4 stars A comfortable space rock from Russia.

A Russian act Ciolkowska have been active since 2014 for launching their own space rock products. This album "Психоделия (Psychedelia)" released in 2020 represents decent space rock leaning towards an authority Hawkwind, and guitar-oriented dissonant but pleasant sound compote, just as the title says. Colourful mind-friendly sound architecture, with Russian folksy texture here and there (at least upon my ear), is quite accomplished and technically organized. Beautiful, acceptable melody lines are merged with serious, discordantly harmonized construction. Well of course, I'd like you to listen to this stuff enough with relaxing yourself at first.

To illustrate the musical point above mentioned, please let me recommend the first shot "Клей (Glue)" filled with uptempo comfortable psychic, psychedelic agency plus somewhat eccentricity and discrepancy. Via this melodic mixture you will be driven into another higher dimension. The quartet-oriented dreamy artistic delivery is  full of expectation. On the other hand, "Махавишну (Mohavishnu)" brings about gentle, mellow melody figure like a quiet green lake. Their spacey appearance should be consistent but atmospheric kaleidoscopes via every content of theirs are enchanting from the beginning to the very end.

Worth listening to this fantasy not only for psych / space fans but also for all of progressive rock followers.
