Speck – Eine gute Reise (2023)

“In a unique interplay, SPECK combines the repetitive, driving character of Krautrock and the boundless, psychedelic sound spectacles of space rock – and goes one step further: with a lot of energy, dynamics and unexpected twists. The band’s sound is now more mature, more sophisticated, richer. This time it was deliberately recorded in complete home direction. Sounds have been created that may sound familiar at first glance, but now also make clear many things that were previously hidden. You can hear the swinging of the skins, feel the motor skills of the bass, anticipate the step on the wah pedal and the energy that is bundled and released. The many layers of the guitar open like a pompous fan. While the bass envelops the room in unobtrusive analogue warmth as before, it is above all the drums that make the quantum leap in sound clear. On their latest record, SPECK create a cosmic soundscape with their glorious repetitions and a 3D backdrop, on which it is wonderful to cavort.”


Kanoi & KRPL – Geierspeis (2023)

“”Geierspeis” is a musical aviary where birds of a feather flock together with cosmic vibrations. Let the harmonies lift your spirits, the rhythms set your wings in motion, and the melodies guide you through the vast expanse of space. So spread your wings, join the chorus, and embark on an unforgettable feathered voyage with “Geierspeis” by Kanoi & KRPL. It’s a beak-tastic experience you won’t want to miss!”


Ryte – Ryte (2020)

“Since day one, the band’s goal was to play sophisticated, mostly instrumental Heavy Psych with little hints of classic Prog, Space Rock, Doom and plenty of other stuff. Speaking of influences, the band is not limited by any means as long as it sounds fresh and interesting and does the band’s initial idea of adventurous heaviness justice.”


Interkosmos – Interkosmos (2009)

“INTERKOSMOS are another Sula Bassana side project which formed in early 2008. According to the band name they call themselves the new intergalactic psychedelic space jam band… INTERKOSMOS meet from time to time to participate on festivals without having a very solid structure. The project have produced one eponymous album in 2009 which is full of spacey improviations headed by Ceballos’ fantastic guitar work.”
