NEW ALBUM: "Premeditations" (LACHLAN X. MORRIS)

October 22, 2018

 

 ALBUM: Premeditations
ARTIST: Lachlan X. Morris


Just when you thought you knew all the genres out in the big bad world, along comes Lachlan X. Morris with his self-proclaimed "psychadelic dad-rock" and a bop of a new album 'Premeditations'.

Whether you're into psyched-up prog rock, party starters or songs that challenge the nature of the modern world, 'Premeditations' is an energetic outing across 10 tracks that plans, predicts and propels a sonic doomsday, and the end of the world sounds pretty dang tasty.

 

The title track kicks off in hooky style with driving beats covered in a psychadelic crunch and a side of pumping organs, before sliding into the woozy instrumental 'Sun Shedding' and the lovable off-kilter 'Stray Dog'.

 'STRAY DOG' (LACHLAN X. MORRIS)

 

 

The futuristic tinges permeate throughout the remainder of the album, with slow and creamy sprawlers ('1st World Bros', 'Body N Soul'), emotive ruminaters ('Bloodhounds', 'Hands In Your Pockets') and a closing dancefloor pumper that subtly delves into 21st century greed ('Gluttony A.D.).

 

Across the board there's a catchy cataclysm, both musically and lyrically, bundling woozy distortion and a distrust of impulses and technology into a crisp vintage pop-rock package that maintains its ethos in an entertaining manner.

 

It's quite possible Lachlan X. Morris has simultaneously come from the past and the future to warn us of our wayward ways with his brand new album 'Premeditations' that sits in its own modern retro paradise. If this is what the apocalypse sounds like, bring on the end of the world (and bring your synthesisers).
