Some Kind Of Magic with Mellow Lizard - An Interview

Psicodelia grega a serviço do derretimento de neurônios, este é o Mellow Lizard, projeto capitaneado pelo próprio Mr. Mellow Lizard.

É em Some Kind of Magic, o EP de estreia que o Mellow Lizard apresenta seu cartão de visitas, andamentos arrastados, pegajosos e aquela vocalização preguiçosamente chapada guiam as seis viagens sonoras.

O Mellow Lizard vem engrossar o poderio atual da espetacular cena psych mundial. 

Escute alto, e em todos os sentidos preferencialmente.
