3rd Ear Experience

“3RD EAR EXPERIENCE is a new genuine space rock band recording musical improvisations in a little studio situated out in the highlands of Joshua Tree/Mojave Desert, just where some of the members live… Three days of free form jams led on to the self-released debut album ‘Peacock Black’ which is comprised of four extended tracks. At times being courageously experimental they abandoned formal arrangements and allowed the music to flow in a cosmic sonic dialogue between fellow musicians and stargazers. The result is summing up trance-like and groovy excursions, Kosmische Musik in the Berlin School vein as well as dramatic and otherwordly moments.”

Mythic Sunship

“With a band name mingled from album titles by John Coltrane and Sun Ra one might expect Mythic Sunship to be jazz band. However, this is not quite the case, although the Copenhagen quartet shares a similar sense of exploration and general untamedness with that of the two masters of cosmic jazz. The destination is transcendence alright, but the vehicle, ultimately, is assembled from decades of ROCK… where ferocious drum-pounding and thick, Geezery basslines adds fuel to an endless pyre of blazed-out dual fuzz guitar action. This stuff is wild.”

Dhidalah

“The history of heavy psychedelic music has been always lead by trios, such as The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Blue Cheer, Ash Ra Tempel, Sleep, Earthless, etc… In 2016, Japan has Dhidalah, a roaring psychedelic doom trio. The group’s name comes from the mythological giant Daidarabotchi, which was believed to create mountains and land with its enormous size, much like Dhidalah’s sound. Give yourself up to their cosmic jam, and feel yourself float around in space. Their sudden, crashing waves of sound will surely turn you to cosmic dust.”

Cosmic Travelers – Live! (1972)

Live! (1972)

“Sizzling full steam ahead with razzle dazzle jams that expertly bind together blues, soul, funk and hard driving rock and roll into a single file, the Cosmic Travelers are on fire each and every galloping groove of the way. The interplay between the musicians is absolutely stunning, as they are simultaneously loose and tight. Securely grounded, but raw and spontaneous, the Cosmic Travelers speak the same language, as they swap and blend licks in an impressively telepathic manner. Dripping wet with energy and electricity, “Live! At The Spring Crater Celebration” contains not a speck of down time. A loud and fiery affair, the album is so vivid and exciting that it makes the listener feel as if they’re right onstage with the band.”

The Myrrors

“With little attention to singing, Tucson’s The Myrrors instead focus on a unique brand of desert rock where atmosphere and experimentalism are both psyche and prog-rock fueled. Each track here winds its own distinct and complicated path, from droning and muted to bursts of jazz fusion and all with a haunting, mysterious backdrop. The band are never in a hurry to get anywhere, instead focusing on manipulating each moment before moving into other unpredictable realms.”

Space Invaders

“SPACE INVADERS is a loose project of members originally being underway with different space and krautrock bands in Germany and Switzerland. It all started in 2009 at the Burg Herzberg Festival where session guitarist Mike Häfliger (SPACENOTE), bass player Paul Pott (ZONE SIX) as well as Dirk Bittner and Dirk Jan Müller of ELECTRIC ORANGE fame came together for some jam experiences. Diverse live gigs followed featuring guests like Mani Neumeier and Damo Suzuki.”
