Third Eye Stimuli delivers a special vinyl release of Super Giant & World Music Oddities from Sydney darlings, The Uplifting Bell Ends!
The Uplifting Bell Ends take you on a sonic journey through space, nostalgia, dystopian futures, people, love and beyond. The production and colour of the album was loaded with intrigue and without comparison – “in what era was this album exactly from?” The songs were charming and its instrumental hooks captivated, while obscure titles like ‘The Mysterious Spacemen’s Demonic Castle’, ‘Earth on the Verge of Destruction’ and ‘The Poison Moth Kingdom’ draw you further into the Super Giant world.
World Music was released not too long before Super Giant in 2015, and despite its inherent genius, remained for the most part untapped in the internet ether.
A little mellower in approach, but equally as tasteful and catchy, the album was recorded mostly in bedrooms and living rooms by James French (frontman) and the band. The songs from this album seem to be more personal and emotive as explained by James, “I was hopelessly in love with a foreign beauty. We were so deeply in love and when she later broke my heart our music took quite a different form.”
Even the front cover of the record transports you to another dimension, thanks to the artful hand of Luke Player.
