GEEZER New album ‘Groovy’

Based in Kingston, NY, GEEZER formed in 2012 and have
made a bluesy spirit a staple of their approach, and especially with
2014’s ‘Gage’ and their 2016 self-titled leading into
‘Psychoriffadelia’, they expanded this idea to more open, jammier
explorations, a take on heavy psychedelia still informed by the swamp
that led to their first European tour in 2017, including Freak Valley
Festival in Germany. They have shared stages with High on Fire, Acid
King, Nebula, Earthless, Ufomammut and many more. After spending the
better part of the last three years touring, writing and solidifying
their lineup around guitarist/vocalist Pat Harrington, bassist Richie
Touseull, drummer Steve Markota, the Kingston-based trio return with
what is unquestionably their most realized work to-date, ‘Groovy’. It is
their fourth long-player and solidifies their approach to trippy, heavy
blues and classic songwriting.
‘Groovy’ brings a jam-ready mentality together with sharp-edged songcraft. The material is united by that central undercurrent – timeless and undeniable. “We spent the better part of a year jamming, developing ideas and fine tuning arrangements,” Harrington informs. “This is the first time since the self-titled record that we took the time to really flesh out song structures, tempos, etc. I always talk about the ‘three pillars’ of the Geezer sound: heavy, trippy and groovy. With this album, some songs are heavy, some are trippy, but they ALL had to be groovy.” Regardless of tempo, mood, or any other theme that might show up in the songs, ‘Groovy’ is a love-letter to groove itself, and in paying that homage, GEEZER have discovered the truest reality of themselves yet. Whatever else groovy is, it’s them.
