Review by Rivertree
3 stars LA OTRACINA operate like a trio as usual on 'Blood Moon Riders'. Featuring guitarist Ninni Morgia they are offering an interesting blend of heavy psych, shoegaze, garage and spacey impressions. It's obvious soon: the band takes time to let the instrumental songs evolve. In opposite of providing short, compact, easily structured music this is tension-filled and experimental really - surprising breaks and turns included.

Starting with the longest one Inner Mind Journey the track is presented in a heavy psych mood mostly, the acid guitar work, powerful drums, a punching bass, tempo changes - great - with jamming character for sure and decent keyboard adds. Both parts of Ballad Of The Hot Ghost Mama are floating spacey pieces with dominant echoing guitar work. Either overdubs are used here or bassist Evan Sobel plays the second guitar. The wrapped Zunblazer is turning into a more psychedelic rocking behaviour provided with a gripping intro and a memorable melody later on. And then the closing weird straightforward rocking Drifted Memory follows, now embedded in melancholic shoegaze impressions in the vein of 'Windy & Carl'.

Concipated as a single vinyl release 'Blood Moon Riders' does not contain more than 40 minutes of music in total - enough though to consider LA OTRACINA to be a skilled band with an experimental approach. The album is made up with a high proportion of floating spacey parts and is definetely worth it to be checked out - 3 and a half stars for that.
