Heads on Sticks

There are many musicians riding the wave of psychedelia these days. But most seem caught in the net of authenticity, trying to reproduce a sound that has already been, whether stylistically or through the recording process. Others take the approach of genre mating and bending, blending their influences with more modern sounds or a danceable driving force behind it. There will always be a difference between just doing something and doing something well. With so much music at our disposal now, "well" requires more than just a proficiency for songwriting - it needs to be new, better, different in order to stand out. Heads on Sticks is the modern psychedelic experience that has ripped itself from the mold, broken it, and left a sticky trail to a place most have yet to tread.


Originally conceived as the catchall for the home audio experiments of David Mueller (Birds of Avalon), Heads on Sticks may have been born in a bedroom, but it has grown too large to contain. It has crystalized over the past several years, both live and in the studio, into it's own peculiar beast. Fastening ambient sound and rough-hewn samples to gluey bass lines and loping grooves, Heads on Sticks is new-fashioned kaleidoscopic music that serves heavy beat and obtuse melody in equal measure. And despite the glistening ooze that drips off it, Heads on Sticks remains remarkably spotless.
