Santiago based Holydrug Couple makes music that you're just as apt to find among 70s Latin American psych rock pioneers Aguaturbia as you are on the streets of Sydney or Brooklyn in 2014. Perhaps its the undeterred, balls out and incredibly textured music that Ives Sepúlveda and Manuel Parra make. Noctuary, out last year on Sacred Bones, is one of the great oversights of 2013's year end lists. "Motorcycle Ride/Black Owl Jam Revisited," which we highlight today, is a B-side to a 2012 7" the group put out on Chile's BYMRECORDS which has just arrived stateside. More than that, it's a microcosm of what the group does well -- merging noise and melody with psychedelic vogue and expert musicianship.
