Today I received Comets on Fire - Avatar in the mail which I had ordered earlier in the week. The album arrived earlier than expected and did not disappoint. The cover art is nicely stylized to match the style of music that cannot be described due to its constant flowing nature that causes me to describe it as erratic yet stable. The first track start out quite garage or jam band like but then transitions into a nice psychedelic quality. The feel of the album twists as it plays which gives it a unique quality that I’ve been looking for lately.

The track listing is

  1. “Dogwood Rust” – 7:48
  2. “Jaybird” – 6:08
  3. “Lucifer’s Memory” – 7:03
  4. “The Swallow’s Eye” – 6:53
  5. “Holy Teeth” – 2:59
  6. “Sour Smoke” – 8:47
  7. “Hatched Upon the Age” – 6:08

Hopefully tomorrow I will receive another album in the mail and even quite possibly Comets on Fire - Blue Cathedral — which would make this a COF weekend for me.
