PSYCHEDELIC/SPACE ROCK

A Progressive Rock Sub-genre

Psychedelic/Space Rock definition

Psychedelic Progressive Rock

Progressive rock music has its roots in the mid 1960's psychedelic cultural phenomena. During that time the British Invasion and folk-rock bands began to expand the sonic possibilities of their music. These groups slowly started to abandon the concise verse-chorus-verse patterns of rock & roll, and moved towards fluid, free-form oriented song structures. Just as important was the incorporation of elements from Indian and Eastern music. Along them the principles of free-form jazz were included to the psychedelic sound, emphasising spontaneous emotions over calculated and estimated compositional constructions. Experimenting with new studio technology, electronically altering instruments and voices, was a part of this altered approach as well. Acid rock groups like THE JIMI HENDRIX EXPERIENCE and CREAM stand as descriptive and popular examples of the path from psychedelic sunshine pop towards a more aggressive and distinct rock expression, in particular showcased in their improvised live performances.

The boundary dividing the "Experimental" and "Progressive" classification is a thin and at times contested one for this era. The pioneering psychedelic progressive rock bands to be found at www.progarchives.com will in most cases be found in the Proto-Prog section of the site. Amongst these pioneering outfits are acts like THE BEATLES, JEFFERSON AIRPLANE AND VANILLA FUDGE. Artists such as PINK FLOYD will not be found there though, as their career extended well beyond these first, formative years.

Psychedelic progressive rock music may contain the elements previously described in varying combinations, but the artistic perspective of progressive rock is another factor. Some psychedelic rock bands stuck to the mid 1960's beat rock style in purist form, not partaking in the experimental development of the impressionistic possibilities of psychedelic rock music others spearheaded. The evolution of the psychedelic depth within a progressive context could be seen for instance in the 1960's recordings of ARCADIUM and BABY GRANDMOTHERS. One good example of early 70's Continental European progressive psychedelic rock is the album by AHORA MAZDA, and from Britain JADE WARRIOR's early efforts fuse psychedelic rock and ethnic music. Current artists exploring the vintage 60's/70's style and sound are acts like THE SPACIOUS MINDS and ACID MOTHER'S TEMPLE.

The entire Western pop culture scene was influenced by the psychedelic culture to some extent, including other prog genres such as Prog Folk. In Germany, artists influenced by the British psychedelic movement formed their own genre called KRAUTROCK. The pioneering early 70's bands in this genre represent the progressive acid rock sound of Germany, experimenting with long instrumental improvisations, emphasizing the use of psychedelic effects and weird electronic sounds. Some examples are artists like AMON DÜÜL, ASH RA TEMPEL, CAN, GÄA, NECRONOMICON and YATHA SIDHRA. The PROGRESSIVE ELECTRONIC style emerged from Krautrock. Some of the most influential artists of this genre, such as TANGERINE DREAM and KLAUS SCHULZE, explored a distinct psychedelic musical style at first, which was influential for the development of the "space rock" sound:


Progressive Space Rock

The late 1960's psychedelic rock scene also spawned the birth of the space rock genre. The pioneering acts of this genre assimilated krautrock elements like repetitive hypnotic beats and electronic/ambient soundscapes as they moved away from the common musical and compositional approach. The synthesizer with its bubbling tones and spacey patterns, provoking a gliding flow, is a typical instrument of this genre. Guitars are by preference played with glissando technique and delay/echo effects are heavily used, and elements originating from reggae/dub are fairly common. Several bands combine their live performances with trippy lightshows using random fractals. Albums in this genre will often include at least one long meandering jam based on a main theme, where loops and wavelike fluctuations provides slight variations to this structural foundation.

