Boris

Austin Psych Fest Album Primer

Boris

Flood (Fangs Anal Satan)

Only Boris could tour behind an import-only rarity, self-released more than a decade ago. An understated and oft-overlooked watermark, 2000's Flood remains a work of calming mystery and subtle pleasures, revealing itself in four tidal movements stretched across 70 minutes. Imagine a Japanese version of Explosions in the Sky's The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place, looped and overlapped with guitars trickling like summer rain while rippling outward in hypnotic repetition. There's nothing else quite like Boris' deep catalog. (Sat., 7pm, Reverberation stage)
