3 stars 'For The Moment' is a prominent psychedelic/space excursion, delivered by this Finnish band. Recorded at the local G Livelab in Helsinki. It took place early 2020, so when the world was still fine. Eh, relatively of course, at least when it comes to the opportunity to play and attend live gigs. Well, those were the days. 'Vol. 1' consequently says, that this is not the end of the story, something will follow. Four songs are given, all of them with nearly the same length of around ten minutes. Suitable for a vinyl release, isn't it? So far anyway this is solely available as a digital download from their bandcamp page. 'For The Moment', the title is well chosen, as the music seemingly comes out of the nowhere. Three out of the four are totally improvised, capturing them at their purest and most jamming moments.

Solely Rainbow is adapted from the current 2018 studio album, showing some nice dual guitar interplay with a slight Allman Brothers Band touch. Magic keyboards, proper groove alternates with melancholic flow. Several jazzy moments, frequently due to Olavi Töyli's saxophone presence, who already had a guest appearance on 'All Will Be Golden'. Even some vocals are given, though very restrained in general. Predominantly they let the instruments speak. If you are keen on inspired live gigs with psychedelic/space character this is worth the check. 3.5 stars.