Stories, images, song titles and album names referring to cosmic themes are fairly common features of the genre. HAWKWIND's live album "Space Ritual" is said to be the ultimate space rock album due to the collaboration with sci-fi author Michael Moorcock. His lyrics are performed by a narrator and underlaid with synth elements. PINK FLOYD can be regarded as pioneers of spacey music during the band's early phase, as exemplified by certain tracks from "The Piper At The Gates Of Dawn" or the stirring live performance of "Careful With That Axe Eugene" from "Ummagumma". GROBSCHNITT provides another fine example of classic space rock with their epic effort "Solar Music". Other bands explored the space rock sound for a limited time period only. GONG released groundbreaking albums in the genre at the start of their career, while British hard rock band UFO released the extraordinary album "Flying - One Hour Space Rock" as their sole contribution to the genre in 1971.

A space rock scene can be found in most countries sporting artists producing music with a western-oriented or influenced sound. Swedish bands are known for a brisk exchange of musicians among each other. The "Strange Daze" festivals from 1997-2000 showcased the American space rock scene. Japan is an inexhaustible reservoir of artists exploring both psychedelic progressivce rock and progressive space rock. Representative examples of the style are bands such as ORESUND SPACE COLLECTIVE with their focus on long grooving improvisations, QUARKSPACE and OZRIC TENTACLES with their stronger emphasis on electronic elements and VESPERO and HIDRIA SPACEFOLK with their inclusion of ethnic-originating musical components. Other groups like ESCAPADE and THE LEGENDARY PINK DOTS represent an avantgarde approach to the genre, whereas SUBARACHNOID SPACE and KINSKI are examples of artists that provide transitions to the post rock genre.


The boundaries of Psychedelic Progressive Rock connected with Stoner Rock and Acid Folk

The 1960's and 70's were a time of liberation, a time of rebellion against rigid rules and strict moral boundaries. In those "freedom of expression" days, an artist would typically herald their liberal attitudes as a mind-expanding trip on stage together with the audience in two ways. One was to realize audio/visually the visual and auditory hallucination as it was, and another was to play their repertoire spiritually and improvisationally under the trip. As for the latter approach, they devoted themselves solely to slow-to-mid tempo playing with low-tuned guitars in a heavy and expansive manner for playing steadily under this twilight condition. In the same time period, this approach to the musical trip was also taken on by some artists especially in the hard rock and heavy metal scene. This new style, drenched in heavy and downer psychedelia, was called "Stoner Rock". The name originates from the expression "stoned", referring to people in altered states of mind while under the influence of psychedelic substances. The Stoner Rock genre was universalized "as a strict musical style only" by the Industrial Grunge Rock genre that gained worldwide popularity in the early 1990s. The common denominator of all the artists mentioned is the representation of their personal cultural and political backgrounds, whilst playing slow-paced depressive songs with heavy guitars and echoic rumbling drums as the dominating features. Most of current outfits claiming to be the so-called Psychedelic Heavy Progressive Rock ones should be much influenced by the traditional Stoner or Grunge Rock as well as the early Psychedelic Progressive Rock. They can be considered as a borderline case between Psychedelic Progressive, Heavy Progressive, and Progressive Metal.

"Acid Folk" can be mentioned as another musical style with hallucinogenic approach. Psych Folk or Psychedelic Folk are other names for this genre, and is vaguely defined as a rock subgenre due to the mixture of folk rock and psychedelic rock. This is a style lacking in strict definitions, and it is contested whether or not the term was actually used at what is deemed the dawn of the genre. It's an undeniable fact that the Acid Folk scene gained some popularity by the efforts of artists in "The Folk Revivalism", but it's important to remember that there were two distinctly different approaches taken by those who helped shape the genre in the mid 1960's. Some folk singers approached a psychedelic rock structure as was popular at that time, while some psychedelic rock outfits tried to absorb and incorporate techniques and elements from folk rock. Both have great importance in the development of Acid Folk, and this may be the reason that strict definitions of the genre cannot be given. In view of the history, it's no exaggeration to claim that TYRANNOSAURUS REX, SYD BARRETT or THE INCREDIBLE STRING BAND in UK rock scene seasoned the "traditional" Acid Folk with a more progressive spice. They, as eccentric or heretical rock outfits, accepted and incorporated Middle-Eastern and Oriental elements or instruments, and the result was the foundation for the current progressive Acid Folk movement. And in the Eastern parts of the world, different acid streams was provided by artists such as TAJ MAHAL TRAVELLERS or MAGICAL POWER MAKO who exerted a great influence on younger progressive bands. Their amazing achievements resides in the twilight zone between the Prog Folk and Psychedelic Prog subgenres.


