Today we feel privileged to showcase the band MASERATI, a psychedelic post-rock group from Athens, Georgia. Unfortunately they are going through some tough times; apparently a terrible tragedy struck on November 8th when their drummer Gerhardt Fuchs passed away in an accident near his home in Brooklyn. Some more information about this can be found at their website below.
This is what their label had to say about the band’s most recent endeavors:
In anticipation of their long-awaited new album coming in 2010, Athens, GA’s premier (or maybe only) psych-dance-rock-etc stalwarts collect their rare and out-of-print vinyl tracks from the past couple years onto CD for the first time. Featuring all four tracks from their blink-and-it’s-gone limited-edition split LP with Zombi, as well as their remix LP (featuring The DFA’s Tim Goldsworthy and !!!’s Justin Van Der Volgen), Passages is augmented with two previously unreleased tracks – the Moog-fueled meditative trance of Steve Moore’s “Monoliths” remix, and the positively sublime emotional heft of “Do You Hear The Nightbirds Calling You?”, all remastered from the original master tapes and packaged with eye-popping new artwork. Also included on the Enhanced CD are two brilliant videos for “Inventions (Live)” and “This Is A Sight We Had One Day On The High Mountain.” [Temporary Residence Limited]
