It is here. The moment you’ve been waiting for. Ever since the dawn of human civilization, men have fought, for love, gods, and land. Over the course of thousands of years, man progressed, finally looking in on himself, and became aware of his condition. This is when the light sparkled in his eye. Then the goal became clear, but the path to it remained in shadows. It has been a long and arduous journey, with many mistaken routes and close calls, but finally, we are here. We stand at the precipice of peace on earth and good will for all. And you’re holding the soundtrack. Let the needle fall, and experience…THE BIRTH OF BLUES PILLS.
Your savior has risen, and she’s got long, blonde hair and a voice to shake the mountains of our sad and desperate past until they tumble upon the demons of false reality. Out of that rubble, her two archangels will build a New Earth, with the power of electric love that bashes the heads of those who resist them. Out of BLACK SMOKE, comes BLISS.
These two songs represent the earliest known mark of that which has no beginning and no end. Recorded right at the source, in the Heartland of the United States of America on a farm estate near Story City, Iowa, it bottles that initial spark from which Blues Pills was born, in its most natural and fresh form. It is the end of the beginning of that which will save us all. Take a drink, and enjoy the trip.

“I can see why [Maximum Ames Records] was so eager to share this amazing debut of eerily authentic power psych with probably one of the most incredible female vocalists out there…Seriously a new impression of classic rock, with huge riffs, while everything has this deep big room tone, but with a once removed feel of texture to the whole track; it can’t possibly have been recorded this last year.”