A path that never ends

In addition of the styles described, psychedelic elements can be found in many other genres of progressive rock. The psychedelic cultural explosion had an immense influence on the western popular culture, and traces of it can still be heard also outside of progressive rock circles. The collective techno rave parties carry on the legacy of the audiovisual attack from the PINK FLOYD concerts in 1968, to cite one example. As the psychedelic movement was a large cultural phenomenon, it is difficult (and maybe unnecessary) to fence it to a clear category. Psychedelic progressive rock has been developing towards several different directions over time, and the task of classifying them as distinct genres and sub-genres is an ever ongoing process, often loaded with strong opinions. The psychedelic rock artists which are not considered as progressive in style are not listed in the databse of www.Progarchives.com. This in order to maintain the site's scope to be a progressive rock reference.

The aim of this description is to be a tool of reference for potential and existing fans of the genre, and we hope that this will aid those who read it to a better understanding of the genre as well as to enjoy and discuss the subject at hand both in the forums of the Progarchives website as well as in other places online and offline both.

Shum-Shir
Vespero Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by kev rowland
Special Collaborator Crossover Prog Team

4 stars Originally released digitally and on vinyl in 2017, this has now also been released on CD with some additional songs. This is the eighth full-length studio album by Russian band Vespero, and is the second in the 'Abyssinian Tales' series, following on from 2016's 'Lique Mekwas'. Apparently, 'shum-shir" is an ancient Ethiopian ceremony where every ten years the tribal elders and shamans would choose a new Nəgus' (King) for the entire tribe. This took the form of imbibing various drugs and dancing all night, and in the morning they would make the pronouncement. I continue to be impressed with the music coming out of Russia, and these guys are somewhat of a surprise to me as I felt I was fairly well informed, yet they have been around since 2003 and it is the first time I have come across them.

They are an instrumental outfit, with more than a hint of Ozric Tentacles about them, but the violin is more important than woodwind, and percussion more important than either. This is space rock, but they have also taken on many influences from world music and fusion, with the result being an album that is incredibly impressive and inviting, while also not conforming necessarily to what people may expect from the Russian music scene. I just continue to be impressed with the quality and variety of the music coming out from that particular part of the world, and this is yet another unknown (at least to me) outfit that demands further close inspection. Psychedelic, progressive, meandering yet with direction, this is an album that fans of bands such as Ozrics or Gong should be seeking out.

Legacy
Hypnos 69 Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by TenYearsAfter

4 stars My first musical encounter with this Belgian formation was during the interesting Dutch Symforce II Festival in 2008 (organized by Belgian proghead #1 John Bollenberg, unfortunately only 3 editions). Hypnos 69 presented their new (4th) album entitled The Eclectic Measure, in fact their final effort because the band was on the brink of calling it a day. But due to the many positive reactions on their performance and the sales from their albums during that Symforce II Festival, Hypnos 69 decided to continue making progrock and in 2009 the band released this album entitled Legacy. Unfortunately it turned out to be their swansong.

On this fifth CD Hypnos 69 starts with the epic Requiem - For A Dying Creed (around 18 minutes. First a fluent hrythm with sumptuous Hammond organ, fiery guitar runs and strong, a bit raw vocals. Then lots of shifting moods, including powerful saxophone and moving guitar with lush Mellotron. And finally a splendid conclusion featuring a Cry Baby wah-wah drenched guitar solo with awesome Mellotron violins, what a great start! Then five alternating tracks.

King Crimson inspired with propulsive guitar and saxophone in An Aerial Architect.

Dreamy with bluesy guitar and Hammond organ in My Journey To The Stars.

