4 stars In some sense, there is a good reason to label KALUTULIKSUAK as Psychedelic/Space Rock band considering that their first official, self-titled CD-release featured a sort of proto-space-rock (with programmed beats, swirling textured keyboards, swishing phased guitars, and groovy bass). Those obscure songs were recorded in 1992-1993 at rehearsals. Simultaneously, they also recorded very different and much more focused avant-rock songs (as GB) which you can download and taste from

And here comes a new album "Last Day of Sun" recorded in 2008. Space-Rock? Psychedelic? In the sense of HAWKWIND or OZRIC TENTACLES music it is not. But if you take, for example, French SHUB- NIGGURATH, blend it with Danish-Swedish ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE, and add authentic Siberian Shamanic chanting (sang on self-invented language), you would get a picture of how KALUTALIKSUAK sounds this time. This is an associative description for "rock" generation. Though, if your musical interests spread to classical academic music, the better description would be "an adaptation of Igor Stravinsky, Dmitry Shostakovich, or Alfred Schnittke's music to the format of rock-quartet".

Yes, it's very uneasy listening. Yes, it might sound too chaotic and confused (like certain works of aforementioned academic composers). But it's very concentrated and loaded performance, which sometimes even lacks in this free-loose spirit of psychedelic jamming.
