Kombynat Robotron – Dickfehler Studio Treffen II (2022)

“Get ready for blast off…those German psychonauts, Kombynat Robotron are back on Drone Rock Records with another slab of far-out, cosmic space-rock, ‘Dickfehler Studio Treffen II’… The first Dickfehler Session went down a storm with customers and reviewers alike and this follow-up record continues where volume I left off with more extended krautrocky (if that isn’t a word, it should be!) jams and deep sonic explorations. Like I said, get ready for blast off, and prepare yourself for a psychedelic trip into the depths of the kosmische cosmos.”

Mythic Sunship – Light​/​Flux (2022)

“Light / Flux sees the Scandinavian outfit Mythic Sunship take their self-proclaimed Anaconda Rock in a new direction. The band has previously incorporated elements from jazz, prog, psychedelic music as well as a ferocious punk feel both in production and playing on their penultimate record Wildfire (2021). Notorious for their usually improvised approach, Light / Flux is the result of a more composed, melodically and harmonically curious process, though still with the band’s signature penchant for unhinged improvisation at its core.”

Papir – 7 (2022)

“Many aspects of Papir’s music seem to have much in common with the sea – be it a wilful association by the Copenhagen-based trio or not. Their output moves in waves, sometimes fierce and blustery, sometimes gentle and calming, but always performed with unforced, organic talent. Over the course of their 7 full-length albums, the band sways between psychedelic guitar meltdowns and long atmospheric passages with grace and ease. 7, with its blurred aquatic cover artwork is of course no exception to this rule, and the album is comprised of four long songs that return to calming waters after 2021’s heavier Jams.”

VA – International Space Station Vol. 1 (2022)

“4 international bands (Kungens Män, Electric Moon, ElonMusk, Kanaan) contributing an exclusively recorded instrumental track of 1 LP side each, about how to watch the ISS crossing their skies from time to time… Long and psychedelic tracks pulsating through space and try to follow the way of the space station around our globe and even beyond, to contribute you the opportunity to travel through your inner cosmosis while listening, only interrupted by the needle lifting, which could be just be some stops at random interstellar stations, to release and gain passengers.”

Minami Deutsch – Fortune Goodies (2022)

“Everyone has their own imagination about outer space, and each one us gets to daydream about what exactly floats or exists there. ‘Fortune Goodies’ is Minami Deutsch’s long-awaited 3rd studio album and an encyclopaedia of Krautrock, as band leader Kyotaro Miula describes it. While not all the songs on the record function as straightforward Krautrock this time around, they still manage to capture the spirit and heart of the genre. After relocating from Tokyo to Berlin, Miula’s musical vocabulary has greatly expanded, thus resulting in this ultimate Japanese take on cosmic music in 2022.”

London Odense Ensemble – Jaiyede Sessions Vol. 1 (2022)

“In recent years London has become an epicenter for experimental, visionary jazz. On this unique session, two of the finest exponents of the London jazz scene, Tamar Osborn and Al MacSween, join forces with members of the celebrated Danish psychedelic underground – Jonas Munk, Jakob Skøtt and Martin Rude – to create a heady sonic brew. On this first volume of material there’s everything one could hope for in such a collaboration: sonically it summons the free flowing euphoria of Alice Coltrane and Pharoah Sanders’ work in the late 1960s and early 1970s. But there’s also a focus on rhythmic energy and vitality that calls to mind the grooviest krautrock or electric period Miles Davis, as well as a healthy dose of electronic experiments.”

Artifacts & Uranium – Pancosmology (2022)

“Pancosmology was recorded during the Summer/Autumn of 2021 and is the second collaboration between Mike Vest (Bong, Blown Out, 11 Paranoias) and Fred Laird (Earthling Society, Taras Bulba, Empty House). More song structured than the kosmische vibes of the first A&U LP, ‘Pancosmology’ is a Smorgasbord of sonic attack and lonesome desert twang. Here the ghosts of Ron Ashton and Takashi Mizutani are raised in Vest’s stereo delayed guitar attack and the Dub and Eno-esque soundscapes inspiring Laird’s dream like synth textures and echoed keys. Seekers looking for the sounds of The Stooges, Lez Rallizes Denudes, CAN, Chrome, Barn Owl and other noise refuseniks will find plenty in these sonic grooves.”

Black Holes Are Cannibals – Surfacer (2022)

“BHAC are a collective with a varying line-up and each time they record all the music is improvised as they let their collective and innate abilities guide them, but what does bind them are the touchstones of Drone and Minimalism that runs through the music they create or just plain HEAVY. Call them Drone Metal or Psychedelic it matters not as the music created is an immersive, all consuming and thought-provoking transcendental listening experience that awaits those brave enough to take the ride with BHAC.”