Psychedelic with majestic Mellotron choirs in The Sad Destiny We Lament.

Bombastic and pure rock with swinging saxophone and biting wah-wah guitar in The Empty Hourglass.

Pretty experimental with an avant-garde saxophone sound in Jerusalem.

And finally another epic composition entiled The Great Work (around 18 minutes), a lot happens.

Mellow with Mellotron violins and bluesy guitar to compelling bombastic with Hammond.

Captivating King Crimson-like interplay between Mellotron violins and propulsive electric guitar.

Along parts with flute and saxophone, very interesting but also a bit complex.

To me this album sounds in the vein of their previous effort, but a bit more adventurous, one to discover!

Sleeping Pandora Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by BrufordFreak
Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

— First review of this album —
4 stars Awesome Space/Psychedelic music from Cosmic Fall member Mathias Rosmann. Great sonic textures, song constructions, and instrumental performances throughout. I haven't heard guitar-led psychedelic music this good in a long time.

1. "Shine" (10:52) powerful, diverse, richly layered, with very emotional guitar play. By far the best song on the album. (10/10)

2. "'berschall" (12:18) a more slowed down though continuous soundscape and flow from the previous song. The guitar here is far more bluesy, the bass line a little monotonous. At the end of the sixth minute a kind of Berlin School sequence enters bringing a cool new feel and speed. The heavily-echoed guitar starts getting cooler. At the eight-minute mark some instrumental sounds drop out, creating a more spacious backdrop over which keyboard- synth sequence and computer cymbal play support the screams of the echoed electric guitar. (8/10)

3. "Danube Wave" (11:12) opens with synth wash background, fast-throbbing single-note bass and "hi-hat" lines with MIKE OLDFIELD "Incantations"-like "glass" vibes playing over the top. Wah-ed electric guitar lead supplants the vibes in the second minute as "drum" support increases. At the three minute mark the glass vibes rejoin for a bit, then we're back to electric guitar soloing over the synthesized rhythm section. I must admit that the guitar lead is doing nothing for me; I'm much more interested in the movements in the synthetic background (synth washes, vibes, bass, drums). The guitar begins playing with more percussive echo effects in the sixth and seventh minutes while background drops out. At 7:00 we return to drum-base while guitar resumes soloing, now with that heavy echo interplaying with the wah. The solo actually gains traction and an enjoyable melody line while reminding me of the Randy Bachman solo in "Blue Collar." Nice. (8.5/10)

4. "Cascades" (12:07) a gentle prog electronic foundation opens this song before heavily-effected electric guitar steps in to take on the lead. Very engaging, hypnotic musical base. Things quiet down in the sixth minute so that smooth industrial synth sounds can have a turn while floaty electric piano plays gently from behind the wings (L). Nice section. When the soundscape begins to refill, it is with an insidious force led by guitar and later joined by bass and drums. Guitar soloing ventures into lower octaves in the tenth minute as spacey foundation trudges along. Long, interesting, echo-y two minute deconstruction and "fade out." (9/10)

5. "Going Back" (9:12) opens with a slow but constant two-chord keyboard progression before twangy-electric guitar lead and synth effects join in. The guitar is fairly bare though heavily echoed (as usual) and, shortly, wah pedaled. Those first three minutes were surprisingly boring. A shift into a higher octave refreshes but ultimately fails to save the first half of this song from the realm of "future skip overs." Some subtle sound additions and shifts in the fifth and sixth minutes help, and then when the guitar disappears for a while the syth work and drum sounds are afforded more attention. Guitar returns at 7:00, played much more slowly, each single- or dual-note gaining independent attention. In the end, this is a forgettable song. (7/10)

