San Anto psych quintet Flower Jesus posted a new tune, "Buddha & Crowley," before their set at Paper Tiger this weekend. Named after the Indian sage and British occultist Aleister Crowley, the single opens with backmasking and cellphone errors before opening up into a rock 'n' roll stomp.

Over an arpeggiated backbone and thick marinations of tremolo, singers Torrin Metz and Rob Martinez walk the line between the titular poles of spirituality and the "worlds we live between." But no words are necessary for the chorus, an excellent "Ah-ah" section that carries the song towards its faded outro.

Recorded at Eastern Sun Studios in Austin, "Buddha & Crowley" is the first offering from Flower Jesus since their 2014 EP Cosmic American Music. It's also the first acid-bitter taste from their new effort Wilt. If the new tune is an indication, we can expect a heavier (re)incarnation of Flower Jesus.
