Shimmercore’s Cat Wizards – Toxoplasma EP

a3991203486_16The latest Shimmercore EP under a new touring band name, Shimmercore’s Cat Wizards. Is the project of long-time friend Mike Conteras who plays guitars; bass and sings the vocals, the other band member credited on the EP is Chris Cockrill on drums.  The whole EP was recorded completely on 8-track analog 1/4″ tape.

The opener Martian Birthday has a distinctly 60s garage rock vibe.  Is a very confident and memorable grabbing the listener by the ears. The whole EP has a Indian flavour this is apparent in the track Bee Zen Blender, in Mike’s previous albums he usually has some sitar parts.

The title track Toxoplasma has languid hushed vocals and a gritty fuzzy guitar line, which is sublime.  Easily my favourite on here.
