Kanaan
Windborne

Debut album from Norwegian three-piece Kanaan. On Windborne they explore the part of the musical map where psych, post-rock and jazz lie. Tight groves, held down by their disciplined rhythm pair, spill out into over the top improvised chaos. This is a young band who really know their 70s influence...view item »

Causa Sui
Free Ride

Free Ride by Causa Sui is a modern psych-rock classic that has been out of print for ten years out of the eleven that it’s been alive. It was the second album by the Danish outfit who feature Jonas Munk, who remastered this for reissue, among their ranks. The album rock...view item »

Jakob Skøtt
Instrumentality

Recorded after the presumably rather scary experience of leaking brain fluid, here’s Causa Sui drummer and Dane Jakob Skøtt’s latest for El Paraiso. Mainly the sounds of drums synths, it’s riffy, jazzy, groovy and electro-y with jerking polyrhythms, muscular production and a nice cover d...view item »

Causa Sui
Pewt'r sessions 1-2

Here I have in my robot hand a CD collection of both of Causa Sui's excellent 'Pewt'r Sessions'. Rather than review the whole thing again, you can read Li'l Biz and Brian's 9 star reviews of the individual albums below.......   Pewt'r Sessions 1  by Li'l Biz   Ron Schneiderman of m...view item »

Mythic Sunship
Another Shape Of Psychedelic Music

Mythic Sunship work in a doom-psych context, but the presence of a saxophone, as well as a free-jazz mindset, takes their work into wider territory. Another Shape Of Psychedelic Music is just that, being a swirling, metamorphosing beast that grooves and throbs and riffs and blasts. Not just another psych group you under...view item »

Futuropaco
Futuropaco

One man bands aren't what they used to be. Futuropaco is Justin Pinkerton, previously of Thrill Jockey psych-rockers Golden Void, and it's only him you'll hear on this debut. Pinkerton is also a composer of library and commercial music, so you can think of&nb...view item »

Causa Sui
Live At Freak Valley

Don’t you think we have a shortage of serious psychedelic jamming bands nowadays? Because that’s what Causa Sui thought, and they’re pretty darn serious about alleviating our troubles. This professionally mastered live album, with 9 tracks on 2 discs (even on CD!) will deliver great bang for your buck....view item »

Causa Sui
Live in Copenhagen

Oh how I bet our Ian wishes he could have been there. Two performances from the approaching legendary Euro-kraut group Causa Sui at release parties for albums in 2013 and 2016. As they rarely play live this is the opportunity to catch them in their element, stretching and twisting their songs out of all recognition. ...view item »

Causa Sui
Return To Sky

Spaced-out krautrock impressions from Causa Sui. They bring the tight loops and grooves of a minimal rock group, but add in some slowed down stoner freak-outs. Return to Sky on El Paraiso Records is unapologetically psychedelic, full of heavy riffing, massive drums and surreal breakdowns that so...view item »

Mythic Sunship
Ouroboros

Mythic Sunship are a band deeply in love with the early freakout krautrock bands, heavily psychedelic and fuzzed into bliss. Some of the band members of this Copenhagen-based outfit have associations with the Posh Isolation label, so look out for noisy tinges around the edges. Ouroboros is th...view item »

Jonas Munk
Absorb / Fabric / Cascade

From one of Causa Sui’s finest, another solo release - Absorb / Fabric / Cascade is a three song 37-minute exploration into the world between drone and rock. Jonas Munk’s previous solo releases have proven this man’s capabilities, and we are eager to find out what his next step will be. There’s o...view item »

Landing
Bells In New Towns

Landing have been at it for twenty years but 'Bells in New Towns' proves that they are still as strong as ever. They play a textured form of post rock, motorik kraut and blissed out shoegaze that is lush and shimmering bringing to mind other long running US outfits such as Yo La Tengo and Bardo Pond...view item »

Psicomagia
Psicomagia

Oh yes, the music gods are smiling on me this morning. Not everyone in this office is a fan of the ol’ psych-rock/jazz crossover business but I love this stuff. I’ve not encountered California’s Psicomagia before but right from the start these guys are hitting all my pleasure buttons. The basic line-up seems to revolve around T...view item »

Jakob Skott
Taurus Rising

"Pleiades" sounds kind of like Sweet Child Of Mine played on a krutrocker's synth, which is a nice way of summing up the music of Jakob Skøtt, who makes exciting and silly electronic prog with synths and bombastic drum work (Skøtt's tenure in Causa Sui is evident here). It sounds like if the Nice wore sunglasses and took drugs afte...view item »

