"Halcyon Daze is Brooklyn based, heavy psychedelic trio River Cult's debut effort. The band's style comes from a range of influences, starting with the heavy sounds of the past, then pushing them into the future with a modern sensibility. The album moves fluidly through a range of emotions but still holds together as a cohesive whole; refusing to be burdened by a single genre. Though undeniably rooted in stoner rock and psychedelia, the subjects of River Cult's songs set the band apart by discussing feelings of angst and a struggle with the human condition. The tracks were all recorded live in the studio, with minimal overdubs and edits, each song flowing together seamlessly. "
