Deep Trip (Sacred Bones), right? I mean, Arizona, that’s the state where people are. Destruction Unit, who are not related to New Jersey’s Flavor Unit, are a group. August 20th is when that Deep Trip will start and everyone will be moving around their hands as if they’re spinning the magic ball at a rave.

Okay, maybe not, but Destruction Unit are indeed a band from Arizona and Deep Trip is a forthcoming album that will be ready for release on August 20th. Their brand of music is rich with the psychedelic and folk wonders of the mid to late 60’s, back when people would head to clubs or basements, open up a lava lamp, pour it over themselves and get off on the trippy vibes. It has that victorious sound that will please fans of early Pink Floyd, David Bowie, and 13th Floor Elevators, with a bit of Sonic Youth thrown in for extra texture. A song called “Bumpy Road” may represent the road that they’re about to embrace beginning in a few weeks, and leading them close to the end of the year. They’ll be touring in both North America and Europe, so have a preview of Deep Trip below and then save a place for yourself (and maybe a friend or two) at the Destruction Unit show to come.
