Video: The Cosmic Dead – ‘The White Rabbit’

I knew immediately, without hearing anything by this band, that I was going to like them, with a name that perfectly describes their sound.  Discovered via the latest Astral Visions podcast,  The Cosmic Dead are a trance-inducing Krautrock/Space-Rock collective making one unholy, unearthly sound.  Having recently supported Arbouretum in their native Glasgow, The Dead are set to launch their debut album with a cassette only release through Who Can You Trust, though I have a feeling a free download of this may crop up on the excellent Winning Sperm Party label.  There are just 150 copies available which the band have described as a ‘an 80 minute mind melting affair featuring four tracks.’  I’m unsure if the track below on the soundcloud widget will feature, but fans of Kyuss, Sleep, Hawkwind, Can, Stereolab et al, will surely find lots to love about The Cosmic Dead.  The video comes complete with trippy Alice In Wonderland imagery.
