THE ATLAS MOTH
THE ONE AMONGST THE WEED FIELDS
CANDLELIGHT

It’s unclear if Chicago, IL’s The Atlas Moth are trying to be tongue in cheek or celebratory by putting out this four-song EP of covers, but their metallic space sludge style and the songs they chose, ranging from the near black metal interpretation of “California Dreamin’”(The Mamas and Papas), to a modern psychedelic reworking of “Fearless” (Pink Floyd), plus a noisier version of “Golden” (Failure), and a raucous near industrial vibe on “Five to One” (The Doors) definitely yields interesting spins on (for the most part) well-known tunes. Exhibiting a broad range of musical likes in a quirky way, this disc plays like an experimental stopgap release yet still bears the band’s trademark oppressive quality, truly giving these songs a fresh spin for the heavy music fan.