Causa Sui
Vibraciones Doradas

Danish psych rock stoners, Causa Sui are rounding off their sort-of-trilogy of albums with a mini album, Vibraciones Doradas, Spanish for Golden Vibrations. It follows on from 2013’s Euporie Tide and 2016’s Return To The Sky. Their influences range from fusion-era Miles Davis, Krautrock groups such a...view item »

Jakob Skott
All The Colours Of The Dust

Jakob Skott drums in the Danish group Causa Sui, but also has a solo concern where he sets his drums off against his synthesiser collection. All The Colours Of The Dust is his third record of this, and is real nice and groovy, the drums and synths darting in and out of one another for a technicolour exp...view item »

Nicklas Sørensen
Solo 2

Nicklas Sørensen is the guitarist of band Papir, but there’s plenty more to him than that. He also produces solo work, and guess what? Solo 2 contains just that. Sørensen has plugged his guitar into the lineage of gorgeous melodic minimal kosmische music, using elect...view item »

Mythic Sunship
Upheaval

After a handful of cassette releases, 2016 saw the first full length vinyl LP / CD from the Copenhagen spacerockers. They have a firm grounding in of Sabbath-esque stoner sensibilities, but their lengthy instrumental jams also have a lysergic touch of Guru Guru's free rock, and the wild present day psych of ...view item »

Papir
Live at Roadburn

‘Live At Roadburn’ is Papir’s fifth full length album and first ever live album. Known and loved for their awe inspiring live performances and intense live studio albums, it makes perfect sense for these cosmic, Danish stoner rockers to produce a live album that captures their explosive blend of post rock drone, pounding bass l...view item »

Videodrones
Nattens Hævn

The Danish duo of Videodrones release their 2nd album in the form of ‘Nattens Hævn’, which delves even further into their realm of improvised synth. Taking inspiration from many Italian composers like Riz Ortolani and others, this new album puts a new found insanity on their unique s...view item »

Causa Sui
Euporie Tide

Causa Sui’s most recent album, the double LP excursion into heavy cosmic psych moods that was 'Pewt’r Sessions', was a bit of a favourite around these parts, and now Jonas Munk(aka Manual)’s stoner rock troupe are at it again with anot...view item »

Astral TV
Crystal Shores

Rasmus Rasmussen usually plays all the electronic trinkets keeping Causau Sui proggified, acting as their warlock of the synth and keeping things adequately weird. Along with Keith Canisius they make an aging, dusty sound in tribute to the kosmische sound of old, which has fo...view item »

Black Cube Marriage
Astral Cube

Black Cube Marriage is a mighty Rob Mazurek ensemble formed out various members of Marriage, Rob’s famed Sao Paolo Underground, and extra players like Steve Jansen. With eleven people on board, the group can summon up the cosmic freedom of...view item »

Papir
Stundum

Danish prog wobblers Papir get a reissue of their 2011 album ‘Stundum’ for the El Paraiso label, this being a double LP and single CD clocking in at a gargantuan 80 minutes of pure prog heaven. They often veer from noodling jazz guitar up to full on psychedelic rock jams that cover Santana style samba th...view item »

Mythic Sunship
Land Between Rivers

Straight outta Copenhagen fly Mythic Sunship, a heavy psychedelic quartet swimming in a lake of fuzz. Land Between Rivers is a riffed-up monster of an album, with track lengths that stretch out into the far distance and deep-dug grooves that just won’t let up. Released on CD and LP by El Paraiso Records....view item »

Videodrones
Mondo Ferox

Holding up the synth-end of the El Parasio bargain are Videodrones, whose glistening kosmische sound emerges outta a Danish synth duo in love with horror soundtracks, Westerns and old Krautrock ambience. Rather than make music that stagnates and becomes silent, their music feels narratively taut and fittingly melodramatic. ...view item »

Monarch
Two Isles

Monarch have been hanging out in sunny San Diego for so long now that they can’t help but sound lounged-out and relaxed. Their debut album Two Isles is a psych-tinged, slightly-stoned rock record that feels in no hurry to go anywhere too soon: each song is comfortable j...view item »

