Anunnaki – Martyr of Alexandria (2021)

“…once the gothic space-rock bass riff and tortured fuzz of ‘Golden Gate Of The Sun’ starts up, it’s hard to dispel visions of a pair of speed-freak psychonauts locked inside a very dark room, producing lightsucking noise. ‘Cyril The Fanatic’ is another headlong plunge into the void, the filthy chug of a nuclear-powered craft burning a path through the cosmos. But the best track here is the extended ‘Cries Of Hypatia’, ambient feedback and a slow beat joined by a glowering choir of voices, building towards an impressively monumental climax.”


Earthless – Live in the Mojave Desert, Volume 1 (2021)

“Inspired by Pink Floyd’s ‘Live At Pompeii’ the live in the Mojave desert series will showcase some of desert rock’s best in the middle of the California wilderness. Live IN THE Mojave Desert is a livestream concert film series created deep in the deep sand and huge boulders of some insanely beautiful California wilderness, with performances from Earthless, Nebula, Spirit Mother, Mountain Tamer, and Stoner (a new band by Brant Bjork and Nick Oliveri).”


Øresund Space Collective – Relaxing in the Himalayas (2021)

“In 2014, we assembled an amazing line up of clever and inspired musicians to have a few days of jams in the studio. Hasse (Tangle Edge) came down from Norway, Jonathan, KG, Mathias and Alex came down from Stockholm. Jonathan (Camper Van Beethoven, Sista Maj) had been a big fan of ØSC but not played with us before. KG (ex-Siena Root, Palace on Wheels) had joined us before in the studio previously and also live. Mathias (My Brother the Wind) had also played live with ØSC before (on bass) and was a good friend of the band. I had been a big fan and friend with the guys in Gösta Berlings Saga for a few years and thought their drummer Alex would be a great fit. Finally, Jonas (Agusa) and Mats came over from Malmö. Both had played live with the band in the past. The 45min piece you are listening to now, was the first piece of music that we recorded together. Wow.. I hope that you enjoy this.”


Papir – Jams (2021)

“Jamming has always been an essential part of Papir. Jamming in the rehearsal room, jamming in the studio, collectively jamming live and getting in to a common zone of rocking outbursts, ambient soundscapes, repetitive trances or whatever comes through. Sometimes it can just feel like a hard work of even trying to get into the zone. But mostly it’s just good times and fun, and I guess that’s why we do it. It’s all about musical energy!”


Smote – Drommon (2021)

“Summoned from the murkier reaches of the subconscious and summoning a powerful aura of twilight communion, Smote’s ‘Drommon’ is here to intimidate and enchant. The first Rocket release for this enigmatic Newcastle-based entity is no less than a mystically-aligned voyage into abandon and epiphany…Replete with doom-laden atmospherics and crepuscular intensity, this is an intimidating denouement to return to time and again. Join the ritual, and submit to ‘Drommon’.”
