excellent find, Svetonio! Clap
tricky compositions - their debut is progressive rock in the purest form, featuring prominent psych/space elements.
The band are producing a vintage sound, also offering jazzy respectiviely eclectic tendencies.
A new candidate for my review list, that was immediately obvious after the first round! Smile

Let me chime in...

Thanks Svetonio for starting this thread.

I intend to stick around here because of the music and people.

This place is like something I have been searching for all the time. People who appreciate and share good music.

We are in the process of thinking wheter to publish vinyl by ourselves or find a label.

But this isn't the last of us, you can be sure about it Wink

Wow, they sound terrific!

Lizard fellas, any chance you're going to put this album out on CD as well?

(I noticed above you're hoping for a vinyl release at some point)

CD is in the process of negotiation.

We are going for replicated cds from glassmasters so we have to arrange some things with the company that is doing it for us.

It is a little bit more complicated when you're self releasing it.

All good! Do please keep us updated on both a CD and/or vinyl release in here! Very impressive album, and there's already several members on here who've been won over by it. Best of luck!

Thanks!

And also, I would like to thank Lear's Fool & Argonaught for the reviews!

I am really glad that you like our music!

We'll keep it coming.

And when you listen to the vinyl in hi fi environment, you will hear many strange sounds which we even forgot that were recorded :)

I hear something new every day.Smile

Unfortunately, we were only able to produce pro-duplicated jewel-boxed, sealed CD-R.

We almost closed a deal for original CDs, but then we found out that we had to pay to a national copyright agency, register our album in their database, buy barcodes and pay tax.

It was a deal breaker cause the price has risen 40% above expected.

So we took DDP image files we got from our mastering studio and took them to the same company and instead of glassmaster CDs we made CD-R replicas with offset printed cover art.

I must say that the CD has the higher quality sound than digital download.

I am wondering how do the master tapes sound, but I don't have the guts to play them before they are cut into vinyl.

Here's a CD thread:

I am also willing to trade a CD for a review Wink

Some pics from our last gig.
They're pretty good.
The tree light is also part of our stage props. My friend made it.
