Eye are a heavy psych/space rock trio from Columbus, Ohio and they have just released their first EP called "Center Of The Sun". From the time Matt Bailey came in touch and introduced me to their music, I knew that I wouldn't be disappointed because Eye consists of Matt Auxier and Brandon Smith from The Pretty Weapons and Matt Bailey from Teeth Of The Hydra. Adam Smith (of Deadsea) also contributes in the record with his excellent organ-Mellotron-ARP-Moog playing skills as well as by being EP's engineer/producer.
When you put this one playing there is not a single chance that you're going to stop it. In the contrary the only button you are going to reach, it'll be the repeat one. The EP hooks you up right after the same-titled 19min track kicks in and the interest keeps growing until the last song "Rik Rite" ends. The songs' flow is amazing and they're like well-structured, powerful psych jams. Eye incorporate Hawkwind's and Pink Floyd's legacy, Can's improvisation, Sabbath's holy grooves and Om's meditative vibes into a space trip, sometimes to moon's dark, unknown side and others to sun's vital light. A wonderful multi-layered release which encourages you to listen it again and again in order to discover all the aspects of their music. Highly recommended!
