The Skinny: Montreal quintet, USA Out Of Vietnam has posted a song entitled “Tonight, The Dead Walk” on YouTube. A fifteen minute cosmic voyage across heaviness and psychedelic bliss, the song closes out the group’s debut album, Crashing Diseases and Incurable Airplanes. The album is available on CD, gatefold double-vinyl and digital via New Damage Records (Ken Mode, Biblical) now. Listen to “Tonight, The Dead Walk” below.

Considering themselves merely a “pop” band, the members manage to weave in a myriad of influences through each song, which includes elements of black metal, doom, drone, minimalist composition, sludge, post-rock, shoe-gaze, dream pop and classic seventies radio dial gold. As The Needle Drop proclaims this mesh of styles is done so “seamlessly that the result is equally cohesive and bewildering.”
