Rawhead: Psychopomp

The lifespan of Psychopomp, the 10-track debut vinyl release from Sub-Bombin Records instrumental beat-maker Rawhead, is one that lacks an expiration date. It continues to remain fresh ever since its July release.

The album itself is a rather quick listen, but that’s what gives it part of its charm, making it easy to vibe out to on repeat. The familiarity of the rhythms upon a second or third listen help the listener notice new details in the production, such as on the multidimensional “Soliloquy.” Another interesting detail is in the play on words in track titles: “Obtuse” is the shortest track and “Pause/Still” features playful, rhythmic diversity.
