Causa Sui biography
In the late summer of 2004, CAUSA SUI were formed with four players, each of whom had gained his enough experience in his own hardcore metal band. With cringing at Danish pop music scene in those days, they all groped for playing progressive and experimental music, and conclusively found they should play heavy psychedelic and stoner rock they had never lost the desire to make their style with.

CAUSA SUI, getting started as a four-piece band, produced their eponymous debut album through the summer of 2005 with 100 demo tracks and Nasomi Records gave the green light for releasing it in December of the same year. Their musical style is influenced by not only psychedelic rock or Krautrock, but also 60s rock, blues, or 70s heavy metal, etc. etc.

After releasing their second album 'Free Ride' for various reasons CAUSA SUI got to be a trio consisting of Jakob Skøtt (drums and percussion), Jess Kahr (bass) and Jonas Munk (guitars, keyboards, electronics and vocals) - in spite of the musicians decreased, CAUSA SUI now can keep their motivation and activity with giving some gigs and releasing some session albums.

Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by DrömmarenAdrian

4 stars Heavy music from Denmark arrives!

Here in Sweden, we had a (kind of) psychedelic rock band called "Träd, gräs och stenar". I like their heavyness and their ambling swing but I find the music too monotonous and amateurish. This record has the same heavyness and the same wandering rocking but also professionality and amazing details to enjoy.

Causa Sui was formed 2004 and has until now released eight records and this is the last one, yet not reviewed. A simpe but strong artwork gives the first impression. The members of Causa Sui are Jonas Munk(guitars, keyboards and electronics), Jess Kahr(bass) and Jakob Skött(drums and percussion). Unfortunately there's no singing here, I would have loved that.

I would call this an even record. The particular sound could be heard over the whole record and we hear both melodical and more atmospheric pieces. My favourite is the first one: "Homage" which is an explosion of musical power. Causa Sui contains gigantic organ sounds and pure psychedelic rock. "Boozehound" is also a marvolous track where a specific theme returns some times and "Mireille" is the album's second best, where I think you'd hear the clearest melody, still in the heavy groove. "Ju-ju Blues" is also worth mentioning such as the title track "Euporie" which is more monotonous but still a soundscape with perfection.

What I like with this record "Euporie Tide" by Causa Sui is that it feels very real. There's no modern pop rhytms or artificial crap but just amazing rock. I really miss some form of vocals but still very good music. Recommended!

Summer Sessions Vol. 3
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Warthur
Prog Reviewer

3 stars Causa Sui make a case for their status as the Kyuss of Denmark with the third volume of their Summer Sessions releases. This series of albums consists of instrumental material culled from the band's jam sessions, which run the gamut from airy spacey psychedelic drifting to crunchy stoner rock. This time around, the album tends to err towards the spacier end of the group's sound except for on Red Valley, which essentially a Kyuss pastiche (right down to the name being a mashup of elements from Blues For the Red Sun and Welcome to Sky Valley). Enjoyable, but I can't say it's essential listening.

Summer Sessions Vol. 3
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Johny Sartre

5 stars The Summer Sessions are a set of three instrumental albums recorded in jamming sessions, although sometimes the music seems quite structured. The previous volumes are very good and worth listening(I rated them 4 stars), being the first a more spacey album and the second a heavier stoner rock complemented by a great saxophone playing, making it more jazzy. However Vol. 3 is a truly masterpiece of progressive and psychedelic music. Its the perfect closer to the Summer Sessions. If you are a fan of psychedelic and space rock it's impossible not liking it. The only downside of this album is that its too short. Only 33 minutes of such good music leaves you wanting much more. I almost rated it 4 stars because of that, but in the end I surrendered to it's geniality.

The album opens with "Eugenie". It starts with a spacey eguitar riff and develops with background keyboard and saxophone playing. The stoner rock guitar combines perfectly with the sax and the song ends with a great heavy guitar riff that accelerates with the bass and the drum while the sax keep soloing. Amazing song.

