Pocahaunted – Island Diamonds


Someone help me out here! I know very little about this band apart from the fact that they produce pretty awesome music and describe themselves as “the Olsen twins of blissed out drone”, which is definitely a great description. Recorded over three months, Island Diamonds is a record that definitely requires repeated listens to fully appreciate, with layers upon layers of sound built up on each track. It consists of only four songs, with the shortest clocking in at just under 8 minutes which might put quite a few people off. In some ways Pocahaunted remind me of early Animal Collective, with lots of tribal drums and reverb as well as a touch of electronic stuff thrown in for good measure. One of the guys from Racoo-oo-oons also plays sax on this.
Also, they’re pretty hot, but I probably shouldn’t say that.

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
