Space rock, eh? It’s like stoner rock but set in space. “It’s the new drone,” says Phil.

I know this one by Manchester's Dead Sea Apes is space rock because the cover is a giant picture of the moon, and also because of the sounds it contains within its mystical analogue grooves. If you’ve ever listened to Carlton Melton or Sylvester Anfang II then you know the score; a slow, plodding and repetitive rhythm section filled out by layered drones and ornamented with sinewy, understated guitar details which glimmer and twang like Ennio Morricone coming face to face with the void.

It’s a style which this trio are particularly adept at, imbuing their tracks with a smoky dub undercurrent and a strangely unstoppable vibe despite the very slow pace and relative lack of volume (in stoner rock terms at least). There’s something crushingly inevitable about their cosmic rock plod, like a giant robot trudging inexorably towards a helpless village.

Basically it’s dub-fuelled soundtracky space rock like a monumentally stoned cross between Anthroprophh and Forest Swords. It’s good, especially if you’re sitting on a giant beanbag with a big saggy blunt flopping greasily between your fingers.
