There is something undeniably appealing about music that evokes the desert landscapes of the American West. The imagery of sun-soaked plains of dust beneath a never ending blue sky has pulled at my heartstrings since I first heard the Dead’s “Jack Straw.” This landscape has had a clear influence on psychedelic and improvisational music, and provides the inspiration for BIG Something’s fourth album, Tumbleweed. The album is a sonic desert trip, which uses the barren landscapes as a canvas for an introspective journey.
North Carolina's BIG Something are excited to announce their new album, Truth Serum! Truth Serum, the band's third full-length album, will be released on November 4th, and features a guest appearance from NYC turntablist, DJ Logic. With a powerful sound that is both refreshingly original and yet classic in its approach, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, jazz and improv, in order to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles.