6. "Space Lane" (11:16) opens with quite familiar Berlin School sounds and constructs before near-Euro-disco bass line and standard drum lines support the searing electric guitar soloing. The soundscape thins in the fifth minute as the bass drops out, isolating the guitar more, but it's not till the 5:20 mark that the guitar really begins to bring it in terms of intensity and emotion. And, at nearly the same time, the rest of the original Euro-disco sounds return, both amplifying and diminishing the guitar's possible effect. Still, we're learning that Mathais' real strength is in his searing, emotional guitar play. Another break from bass and drums at the 8-minute mark, but then the dance floors are made happy again less than 30 seconds later. Nice guitar work/riffs in the final 90 seconds. (9/10)

7. "Beach" (11:27) opens with a striking New Age feel to it--even the sound and style of play used for the lead guitar bespeaks "New Age." A littel more house oriented in the middle section, but I have to admit that by this point in the album I'm getting a little tired of the "Blue Collar" guitar sound. A few nice dynamic shifts disrupt the tedium and give the listener breathing space, a chance for renewed perspective, but ultimately this song needs something more. (8.5/10)

Four stars; a nice contribution to the prog electronic/space music style and an excellent addition to any prog rocker's music collection.

Special Collaborator PSIKE Team & Band Submissions

— First review of this album —
3 stars As a musician and composer you are inspired by other acts of course. And you surely will have a preference on diverse songs in the same way, frequently related to special experiences in everyday life most likely. What sooner or later may lead on to the idea, or even obsession maybe, to re-interprete them according to your taste. Be it just for fun, as a contribution to a gig, sampler or vinyl-only single, or whatever. So now here we have a (first = Volume I) collection of rarities, recorded by Cary Grace over the last decade. This in cooperation with diverse musicians she has been, respectively still is recording as well as playing on live performances with her band. First and foremost to name Andy Budge (bass) and drummer David Payne.

Finally that makes a very personal crossover of rock songs from Bowie to Pink Floyd, Cream to Amon Düül 2 and so on. A singer/songwriter who is focussed on psychedelic space rock, I would say this is not a common affair really. This description relates to her albums in general, and 'Covers Volume I' won't be an exception. Although every track bears some recall value, it sounds different in the same way, sometimes more, sometimes less. For instance, you've got it, quite obvious, a female voice is dominating here. By example Bowie's Black Country Rock or Tales Of Brave Ulysses have turned out very well. Every piece is provided with finesse, worked out with care, taken for granted. This is a really nice collection, culminating into the extended album highlight Fat Old Sun, which shows her preferences quite well. 3.5 stars.

The Weirding
Astra Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by TenYearsAfter

3 stars Five piece band Astra was founded in 2001 under the name Silver Sunshine. In 2004 they released their eponymous debut album on Empyrean Records, followed by the EP entitled A Small Pocket of Pure Spirit in 2005 on the same label. With the departure of original Silver Sunshine drummer Iain Andrew Sclater and the joining of new drummer/multi-instrumentalist David Hurley in 2006, their sound and direction has evolved and grown. At that moment the band not only decided to change their name (into Astra) but also their sound and line-up (new guitarist), Astra now features: Richard Vaughan (guitar, Mellotron and vocals), Conor Riley (guitar, Mellotron, ARP Odyssey synthesizer, organ and vocals), Stuart Sclater (bass guitar), David Hurley (drums, flute and various noisemakers) and Brian Ellis (guitar and Moog synthesizer). In May 2009 Astra released their debut full length album entitled The Weirding on Rise Above Records and a tour in the USA and Europe is one of their future plans.

