3 stars Some brand new output from this Austin/Texas based experimental rock project around Scott Telles. They are known for a dizzying discography, also including several CD-R, 7'', cassette and split productions, often released in very limited editions. In any case 'High And Inside' is another unpredictable piece of work featuring a distinctive bandwith. Although space rock remains to be the fundament again, they are drifting into multiple directions, sometimes really puzzling and demanding several listening sessions to acquire a taste for this stuff.

A floating behaviour and soaring guitars - right from the start they indulge us with the easy going cosmic track Maroons - a little warning though - you shouldn't feel too comfortable now after that. Don't know whose Grandpa is meant actually ... and what happened in the end ... too much alc or dope, eh? One of his parties must have got out of control probably .. and so the following Grandpa's Birthday evolves into an excentric acid jam, suddenly interrupted by some voice samples and ending with a delirious atmosphere. Now you ultimately are acquainted with the band's experimental approach.

Then ST 37 even refer to their roots with the garage/punk firecracker The White Commanche which leaves a sea of debris behind in some way.Borg9 evolves from this situation when expressing some kind of disorder where all common rules are called in question. The band designs a futuristic industrial mood here, coupled with spooky electronics. Furthermore the songs are bumping into straightforward heavy psych, fall back into a hallucinatory habitat here and there, are longing for the good old 60s psychedelia with the innocent Just You until they lift off to an extended weird space trip again including Pamphlet Of Light and If You Feel, You're Healed.

'High And Inside' literally implemented - they surely know how to act out their artistic freedom. Mostly off the beaten path - common melodic moments are rare. One or two may be willing to think that this is too much of a good thing - anyhow, lovers of avantgarde space rock provided with a noisy flavour will get their money's worth - promised. 3.5 stars!
