4 stars Already knocked out by kinda Krautrock-ish dry-fruity dissonance and eccentrically colourful sound vineyard, TRIP LAVA aka Joel LEE, my progressive rock mate and a fascinating psychedelic sound generator, has finally released his newest album 'Ounds' in the summer of 2018. Assumed his crazy soundscape would drive me crazy, and it's not wrong at all. Look at the bizarre sleeve that should mean he can launch kaleidoscopic sound world view, methinks.

The first titled strike is such a killa. Distorted, oddball electronic madness sounds rather clean and fresh for me. "Ouseh Of Orsmirr' is another pleasure of mine, that is filled with enjoyable, addictive electronic wave reminding me of authentic Krautrock voyagers like Neu! and so on. Sincere rhythmic stuff attacks my organ directly. Hallucinogenic repetitive endeavour can be heard via the following track "Orf Ontrastc'. Mystic acoustic sound dissection and melodic concentration 'Ongadays' might relax me for a while eventually.

"Oopl De Oopl' is my favourite stuff really, where mad experiments happens one after another, only with simple guitar-based synthesizer sounds. This one sounds leaning towards Manuel G'ttsching's 'Inventions For Electric Guitar' for me and notifies me Joel has opened a novel, innovative 'earsight' up. From the opening until the end 'Ounds Pt. 2' suitable for the epilogue, this fascinating creation should let me say cheers for Joel the multi-instrumentalist and psychedelic adventurer.
