Motorowl release live video for alternate version of “Beloved Whale”

Psychedelic doom unit Motorowl have issued a live video for an alternative version of their single “Beloved Whale”. The group offered:

“The ‘Beloved Whale’ session was a big deal for us. We wanted to capture the energy of playing together because this is the only thing that we actually can do. So we borrowed some real nice equipment from friends and went into the Violet Flame Studio for 2 days to record a special version of this song on tape. We only had a few takes, so we focused on ourselves and filmed every single take we did. Every version was slightly different and we chose the most natural one.

Nerds only: we used a Marshall JMP from 1977, Marshall JCM 800 replica, Fender Bassman Replica, Pearl Vorg 101, a 70s Orange cab, an old Gretsch drum set (26 inch bassdrum!), a Hammond Portable Organ with Leslie and a Roland RE301 Tape Echo for the e-piano. Recorded on a Tascam tape recorder with a bunch of vintage Neumann microphones.”

The song appears on the band’s latest outing Om Generator, out now on Century Media Records. Get your copy of the record today through Amazon and iTunes.

Motorowl will be supporting Die Apokalyptischen Reiter later this year on their upcoming European tour. You can find their complete itinerary following the song stream.
