Sungod

“FIRST MATTER represents Sungod’s first recorded excursions into the vastness of the inner space. The sonic forms move from driving 70’s psychedelia to desolate western soundscapes and create a cerebral amalgam of heavy riffs, hypnotic drones, and pulsing rhythms. Captured to analog tape, the nature of the sound is organic, warm and intimate. This quality of the recording, combined with the exploratory nature of the music, make the two-piece’s cosmic collection of improvisations and compositions an ideal soundtrack for the altered mind…”

My Brother the Wind

“My Brother The Wind is a psychedelic rock oriented project formed in Åmål, Sweden in 2009. The band consists of Nicklas Barker (Anekdoten) on guitar, Mathias Danielsson (Makajodama, and formerly of Gösta Berlings Saga) also on guitar, Ronny Eriksson (Magnolia) on bass and Tomas Eriksson on drums. The idea is to record albums out of the blue, totally improvised and with no previous rehearsals…”

Buddha Sentenza – Mode 0909 (2009)

Mode 0909 (2009)

“After a seemingly random sonic collision over the city of Heidelberg in later 2008, the constellation of *Buddha Sentenza* began to form during the darkest hours of that cold and silent winter. Deep under the earth, in the hidden bowels of the Klonlabor tunnel complex, the searing strings and pounding drums condensed rapidly to form a nebulous cloud of loosely jammed, spaced-out, rocking riffs. Rotating freely around some of the most ancient soundscapes – from the astral end of the Pink Floyd to the depths of galaxies such as Black Sabbath – Buddha Sentenza has continued to expand, drawing energy from contemporary constellations as well. Thus, its elements follow the trail of early rock psychonauts and modern riffrockers alike, fusing droning riffs, screaming solos and cosmic harmonies into an instrumental sound experience that defies any strict genre boundaries. The result is a texture that combines the raw massiveness of rock with the infinite possibilities of outer space.”

El Paramo – El Paramo (2008)

El Paramo (2008)

“EL PÁRAMO got independent of an elderly Spanish rock band SOU EDIPO in the beginning of 2005. As a four-piece instrumental rock outfit much influenced by stoner rock, heavy metal, and progressive rock, the founding members – Santi (drums), Macón (guitars), Santi Ventreri (bass), and Jorge (guitars) – could make a great success of their first concert in the end of August 2005 under the slogan of inquiry into Stoner Progressive Rock world, obviously different from ADRIFT, Macón and Jorge’s metal band. In September 2008 EL PÁRAMO finally released their eponymous debut album on Alone Records.”

Samsara Blues Experiment – Long Distance Trip (2010)

Long Distance Trip (2010)

“SAMSARA BLUES EXPERIMENT are a Berlin based band, founded in Summer 2007 by leadguitarist/singer Christian Peters… As the band name implies three elemental aspects are to notice – the blues as the fundament where it all comes from, the inclusion of spiritual influences accompanied by Indian/raga music and the experimental approach to mix up varied elements in a convincing manner. The band’s songs are dominated by a playful dual guitar work as well as a passionate blend of heavy psych, stoner and space rock. This is provided with several nuances and transitions in between – quite retro styled, jamming, even sometimes worked out with a repetitive hypnotic touch in the tradition of krautrock…”

The Vocokesh

“VOCOKESH arrived on the scene in 1989/90 when Wisconsin/US situated Richard Franecki (guitar, bass, electronics) decided to leave his main project F/i along with Jan Schober (drums) and Steve Zimmerman (electronics)… Similiar to F/i, but more guitar and less electronics dominated, the band covers a variety of styles. The sound can be treated as an avantgarde blend of psychedelic and space. This is often based on blues themes and spiked with kraut rock portions here and there… spacey jams with weird experimental parts…”

La Ira de Dios

“The band was founded in 2001 by guitarist Chino Burga. Hailing from Lima/Peru they started as a trio first including bass player Alí and Tito Renteros (drums). Based on a psych/space origin LA IRA DE DIOS developed to a jam band with a heavy, raw and sometimes even violent attitude adding stoner, punk and krautrock elements to their sound…”

Pharaoh Overlord

“Finland’s Pharaoh Overlord take huge rock songs and turn them into minimal trance-inducing drones. Drawing influence from 70’s drug rock like Pink Floyd, Hawkwind and krautrock ala Can and Neu!, their 2nd full length sees them venturing further into the void of repetition and psychedelia. Pharaoh Overlord features members of Circle.”

“Live recordings from June/August 2003 by the trio of Mani Neumeier (drums, percussion), Ax Genrich (guitar), both from 70’s German improv/space rock outfit Guru Guru, and Dave Schmidt (bass) known from Liquid Vision, Zone Six, Sula Bassana & Weltraumstaunen. They jam in the tradition of early Guru Guru and rock out extended instrumental tracks of spontaneously improvised psychedelic spacerock including versions of Guru Guru classics (Stone in, Electric Junk, Next time see you at the Dalai Lhama).”
