[Quick Fixes] Tia Carrera - Visitors/Early Purple EP

Tia Carrera - Visitors/Early Purple EP
Having maintained a discographical radio-silence for about 8 years (since 2011, Cosmic Priestess), Tia Carrera from Austin, Texas (US) are back with a two track EP release 'Visitors/Early Purple' that one could concider as a 34minute long jam in two parts.

Those familiar with the sound of Tia Carrera can be sure that they will get what they already must have been expecting for the band's come back. For those unfamiliar with the works of the band: get ready for some groovy heavy rock jams with psychedelic mood, lengthy, tasty solos and hazy atmosphere. Alcohol consumption is strongly advised during the listening...

The EP is going to be available only on 180gr vinyl and digital format. Pre-orders are already available through Small Stone. Below you can enjoy the Side-B of the EP (Early Purple) which is already available on Small Stone's bandcamp.

The recording was made at BBQ Shack, Austin, TX

Small Stone's press release:
What can you say about Tia Carrera? Longevity, stamina, power, grace, sensuality, and telepathy? Don't forget bone shakingly loud, always impressive and truly psychedelic.

Jason Morales (guitar) and Erik Conn (drums), each with a reputation in ATX for their shredness, are now pushing 20 years together as Tia Carrera with zero signs of slowing down. They've recruited longtime friend and legendary bass wizard, Curt Christenson (Dixie Witch/Crimson Devils) as a permanent member, in a move made a few years ago that has emboldened the band's sound and dynamic, telepathic talent, and steadfast trajectory of heavy-psych-blues-bliss exploration.

The band is mysteriously and famously selective about what they officially release to the public. With every performance unique by the improvisation of their music, they've amassed quite a collection of recorded material, both live performances and private studio recordings.

Culled from the latter are the blistering plight of "Visitors" and muscle-car groove of "Early Purple", both of which can be heard on Tia Carrera's forthcoming release on Small Stone Records in Spring 2019.

Tia Carrera continue to gain new fans, influence their peers, ignite the legend worldwide, and are more respected and relevant than ever as veterans known to take their listeners on a journey of tripped-out and high energy proportions. It's clear to anyone in earshot the band still loves what they do. And when they play, they're loud enough that just about everyone is in earshot.
the band's words for themselves:
Playing improvised live and loud. We "jam" sure but we're not a typical "jam band". We're more into the heavy stuff than say "The Dead". All respects though. Hail hail rock n roll. Long live The Melvins & The Jesus Lizard. BOOM
