Over the album’s forty-odd minutes, Cobra Family Picnic create a fuzzy, blissed-out haze that touches on an entire encyclopaedia of underground psychedelic: the trance-inducing keys of Suicide, the post-Velvets go-go freakout of Les Rallizes Denudes, the smoky snake-song of early Doors, the pulsating locked grooves of Neu. You get eight mind-fried cuts of cyclical psychedelic minimalist jams, and when the NASA radio transmissions beam in across the grooves and Randall Demsey’s echo-drenched vocals rend the darkness, you can start to feel your brain being teleported to the outer reaches of the universe (man!) .
Magnetic Anomaly is a Cardinal Fuzz and Sky Lantern record co-production, released on both limited blue/lilac recycled color vinyl and standard black vinyl, as well as in limited single-runs of Sam Giles vinyl-replica CDs and hand-numbered cassette.

High quality trippy psych in the same sonic space as Sun Araw and Moon Duo.
