Föllakzoid - "Electric"

I had never heard of Föllakzoid before yesterday, and I'm already pretty obsessed based on this one song. "Electric" is off their forthcoming album III (due on March 31 on Sacred Bones Records), and it's a doozy. Clocking in at just under 12 minutes, it's an indie rock jam that is like A Ghost is Born era Wilco minus the country side of things, but with plenty of groove and a hint of Swedish death metal. It's all blended in with psychedelic loops and synths, not at all sounding like what I'd expect from a Chilean band. But it all comes together in one of the most intriguing sounds I've heard all year. 

For more information on Föllakzoid, check out their Bandcamp. You can listen to "Electric" below.
