4 stars FOLLAKZOID are a Psychedelic band out of Chile and this is studio album number two for this four piece released in 2013. Same lineup as on the debut and both cover arts are among my favourites. I can't say much has changed since the 2009 debut and that's a good thing. For me it's all about their sound as they trip along and jam. Some vocals and they almost speak the lyrics but they are a nice touch. Spacey synths also add to their signature sound.

"Trees" is an uptempo opener with plenty of energy as the vocals come and go. "9" has a catchy beat as vocals arrive after a minute. Synths come and go then some fuzzed out guitar too before 2 1/2 minutes then themes are repeated. "Rio" opens with sounds that echo as drums and bass join in. Distant sounding vocals before 1 1/2 minutes and they are brief. This song trips along at a mid-tempo pace and the vocals come and go.

"99" is more laid back but they amp it up quickly. Vocals join in as they echo. I really like this one. "Pulsar" is the long closer with an intense rhythm section and spacey synths over top. Very repetitive. Guitar too and then they slow it down a notch late. So another consistent album and again it's all about how this sounds for me. It's a pleasure to hear this type of music. A solid 4 stars.