In fact Astra their music is simply structured, to me most of the eight compositions even sound like extended jam- sessions: the musicians let the three guitars and the vintage keyboards speak, this makes listening to The Weirding to a very compelling musical experience, often I am carried away to Space Rock Heaven! The special element in Astra their sound is the fact that all of the three guitarists play vintage keyboards, we can even enjoy a double-Mellotron sound. Especially in the two epics The Weirding (first brass ? and violin section and in the end brass ? and flute section) and Ouroboros (lots of violin ? and choir-sections sounds). The interplay between the distinctive sound of the Mellotrons and the moving work on the guitars evoked many times goose bumps! The final composition Beyond To Slight The Maze delivers exciting work on Mellotron (again), Moog and especially the Hammond organ. This culminates in a breathtaking grand finale with majestic choir-Mellotron, soaring Hammond organ and fat Moog synthesizer flights, what a mighty musical experience! The short song Broken Glass is a bit of a maverick because of the acoustic guitars, beautifully blended with warm vocals and the sound of the flute ? and violin section of the Mellotron. But in general the atmospheres shift from dreamy and spacey to bombastic and from slow and hypnotizing rhythms to heavy eruptions. Often early Pink Floyd (Pompeii-Meddle era), Seventies German Progrock (melodic and emotional) and some Black Sabbath (vocals and heavy rhythm-section, mainly in the titletrack) come to my mind.

Recommended to Tron-Maniacs and space rock freaks, my rating: 3,5 star.

Nocturnal Transmission
Brotherhood Of The Machine Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

— First review of this album —
4 stars "Nocturnal Transmission" is a 31 minute EP from these Electronic wizards from the UK. Hopefully they are getting better weather than we are here in Ontario. I've never seen schools closed and buses cancelled this late in April before. I'm home because I was stuck in my driveway. This is their latest EP and one that has really impressed me over the last month or so. I like the variety on this one as well.

"Nocturnal Transmissions" opens with faint sounds then we can hear a phone ringing before the sax arrives in atmosphere. This continues throughout and it works. "Deus Ex Machina" features the sound of seagulls and waves as electronics arrives and buzzes away and synths sweep in over top. The synths stop as the tempo picks up and drums join in. The synths are back. Great sounding track.

"Ketamine Dream Machine" opens with growling synths and windy sounds that blow across the soundscape. Some dissonant sax too comes in over top. A change before 3 minutes as the sax leaves and electronics, synths and drums lead the way. It's kind of catchy after 4 minutes with the beats and growly synths.

"Aurora" is the longest track at 10 1/2 minutes. It's kind of eerie sounding and dark throughout. It settles back after 5 1/2 minutes but it's still haunting as we get percussion and atmosphere. Love the choir-like sounds 7 1/2 minutes in. "Blues For Pluto" starts out with spacey winds before piano and atmosphere take over. I like this it's different. Drums join in as well. Quite the moving piece for me.

A solid 4 stars and a great place to start if you want to check out their sound. Better yet, their album "Trip Hazard" is an incredible recording.

Dark Shadows
Cold Sun Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by Mellotron Storm
Prog Reviewer

4 stars It's been a while since I've been so intrigued with an album like this one. My first listen was bizarre as all I knew was that this was released in 1989 and it was a Psychedelic record. Bizarre because the vocals and fuzzed out guitar sounded straight out of 1968 or 1969. I felt like I had discovered something special here and after doing some research I found out that this was originally recorded in 1969 but the record label went bankrupt leaving this on the shelf until Rockadelic Records picked it up and released it 20 years later. That answered some questions I had. COLD SUN was the project of Bill Miller who plays an electric autoharp here along with harmonica and sings. This band was from Austin, Texas the home of the 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS. That band's leader Roky Erickson would hook up with Bill Miller later on in Roky's band called ROKY ERICKSON AND THE ALIENS who released two great albums in the early eighties.

There's some dispute with the release date of "Dark Shadows" as Discogs has it at 1993 and many point to a magazine interview where it says Rockadelic Records discovered this album in 1991 and released it the following year. I feel 1989 is right along with RYM because on the Rockadelic web-site it has their releases by catalogue number in order and it had to be 1989 unless they were in the habit of giving catalogue numbers then not releasing the album for a few years. I'm going with 1989. I have the 2008 re-issue which sounds a lot better apparently. Interesting that the 13TH FLOOR ELEVATORS were known for that electric jug while COLD SUN was known for that electric autoharp. This is a dark and moody album including the lyrics that are so well done. By the way COLD SUN originally had the 13tH FLOOR ELEVATORS drummer but he left before the recording of this record.

