“Salted Earth” – the free, downloadable cosmic-rock meteorite hurled into the atmosphere by Chicago’s VERMA – doesn’t take long before announcing its interstellar tendencies.

By the time Verma are two minutes and twenty seconds into second song “White Heat” (not to put too fine a point on it), they’ve delivered on the heart-stopping promise and third-eye cleansing properties of their sound: dramatic, expansive and always resolved to join the quest to explore the sonically freaky-deaky.

Verma come to our attention when checking out the line-up for Chicago Psych Fest 2, coming up later this month (in Chicago, conveniently enough). It looks intense. It sounds intense. It’s probably gonna be intense! I would try to make it if I were you.
