The album is available now for free preview exclusively on Heavy Planet. The digital release will be available for download from major online retailers and from our Bandcamp page on July 18, and will see a limited edition 12” vinyl release in the fall courtesy of our long-time label co-conspirators No Balls Records (Germany) and Strange Magic Records (US).
Oculus delivers Borracho’s signature fuzzed out, dynamic grooves with heaping helpings of the low-and-heavy you’ve come to expect. The songs are sonically familiar, with a clear emphasis on riffs and rhythms, but the vibe the band achieves is a step in a freer power-trio direction. The album doesn’t lack for hooks, either, and captures us stretching out to epic proportions as we are wont to do.
Stream the record now at Heavy Planet, and preorder from Bandcamp to get an immediate download of “Stockpile”! The digital download is only $5!