"South Texas" is a great opener and I really dig the lyrics, especially talking about the gecko and paranoia. The fuzzed out guitar and autoharp are outstanding and check it out before 2 minutes as it's like the sun has come out making the darkness flee briefly. So cool. Harmonica after 3 1/2 minutes then more fuzzed out guitar late. A nice start. "Twisted Flower" is another excellent track and it opens with percussion and bass as it builds. Kind of a DOORS feel with the guitar then the vocals arrive before a minute. I really liked this right from the first listen. The guitar and autoharp sound incredible here.

"Here In The Year" is probably my favourite song on here. Again the lyrics are so well done. Drums, bass and autoharp to start as vocals join in. It's surprising how much he sounds like Bob Dylan on this song at times. How good does this sound just before 2 minutes as it changes slightly. So good! Suddenly we get chaos before 3 minutes as they rip it up. Back to the vocals before 3 1/2 minutes as the guitar solos over top. Insanity again after 5 1/2 minutes as we get another freak-out. It settles back again along with droning autoharp sounds, a beat and more.

"For Ever" is an uptempo track with desperate sounding vocals and we get backing vocals too. I like the guitar too then we get a change 1 1/2 minutes in sounding like Zappa's debut to me, especially again late. In between we get an explosion of sound 3 minutes in. "See What You Cause" is a catchy vocal led track with drums and bass supporting. Too straight forward for my tastes although I like it especially the fuzzed out guitar late.

"Fall" opens with drums as harmonica, guitar, bass and autoharp join in. Great lyrics again. It settles after 2 minutes then it kicks in with vocals. Fuzzed out guitar after 3 1/2 minutes and an urgent sound with vocals. Pulsating keys late in this dramatic instrumental conclusion. "Ra-Ma" ends it and it's the longest at 11 1/2 minutes. Beats and cymbals as it builds. It calms right down a minute in with vocals and more. It picks right back up with vocals. Another calm after 3 minutes as the tempo continues to change. It settles with harmonica and vocals before 5 minutes. Some grinding fuzzed out guitar follows. An interesting sound late without vocals to end it.

I agree with Damo that this would be considered a classic and a pioneer album had it been released back in 1969 or 1970 when it was recorded. A very solid 4 stars and the album cover is really well done.

3 stars "The Golden Voyage To Samarkand" is a 17 1/2 minute EP and one long song. I really like the idea behind this and the cover art here gives us a glimpse of part of that journey. I feel the start and some other sections are great for the imagination, trying to picture and feel what this long trip was like. Unfortunately I also feel there's sections that don't seem to fit this idea at all. Maybe I was spoiled starting with their second studio album "Trip Hazard" which blew me away. Expectations were high I'll admit but I really feel this is a mixed bag when it comes to my personal taste in music and Electronics.

I like the start as we get almost a buzzing sound with that atmosphere as a beat joins in then spoken words giving us some brief narration. It's hot. A minute in the beat stops as atmosphere dominates very briefly before a new sound with drums and Arabic sounding synths takes over. Sequencers join in before 2 minutes and the tempo speeds up. Sounds like bass sequencers if there is such a thing. I'm pretty sure I hear sleigh bells too, in the desert? It all stops abruptly 4 minutes in as we get wind and hand percussion. Synths start to swell as another beat joins in. Other synths arrive 5 minutes in. Sounds like a melancholic flute as well. I like this section.

Sequencers take over after 8 minutes as the previous soundscape ends. This is fuller with lots of synths and electronics and a catchy beat. Another calm before 9 1/2 minutes as beats and what sounds like melancholic flute arrives. Sequencers are back before 10 1/2 minutes. Some experimental sounding synths I believe that are high pitched join in before 11 1/2 minutes as the sequencers continue. A calm after 12 minutes then these Arabic sounding synths that are loud take over with beats and more. A change after 15 minutes as we get a calm then the sequencers return. Drums follows.

Most reviewers seem to like this EP more than I do so there's that, but for me 3 stars is just right. If your into Electronics you really need to check this band out.

