Hypnoticon is the first new release by London's Teeth Of The Sea since their acclaimed debut album Orphaned By The Ocean (LAUNCH 031CD). Since their debut was released, Teeth Of The Sea have been taking their unique sound around the UK's stages and blowing away acolytes while touring with the likes of Oneida, Wooden Shjips and The Heads. Now Rocket Recordings are proud to introduce Hypnoticon, an EP of new material from Teeth Of The Sea. The EP kicks off with the track "In The Space Capsule (Love Theme)," and Queen fans amongst us will recognize this track as a cover version of a track from the Flash Gordon soundtrack. The band covered the entire album in front of the film (and in costume) on New Year's Eve 2009, and this track struck such a nerve that it became the opener of their live set, and was thus committed spectacularly to posterity. Those of you that witnessed their sets on the recent Oneida tour may recognize the second track "Hypnoticon Viva" as their set closer. An in-your-face keyboard-driven psychedelic juggernaut, it combines a formidable acid-fried propulsion with a white-light rock imperative that joins the cosmic dots between Spacemen 3 and Iron Maiden to euphoric effect. Finally, we have the track "The Island Is," an 11-minute travelogue of haunting ambience and panoramic melancholia that showcases Teeth Of The Sea at their most mournful, cinematic and otherworldly.
