Jalayan biography
Jalayan is a psychedelic/space rock band from Milan, Italy that formed in 2017. Their debut album, 2019's Sonic Drive, featured a lineup of Alessio Malatesta on keyboard, Matteo Chiappa on bass, Vincenzo Calvano on guitar, and Dario Marchetti on drums.

Jalayan performs music at the modern heavier end of the psychedelic paradigm. Inspired by world ethnic music and spacey electronics, their music is both hard hitting and ethereal. They are noted to incorporate cosmic light and visuals to live performances to round out the psychedelic experience. For fans of Ozric Tentacles or Quantum Fantay.

4 stars Jalayan is one of those bands I ran across from a local radio station, in this case KRVM out of Eugene, Oregon on 91.9FM on a prog-rock program called Soundscapes aired every Sunday night. You can even listen online. I'm glad they included a playlist online and it stated it was "Sacred Mountains" from Jalayan.

Anyways, Jalayan is a four piece Italian space rock group that plays instrumental music that's not unlike Ozric Tentacles, Mantric Muse, Hidria Spacefolk, and Quantum Fantay. Very much that familiar approach of guitar, synths, bass, and drums. I don't know how to quite review this as all the songs pretty much follow a similar template. T/he guitar playing can bring to mind Ed Wynne and the synths like any given Ozric member (like Joie Hinton, Seaweed, even Ed himself). Apparently these guys are professionals (I'm guessing not just as musicians but sound engineers) so these guys are not amateurs, nor are they a bunch of slouches. The only complaint is they may not exactly bring anything new to the space rock table, but it's quality music still the same and I can still highly recommend this,.

Thanks to tapfret for the artist addition.
