A stacked bill features Brooklyn’s own Cloud Becomes Your Hand, who sublimely construct a melodic sprawl of alien soundscapes. On the new Rocks or Cakes, its familial, drug-inducing quirks gloriously rage full on. CBYH color its rainbow-streaked otherworld with psych radiance, weirdo proggy damage ‘n’ freak-folkery, harmonic sing-alongs, chants and synth noise and streaks while traces of Americana fingerage of John Fahey, Oneida-styled space-rock trippiness, and Pink Floydian warped eclectics hover overhead. Setting the stage for CBYH will be eardrum busting guitarorrist Nick Millevoi of Philly prog-jazz scientists Many Arms, who will undoubtedly be the polar opposite of CBYH, bleeding from his ax punishing, deafening skronk epics from his just-dropped third solo joint, Numbers on the Side. with Alden Penner (of The Unicorns) and Pours.
