4 stars The Russian outfit OLE LUKKOYE was formed back in 1989, initially consisting of Boris Bardasch, Andrei Lawrinenko and Alexander Frolov. The aim of this band was to combine psychedelic music with world music and ethnic compositional features, a blend that over time gave them a fan base in Western Europe following various festival performances over the years. The US label Trail Records decided that 2009, which marked the 20th anniversary of Ole Lukkoye's founding, was a good time to present them to a US audience too. And the following year the compilation "Petroglyphs" was issued, and as customary with productions from this label features remastered and remixed tracks as well as a few token previously unreleased creations.

If a blend of psychedelic rock, ethnic music and space rock sounds enticing, and the band's own description of their music as ethnic trance doesn't put you off, chances are good that you'll revel in the sophisticated exploits of Russian act Ole Lukkoye. Sporting a plethora of exotic sounds, keyboard layers and vocals either spoken or chanted in a shamanistic manner, their blend of folk-inspired space rock is of a kind that should have a broad appeal, with fans of acts such as Ozric Tentacles a likely key audience.
