop (“Ex-President”), raging garage-punk (“Nervous Intuition”), and multi-part prog epics (“Nearly Finished Face”) over the course of 69 mind-melting minutes.
“…seems to have been influenced by everyone yet retains a flavour all of its own, the music sprawling, trippy, and beautifully constructed.” – Simon Lewis, Terrascope Online
“And what raw power; like a more serious Dukes of Stratosphear, “Grim Visions” and “Ex-President” are as poptastic as the Pretties’ “Balloon Burning” or the Dukes’ “My Love Explodes.”” – Jack Rabid, The Big Takeover
“This is some dark, spooky neo-psychedelia…an updating of the sound that embraces the adventurous, occasionally nightmarish spirit of the original movement…” - Nathan Ford, The Active Listener
Dark Rides and Grim Visions is available on digital, CD, and gatefold LP formats.
