Minneapolis torn-leather psychedelicists Daughters Of The Sun cop a tripped deathless vibe on their fourth, and most far-gone, full-length, Ride To Die. Severed by distance (singer/guitarist Nick Koenigs transplanted to LA), and pulled omni-directionally by other projects (Koenigs as Filthy Huns; percussionist Bennett Johnson and multi-instrumentalist Collin Gorman Weiland in Dreamweapon), the trio transmute these tolls into seven of their best badlands kosmosis interstate benders yet taped. The disintegrated chemistry of dirt-road hunts like “Desert Grave” or “Sater’s Ghost” sounds ingrained but reborn, bruised engines re-revving to life. Highway synth rhythms flutter between motorcycle riffs and pummeling war drums, evoking landscapes harboring psychic venom, a spirit bleaching the grease-stained sand. Moments of survivor wisdom burn too – the burned lope of “Lonely At The Top,” the rainstorm techno pulsing under “Fly By,” the 4:20 fatal vision intro to “Reigns Of Iron.” As songs and textures the LP pushes past their previous recordings into some unknown wrecked horsepower zone. Debut European tour this October currently being booked; drop a line if interested in helping or participating in any fashion. Recorded in Minneapolis, MN; mastered by Sonic Boom at New Atlantis. Artwork by Collin Gorman Weiland. Edition of 400.
