Yeah man! it's nice to hear some Pink Floyd "Wish You Were Here" / "The Wall" era influences every now and then - it's kind of rare. I bet you a ton of people out there had love affairs with those records, although now they'll deny it... Admittedly, in our teens we were obsessed with them. But when we went back in the band's discography and heard Syd Barret... it kind of changed our lives. However, Austin, TX psychedelic space rock band The Boxing Lesson carry obvious Pink Floyd influences from the Roger Waters dominance period. They premiered the first video from their new Muerta EP today. The intense, apocalyptic clip depicts singers and a variety of debris slowly sinking to the bottom of the ocean, set to the song's dark, sweeping lament.