In "Red Valley" the sax and the keyboards go out and the show is left to the guitars. It also starts with a spacey guitar riff that suddenly turns with one guitar playing hard/stoner rock and the other soloing, sometimes with an effect of wind in the background that gives it a very stoner tone.

Side B is called "Manifestations of Summer" and it comprises three songs. It's the peak of all Summer Sessions.

"Lonesome Traveler" is the most spacey and progressive song on the album with the mellotron on the background fitting perfectly with the spacey riffs. Very trippy song.

"Santa Sangre" opens with very rythmic bass drumming while the guittar goes along with it, while another guitar does some spacey effects. But then the sax comes back more furious than before with amazing soloing and the drummer as furious as the sax makes his show. Spacey riffs are played shortly and the song fades to a lesser volume with the drums highlighted while the bass and some guitar and percussion effects are on the background. The song goes on a crescendo and when the sax returns soloing it accelerates towards the end just like "Eugenie", fading with wind sound linking it to the last song.

And finally "Venice at Sea" is the perfect closing song with a beautiful sea mood. It really translates the essence of the sea into music. I mean if you close your eyes while listening to it you can clearly see and listen to the waves. As a person who lives by the sea this song is very emotional to me. The guitar playing is psychedelic and beautiful. I don't know if music can be classified as beautiful, but I don't have any other word. It's aesthetically beautiful, you really can see colours and the sound waves. The spacey guitar is joined by the mellotron, wind sounds and backing vocals. Definitely my favourite part of the album and of whole Summer Sessions.

This album can be considere a masterpiece for those who really like psychedelic and space music and thats why I rated it 5 stars.

Summer Sessions Vol. 3
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by freyacat

5 stars The Summer Sessions are something special. Far from being aimless jams, these are multi-layered compositions which reward repeated listening. The sound textures are drawn from the 60's and 70's, the most vital era of rock. Each Volume has its own character. While Volume 1 reminds us of Black Sabbath at their most progressive, Volume 2 adds an ecstatic layer of saxophone, making the competing melodies mindblowing. At times, it reminds one of Miles Davis' Electric band around the Jack Johnson era. Volume 3, I would argue, is the most thematically cohesive of the set. All of the compositions seems to be different variations on a basic melodic structure. The opening section of "Manifestations of Summer," "Lonely Traveller," is perhaps the most beautiful moment in the whole Summer Sessions. A poignant guitar riff interplays with a mellotron flute in a breathtaking melodic counterpoint that makes you think this is a lost Jefferson Airplane masterpiece, or perhaps an alternate reality in which Tony Iommi has joined the Moody Blues.

The lack of vocals on these recordings contributes to their fascination. They are sufficiently abstract to draw the listener into their mystery, and yet they "rock" in a way that brings the body into the listening experience.

I give this volume, and the whole set, five stars, because no one has done anything like this, and this is a significant and widely overlooked contribution to progressive music.

Summer Sessions Vol. 2
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Astryos

4 stars Causa Sui's first two albums were odes to psychedelic hard/stoner rock. "Summer Sessions Vol. 2" is their forth release, the second of three in a row, in which this earnest dannish band plays psychedelic rock with a more progressive feeling. This is because "SSV2" is an instrumental album that sounds more like a disciplined jam where lengthy solos of guitar and saxophone over hard rock influenced riffs create a psychedelic, kraut-y and spacey atmosphere. The rhythm section is great with a busy bass and there are beautiful guitar and keyboard parts all over. The songs are rocking while the music mountains and valleys follow each other in a balanced way. Apart from the top musicianship, the production is excellent and you could call their sound "retro-rock". This is an album that I recommend to any progressive (hard) rock or stoner rock lover and - I dare guess - to friends of Hawkwind, Agitation Free, Omar Rodriguez Lopez or even Pelican. Causa Sui's three Summer Sessions volumes are also released in 3 CD and LP packages.

Summer Sessions Vol. 1
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Prog-jester
Prog Reviewer

4 stars This is CAUSA SUI's first fully instrumental album, based mostly on jams. It's good they gave up singing - it's not like they were lame in it, it was just quite another band when they had vocals. Now they sound much better, I tend to think.

