I can't say I know exactly what's going on with this but I know that it's totally amazing. As far as I can ascertain Aqua Nebula Oscillator have been around for aeons but they've completely avoided any of our Norman Records radars until now, which is a real shame as their stoned psychedelic jams are both totally fantastic and peculiarly timeless.. I can only assume from the title that these hand-picked archival selections date from the last twelve years but they sound like they should really be decades older than that. I mean at one tune's a total dead ringer for 'Interstellar Overdrive'-era Floyd, both in sound and outlook.. Another could almost be Fraction. Most are far more stoned and meandering than either of those comparisons might suggest. They crack out all the old psychedelic staples; Doorsy organ, wibbly theremin, sitars, pleasantly awkward East/West collisions, comedy 'boing-oing' noises like someone's just pinged Barbara Windsor's bra etc. etc. I don't think a review's even that necessary for this to be fair; just do a Google image search on the band name, check the photoshoots and you should have a pretty good idea of whether you need to partake or not. Or trust me when I say that if you've any appetite at all for the work of Sylvester Anfang (who're the modern act they most resemble and who've released this beauty via their Funeral Folk label) you should be absolutely ravenous at the prospect of this fine delicacy. Or I guess you could even go here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Au5JLuShyjQ) to listen to a bit of it.. Actually, that's probably the best thing to do. Stop reading this and and do that!
