Welsh psychedelic rockers, The Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk, (‘milk‘ for short) are this month’s ‘band to watch.’
They’ve only been going for a year but are already causing a stir on the streets of Cardiff, playing odd venues and pop-up shows around the city. It’s difficult to put a single genre to the trio, they are a sort of mishmash of stoner-rock, psychedelia, metal, and funk – a weird but wonderful concoction that goes together exceptionally well.
The band consists of Grant Jones on guitar, Marcell Davies on bass, Luke Llewellyn on drums, and all of them sing; they are currently writing, and an album’s on the cards.
Don’t be put off by their ‘albumlessness’, they’ve got some cracking demos on their Soundcloud.
Their most recently published demo, Something Inside Me, recorded live at the iconic Rockfield Studios is an explosion of good old heavy metal, harking back to the greats, influences of Black Sabbath and Deep Purple can be heard on the track. The next demo, The Black Dog (Ain’t No Turning Back) is a total trip to the ’70s, with blues, funk, and rock influences from the era coming through clearly. Last but not least is Salt, a demo released six months ago; bass-heavy, fuzzy, and superbly psychedelic – very Electric Wizard.
Keep an eye out for The Biggest Thing Since Powdered Milk, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot more from them in the future.