CAUSA SUI delivers 48 minutes of pure eargasmic bliss on "Summer Sessions, vol.1". Imagine a cocktail from old Psychedelic Rock, Art Rock, Krautrock, Jazz Rock, Hard Rock, deeply rooted in jammy and improvised music, but never lacking structure or direction! Analog keyboards, fuzzy guitars, groovy rhythm-section - what can be better for anyone who is tired of regressive and pompous contemporary Prog? Begin your trip with vol.1 and don't forget to check vol.2 and 3 too - I don't know what to write about them, they are all the same way beautiful! Highly recommended

Summer Sessions Vol. 1
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Rivertree
Special Collaborator Psych/Space Team & Band Submissions

4 stars Originally CAUSA SUI are more hailing from the stoner rock realm. They produced two studio albums until the decision came up to take a step to something more loose and experimental. They recorded hours and hours of free jams, less structured songs, quite different in style - however - besides several krautrock and jazz rock/fusion traces the preference on psychedelic/spacey sounds is obvious. The essence of this improvisational excursions was put on three different albums entitled 'Summer Sessions' up to now - each released by German Elektrohasch label on vinyl in a limited edition of 500 copies.

Occupying one LP side all alone Visions Of Summer is an incredible session. Initiated by a spacey intro reduced on synth and percussion this is mostly fusion oriented as for the rhythmic fundament but also provided with a special hypnotic/repetitive behaviour - little by little escalating to heavier stoner impressions. Even Jimi Hendrix reminiscences are shimmering through here and there. The fallback will come soon to a relaxed approach with a bunch of spacey guitar, organ, electronics - all skillfully played by Jonas Munk. This is partially rather warm, gently grooving - excellent!

And it's nearly the same with Red Sun In June, the first song of the flipside. The emphasis is more on multiple guitar layers though - really soaring when the jam is escalating in between. Twittering synths are leading over to the next song Portixeddu where the title seems to be derivated from a Sardinian origin. This obviously works in the vein of Soft Machine featuring Allan Holdsworth. Clearly an intensive jazz rock outfit - also reminding me of Santana's proggy times - later decorated with contributions by guest sax player Johan Riedenlow.

Soledad starts really dreamy spacey as for the contrary - nice guitar work once more. But then the band changes to a heavier stoner mood again which fashions the middle section of the song. Comprising different styles 'Summer Sessions Vol. 1' is a fantastic atmospheric album in it's entirety for someone who loves well-elaborated jam sessions - 4.5 stars.

Free Ride
Causa Sui Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Astryos

4 stars Although I wouldn't say that this is strictly a Progressive Rock album, I am happy that I've found a group that plays this heavy, honest, manly, trippy kind of riff-based hard rock. If labels are sometimes necessary, I'd say that Causa Sui is more of a Psychedelic Stoner Rock group. A similar contemporary group that pops in mind is Monster Magnet. But "Free Ride" is slightly different: there are moments that you'd swear this is a recording from a live performance at the Fillmore East back in 1971. And indeed, "Free Ride" sounds like a live album. So, if you love extended in-your-face jams that you've heard in albums like James Gang's "In Concert", Cream's "Live", Grand Funk's "Live Album", Mountain's "Live" or Humble Pie's "Performance", this might be a revelation to you! In "White Sun" there are passages that could be Tony Iommi's riffing, while the extended wah- wah guitar solo in "Newborn Road" towers to a phrase similar to Jimi Hendrix's "Machine Gun" pyrotechnics. On the other hand, the first track "Free Ride" takes you back in time with its acoustic guitars, background reverb effects, double voices, organ and tambourine, while "Flowers Of Eventide" is a short dreamy acoustic instrumental with a guitar sound similar to Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home" and the addition of some beautiful distorted distant flute lines. Everything is perfectly balanced and in step here: The singer's attitude, the instruments' sound, the mood, the whole production. This is a great album and I would recommend it to any hard, stoner, blues, psychedelic or heavy prog rock lover.