Jonathan's Dive
Edgar's Hair Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by raigor

5 stars "Jonathan's Dive" is a debut album of the Leiden/Rotterdam, The Netherlands based three-piece band EDGAR'S HAIR featuring Hans Brussee (guitars, vocals, trumpet, moog taurus, stylophone, organ, theremin), Leon van der Leer (drums, percussion, xylophone, backing vocals, moog taurus, moog prodigy, sitar) and Leo Zwaan (bass, backing vocals) - who are assisted by four guesting musicians providing winds, percussion, violins, and piano, as well as two female vocalists and seven readers-narrators.

Self-released for the Clear Spot Int. distribution in the formats of 2LP/2CD/MC, "Jonathan's Dive" is not your average conceptual prog-rock epic. This is literally a 93-minute audio-visual soundtrack-screening to the iconic fable "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" by Richard Bach. The original structure of the book - four parts, three of which were first published in 1970 while the fourth part was added in 2014 - are carefully preserved in the album. It's interesting that "Jonathan Livingston Seagull" was first cinematized in 1974, and the soundtrack for the film was written by Neil Diamond. However, EDGAR'S HAIR have absolutely different and original vision of the Bach's bestseller.

They offer complex and dramatic, highly nuanced and detailed, multi-leveled and poly-stylistic, yet very cinematic in its nature music with extended instrumental passages interweaving various Progressive, Experimental, Fusion, Psychedelic, Neoclassical and Worldmusic trends. The dramatic focus in on the internal fragility and vulnerability of a human to the challenges of life. It explains the titles of the four album parts: "Awareness", "Conflict", "Succeeding" и "Emptiness". Each album's part takes a side of the 2LP edition and reflects a particular part of the book. The music is generally unclassifiable in traditional categories. It can be described as Experimental-Prog, Post-Jazz, Neo-Kraut- Psychedelia but the most adequate definition would be Cinematic-Rock which absorbs a variety of influences, and utilize particular stylistic elements to create a specific dramatic character. The authors stress that no samples and no loops were used in creating the musical content. Each track on this album including pure ambient pastoral soundscapes - there are totally 13 pieces on the album - can evoke very personal associations which can vary from listener to listener.

Overall, EDGAR'S HAIR's debut album is grandiose and majestic work. The only problem with it is that in order to understand it properly you'll have to listen to it from the beginning to the end at once, and one single listening is definitely not enough to catch all nuances and feel overwhelming beauty of the album. Highly recommended for lovers of inventive Modern-Rock beyond the trends.

AcidoXodicA
Unimother 27 Psychedelic/Space Rock

Review by raigor

— First review of this album —
4 stars Launched in 2006, UNIMOTHER 27 is the solo-project, mostly one-man-band by a composer and multi-instrumentalist from Pescara, Piero Ranalli who is also known as a bassist for the bands INSIDER and AREKNAMÃ?S.

"AcidoXodicA" is the sixth album of UNIMOTHER 27. It was recorded and produced in May-August 2017 in Ranalli's own Pineal Gland Lab studio. This is the second album in the project's discography where Ranalli is assisted by mysterious Mr. Fist who plays minimalist acoustic percussions in a "krauty" style and lays the groundwork for Ranalli's heavy-acid-guitar soloing and synth-space manipulations.

The album presents rather heavy, dark, futuristic, and all instrumental music that blends together Acid-Psyche, Experimental-Kraut, and even Desert-Stoner trends. The center point of all seven compositions is overloaded and fuzzy acid-guitar solo-improvisation which is always quite impressive. The synthesized ambient-drone textures throughout the album are rather ascetic and minimalist. There are no diving into long abstract electronic trans-space- meditations and no voice manipulations on this album. The overall sound is well produced, dense and loud.

"AcidoXodicA" is arguably the most effective and focused recording of UNIMOTHER 27 to date. If you like Heavy-Psyche music in general, or just wonder how "electro-acoustic" version of Heavy-Psyche can sound - check it out.
