Psych-rockers Hot Fudge are gearing up to celebrate the release of a damn solid debut, #1 Tape, this Friday. In advance of the release show, we're pleased as punch to premiere the album's second single, which you can stream below.
"Other Side of the Gates" follows the pumped-up "To Be One Ask One," which you heard way back in January. Where "To Be One" was tightly wound, scuzzed-out and power-poppy, the new tune is a lovely, extended, somewhat Floydian psych jam that ends in a raucous guitar assault.
#1 Tape, which was recorded with studio wizard Derek Almstead, will be available on cassette Friday at Hot Fudge's show at the Caledonia Lounge.
