3 stars With a song title like Flower Travellin' Man this band leaves no doubt where they got their inspiration from, right from the legendary Flower Travellin' Band that created similar heavy psych kraut/rock more then 30 years earlier.

Earthless is not tribute band but brings a modern variant of heavy psych, very similar to Monster Magnet's Tab ... 25 and the instrumental side of recent Motorpsycho albums. In comparison to those bands they keep things entirely instrumental, creating outstretched heavy jams that also bring Loop to mind. They create great grooves but miss a bit of the songwriting qualities, and at 20 minutes per jam, things can get a bit dreary if you're not in the mood.

The comparison to the great 70s examples isn't entirely favorable neither, the jams are certainly not as adventurous, experimental, blowing and free as those from Guru Guru or Ash Ra Tempel's rocking side. The band sticks to a simple rocking groove and doesn't let go of that for most of the time.

This is a fun listen, but only recommended if you already exhausted the discography of the bands mentioned above.
