We created this video for you specifically for you. I don't always like the Youtube preview thumbnails, but I like this one. If you dig it, you will want to watch the video soundtracked by our own un-Crowley-ed fusion of Buddy Holly and Joy Division.

This is the final Glaze of Cathexis album. We will still be making music over here at the garage, but it sounds different now and we'll be putting that out under the Electrick Sages name. Here's our press release and the links for this one.
GLAZE of CATHEXIS
...are announcing the release of their new album, Bohemian Groovers.
Ueda / Tokyo - Japan. Roving Sage Media are thrilled to be releasing the latest album from Glaze of Cathexis, titled Bohemian Groovers.
What you will hear is a pulsating strain of psychedelic rock, first incubated in the Kanto Plain of Japan in 2004; now reaching its final iteration here in 2017. Visions were seen, channels were heard – the Creators have just made a quantum bounce into a different direction: what you get is an aural photograph of a time and place unique to them. Glaze of Cathexis are a duo embedded in the Land of Mu doing their sterling utmost to strike the right vibration of The Gong. Dig the “Deep Forest Bells,” riding a Pixified Jesus and Mary Chain wave of mutilation cresting on Beach Boy melodies. Dig the alternate dimension John Lennon pulse of “Pretend That We Begin.” Or, maybe find yourself in an earphone-to-ear performance of, what seems to be Ian Curtis and the Crickets, in “Dreaming of Forgotten Stars.” Reverberate along to “The Holy Mountain” while surfing the psychic jetstream of Alejandro Jodorowsky. They’ve got that something special to resonate with and the psychedelic soul to drive it all home. Beaming out to you the Bohemian Groovers.
Glaze of Cathexis are Matthew Comegys (Atlanta, USA) and Scott Atkinson (Brisbane, Australia), a collective who source and derive their creative inspiration and psycho-spiritual resonance from dwelling in Japan.
And the EP that preceded the album if you missed it:
