iTunes FREE DISCOVERY DOWNLOAD of “Grass” from The Black Ryder + Tour Dates with Spectrum

By on April 26, 2011
The track Grass from The Black Ryder is the FREE Itunes Discovery Download of the week. 
“The debut album from these shoegazers from Down Under, Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride, doesn’t have a superfluous song in its 11-song mix – and even flaunts a few dreamy alt-country jams that bring to mind mid 90’s David Lynch cinematography. Like the engravings on a memorial, Scott Von Ryper and Aimee Nash’s haunting and unintelligible lyrics are subtle etchings upon and escarpment of droning guitars layered with chilling effects. Its music with a story, but it doesn’t force its narrative on the listener.”   Itunes Music
The Black Ryder are currently out on the road supporting Spectrum including a stint at this weekend’s Austin Psych Fest and then on to New York City for 2 headlining shows. 
Check out the haunting video for “Sweet Come Down” here: 
“What if Brian Jonestown Massacre had a girl as the lead singer?  That’s the basic premise behind The Black Ryder, an Aussie duo that cranks out layered beats and synthesized harmonies on guitars, organs, and various instruments of electro-joy.”  Nylon Magazine
