Elder – The Gold & Silver Sessions (2019)

“Capturing Elder’s expanding dynamic and ongoing progression, The Gold & Silver Sessions is an experimental LP of ranging psychedelic jams that captures their expressive and nuanced development in a way a “regular” studio release wouldn’t. This is still the band who put out 2017’s crushing “Reflections of a Floating World,” but here you’ll witness them following their imaginations in an entirely new direction.”

Centralstödet

“Centralstödet is essentially a live band, and it’s in this setting that their fire burns brightest. The band clearly hasn’t been sitting on their hands since we last saw them, as these recordings indicate a marked refinement of technique and a vivid expansion of the fundamental Centralstödet sound into new and exciting psychedelic territory. Loops and overloaded echo unit sound bounce around the stage during and between cuts, and the signature mountain troll stomp carved out on Solkurva by the rhythm section of Joni Huttunen and Jonas Fridlund is leavened by the band’s sense of deeply woven inter-connectivity.”

Kandodo / McBain – Lost Chants / Last Chance (2016)

“A meeting of like minds surfing the sonic highways to tonal oblivion. These four castaways on Sonic Island have delivered an album that evokes the long lost and revered genre “Drug-Rock” a true mind melt of acid abandonment! Tab-era Monster Magnet, Sessions Era-The Heads—purely visceral and pummelling workouts of a krautrock and pschedelische.”

Bandcamp

Kanaan

“Oslo based trio Kanaan quickly established themselves as one of the most important groups in the youngest generation of psychedelic impro-rockers. As accomplished players – all three educated in jazz – they marry fiery energy with musical intricacy, and possess a rare ability to balance power and delicateness. They devote as much energy to exploring airiness and atmosphere as they do to intensity.”
