For many of us who suffer from existential dread but are too poor for therapy or fancy drugs, solace can be found in the universe-spanning ponderings of super genius Carl Sagan and in heavy doses of bone-rattling rock and roll. Portland group Billions and Billions offer both in beautiful, sludgy fashion, giving ode to Sagan in name and in exploratory orientation. On songs of epic length with titles as awesome as "Lunar Blue Balls," the band embarks on auditory odysseys with splitting guitar licks from Justin Acevedo. Tempos race as wildly as a heartbeat in a mind-bending high with Adam Bulgasem on drums, and with space-traveling sounds from Neal Munson on bass and Andrew Grosse on keys, Billions and Billions are the anecdote you need for when all other signs point to freaking the fuck out.
