- Pewt'r Sessions 1 by Causa Sui
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 in the classic tradition of 70's psych and kraut rock bands like Blue Cheer, Guru Guru, Amon Düül II and Ash Ra Tempel and on 'Pewt'r Sessions' they sustain that semi-improv sound throughout without completely loosing the plot and resorting to mindless space sludge. Each side consists of one extended composition complimented by two shorter pieces. The longer jams act as the weight here but it's the shorter tracks that bring the diversity in approach sorely lacking from the majority of modern psych rock records. You've got your full on psych for the sake of it tracks like 'Mating Call' and 'Pewt'r Wozniacki' but it's sun-drenched relox-o jam of 'May Sun', the cosmic synth worshipping 'Streams Of Gratitude' and the all out power rocker 'Wasted Milk' that leave a lasting impression. It may be a little throw back but these songs are so exquisitely performed that you can't help but be impressed. The way the group are capable of channeling the classic elements of krautrock so effortlessly whilst incorporating the best of American psychedelia means I'm incapable of not enjoying this record.
