Magical Dirt doesn’t drop until June 17, but the band have given Classic Rock an exclusive preview.
Most recently in the UK for April’s Desert Fest, Radio Moscow — made up of guitarist Parker Griggs, Anthony Meier (bass) and drummer Paul Marrone — have produced a record that’s a thunderous mix of driving blues-rock, wah-wah wonkiness, and skull-busting, headphone-shattering psychedelia.
Why Magical Dirt? “I came up with the title cause when I lived in the rancho up north in California”, says Griggs. “There was an old compost troft in the garden area. I poured old pre-used pot soils on top of it and a few weeks later hundreds of panaeolus subbalteatus magic mushrooms grew up out of it! I couldn’t believe it. They lasted me all summer and gave many crazy trips.”
