Reissue of little-known kraut rock band Sand's only album, 1974's 'Golem'. The album was once chosen as Julian Cope's record of the month, and you can see why. Trippy synthesisers accompany a blend of drum-less rock and folk. It's properly psychedelic and totally weird and ace. Buy it as it should be heard, on vinyl. On Rotorelief records.

8/10 Jack Customer review, 6th June 2017
Putting forth nine songs, that while not redefining the psych genre, make for satisfying listening. The majority of songs occupy one of two camps- pop gems that sound like a more muscular Tame Impala, or rowdy jams reminiscent of a more focused Comets of Fire. Regardless of which camp a song falls in, however, it is apparent that this band has chops, unleashing bursts of inspired playing while never hesitating to experiment with keyboard sounds and random noises. Golem is thirty-seven minutes of inspired psych rock glory.