Landing
Third Sight

Connecticut's Landing have been making rural psychedelia for over twenty years but without reaching Flying Saucer Attack like levels of adoration. Those in the know appreciate this band for its ability to distil fuzzed up driftings and blissed out folk that could be compared to prime movers Bardo Pond and ...view item »

Nicklas Sorensen
Solo

Nicklas Sørensen, of Papir, strikes out on his own for the first time, with Solo (each track is also named Solo). Given the chance to just sit down with his guitar and make it happen, he follows some wonderful minimal patterns, establishing a healthy ambient feel for this listener. Relea...view item »

Brian Ellis & Brian Grainger
At Dusk

Southern California multi-instrumentalist Brian Ellis presents a collection of dusky instrumentals produced in collaboration with South Carolina ambient musician Brian Grainger. The music has some of the lightly eerie drift of Bill Frisell at his most atmospheric, with perhaps a touch of ...view item »

Brian Ellis Group
Escondido Sessions

Don’t hear so much jazz-rock around these days do we? Well hear it now, with Brian Ellis and his Group. The Escondido Sessions grounds flighty jazz improvisations with a firmly rock rhythm section. Saxophones, but also guitar, organ and Moog synth make up the palette of this record. Pretty strong ...view item »

Shiggajon
Sela

Danish collective Shiggajon deal in multi-faceted cacophony of the Coltrane variety. Sela takes a longform Eastern-tinged sound that’s infused with a spiritual essence. Call it ritual jazz or improv drone it’s an expansive, escapist journey with cathartic, euphoric results. Out on vinyl LP from El Paraiso Re...view item »

Jakob Skott
Taurus Rising + Amor Fati

A fresh mango of positivity from Jakob Skott. Taurus Rising + Amor Fati is a double release from this single man project. You need to understand his love of synths, I mean, he's really, really, really into synths - and drums. Lots of major scale madness, sounding like a mix between Neu!, Holy Fuck and Lightning Bolt's m...view item »

Causa Sui
Pewt'r Sessions 3

Jonas Munk and Jakob Skott’s merry band of prog rockers release the third part of the Pewt’r Sessions on the El Paraiso label, just a mini album of sorts really with only 3 tracks although the third track is a mere 27 minutes long. It’s the usual recipe used here, super jammed out prog-rock themes that twist and turn like a twi...view item »

Papir
III + IIII

Copenhagen weed-rocker trio Papir have by now firmly established themselves as one of the top names in European psychedelic stoner jams, with a warm and krauty style where every song seems like it could continue indefinitely without losing momentum. Their most recent couple of LPs have been their best to date, and t...view item »

Jakob Skott
Amor Fati

A wild ride from Jakob Skøtt on this LP reissue from El Paraiso Records. Skøtt, the drummer of Causa Sui goes it alone on Amor Fati, but sees that as no reason to cut down on the quantity of sounds he presses into service. Lots of slithery synths all over the place. And ju...view item »

Jakob Skott
Doppler

The Doppler effect is when you perceive a change of pitch in a sound as you move relative to the object producing the sound, since the waveforms are shortened when it’s moving towards you and elongated as it moves away. I’m experiencing an entirely different Doppler effect toda...view item »

Papir
Papir IIII

Danish psych trio Papir are now on their fourth album, the imaginitively titled 'IIII', and as you would probably expect by now, it's got some instrumental psych-rock jams on it; a couple of 10-minute numbers on the first side and then a mammoth 22-minute closer on side B. All three are hypno-grooving workouts which build with an almost post-roc...view item »

Jonas Munk

Definite krautrock influence here from the Danish electronic musician most famed for his records under the name Manual and who has already collaborated with the likes of Tortoise and Chicago Jazz Ensemble. Opener 'Orca' comprises the electronic squiggles of Kraftwerk circa 'Autobahn' with ...view item »

Causa Sui
Pewt'r Sessions 2

This is tripping my face right off. The first sold-out volume of Big Ron from Sunburned Hand of the Man's psych jam excursions with Danish spacefacers Causa Sui caused much celebration in this sweaty hole of an office and now part two is here to shave the top of your head off and spit...view item »

Causa Sui
Pewt'r Sessions 1

Ron Schneiderman of maddening improv-rockers Sunburned Hand Of The Man returns to Denmark to drink a few beers, bake a few chongs and jam it out with pals Causa Sui. Having joined this collective of Danish musicians live on various occasions in the past it's fitting they've found to find the time to commit a session to tape. Causa Sui's music is...view item »
