Dinero Romero – “Laser Beam of Consciousness”


The stellar debut from Kentucky-based group Dinero Romero, “Laser Beam of Consciousness” evolves from quaintly meditative keys into rousing psych-rock hypnotics. The track is nicely representative of the band’s self-described “denim psych” sound, headlined by dual-drummers, fuzzy guitars, and ’60s key-driven nostalgia. Subdued vocals and reflective keys are gradually bolstered by bursting psych guitars, tonally present though never overwhelming to the point of distorting the track’s laid-back charm. This is a high-quality project that would have felt at home on Elephant 6 during its heyday.

The 7-piece band is comprised of bands from several notable Louisville acts, including The Last Origin, Blind Feline, Brewing Pines, Punkin, and Dr. Robert.

Per Dinero Romero, the track “touches on the feeling coalescing with another person and becoming one.”

“Laser Beam of Consciousness” and other memorable tracks from this month can also be streamed on the updating Obscure Sound’s ‘Best of September 2021’ Spotify playlist.

The track is also featured in the genre-based, best-of Spotify compilation Emerging Psychedelic Rock.
