Headroom: March 27, 2019 Lodge Room, Los Angeles (California Flashback)

Here’s a tape courtesy of our buddy anazgnos, who hit up both nights of the L.A. California Flashback shows, put on by Black Editions to promote the latest volume of Tokyo Flashback. Headroom opened up night two with a burst of guitar pyrotechnics courtesy of Kryssi Battalene. In this context you can feel the connection between her distortion-drenched sound and the early wave of heavy Japanese psych like High Rise and Acid Mothers Temple.

Headroom have got a new EP out, New Heaven, in addition to a repressing (finally!) of Head in the Clouds, which disappeared rather quickly in its original release. Do pick up both those treasures, and enjoy some live Headroom too while you’re at it!
