Warlocks, The / Heavy Deavy Skull Lover 12"
Heavy Deavy Skull Lover is the fourth album by the Los Angeles based neo-psychedelic rock band, the Warlocks. It was released in 2007 by Tee Pee Records; a small psychedelia themed label also home to band cohorts, The Brian Jonestown Massacre. The album is produced by Rod Cervera, who had previously worked on debut album, Rise and Fall. In contrast to the more refined sounding and major label released, Surgery, the album features a rougher and less melodic sound, described by Drowned in Sound as akin to an "elongated jamming session". The album was recorded as a stripped down four piece, in departure from the octet, dual drummer formation of previous releases.
