Review by Rivertree
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR PSIKE Team & Band Submissions
4 stars This EP is a collection of leftovers from their 'Octopus' sessions during 2008/2009. The four tracks are completely improvised, and unique as they were recorded. Wow, Sel Balamir performs magic here - the guitar often sounds multi-layered. And so they do not need an additional keyboards/synthesizer player. A revelation for every space rock fan, well ... except you are keen on getting in touch with some heavy Hawkwind related stuff throughout.

Which means this is more of a trippy floating behaviour, and provided with much empathy including sensitive drum and bass work. However, we have an exception of course - while closing the first song Executive the band runs into a nervous breakdown The following The Chace shows some post rock impressions where the title track and the closing Solaris can be rated as cosmic trips per se.

Recorded in the night time this may be attempts in order to chill out in between. All three musicians play very relaxed, mostly. As stated before Sel Balamir is able to offer much variety, this is not boring at all, tension-filled to the contrary. I'm still not convinced about 'Octopus' at this moment - but 'Fractal' at least is a successful giveaway comprising more than 20 minutes of fine space rock - check it out!
