AUDIO: Illicit Eagle – “Illegal Eagles”
Illicit Eagle is the experimental side project of Anton Sieger, known for playing in indie psych-pop band Ravi/Lola. His debut record is a series of quirky lo-fi beats that even sample a few bird calls. There’s some mind-warping psychedelic effects that complement minimalist percussion, like you’re tripping on drugs while walking through a vibrantly colorful meadow. “Googoots” becomes the climactic point, featuring the voice of someone describing what he sees in a surreal state as the Eagles fly. We hope to hear more from the Illicit Eagle in the coming months.
