Its retro-psychedelia night at Union Pool as Weird Owl, Naam, and Heavy Hands will team up for a show at TONIGHT (2/20) to celebrate the release of Weird Owl‘s Tee Pee debut, Ever The Silver Cord be Loosed out NOW… pick it up here. NSFW show flyer is below.

With Tee Pee Records debut, Ever the Silver Cord Be Loosed, the Brooklyn-based band has figured out how to make their alt-country psych rock work for them. Sure, there’s plenty of “Heart of Gold” twang to tracks like “13 Arrows, 13 Stars” and “Phases of the Moon,” but this time around, Weird Owl doesn’t sound so indebted to the Crazy Horse frontman’s body of work (okay, maybe parts of “In the Secrecy of Oceans” are very reminiscent of “Ohio”).

The band’s best on “Mind Mountain,” “Do What th’ Owl Wilt,” and “Flying Low Through the Air After Thunder,” numbers where they up the psych quotient while still maintaining strong songwriting focus. -[Stoner Rock]

Check out the smooth retro-rockin’ sounds of “Mind Mountain” and “Skeletelepathic” available for download above. Weird Owl also has another show on their calendar… a little more than a week later (Feb 28th) at Pianos with Wicked Hemlocks.

Naam, who recently signed on with Tee Pee Records, are currently working on their full-length long-player, due in late 2009. Heavy Hands‘ debut, Smoke Signals, dropped in November of last year. Julian Cope had some kind words to say about it.
