- The Papermoon Sessions by Papir Meets Electric Moon
8/10 Phil Staff review, 20 November 2013
Papir are part of the Danish pysch rock scene along with the likes of Causa Sui and the rest of the El Paraiso roster. Electric Moon appear to be a German psych rock band who have a penchant for space rock. Nice! Both bands played together in a room with no audience on a day. Here are the fruits of that joined musical love.
‘Farewell Mr. Space Echo’ is the album's sixteen-minute opener. If you’re after catchy three-minute pop songs then you might as well just switch off your television set and do something more interesting instead as this isn’t for you. It’s a massive, swirling space jam which builds up gently from some mellow Doors-y meanderings to full on huge ‘in your face’ rock grooves which could only serve for the purpose of face melting. It’s as epic as psych rock gets. Crashy cymbal drums with a monotonous but driving bass line battered with walls of guitars widdling like a gallon of sperm. I can’t believe I think that’s an appropriate thing to write.
Also, and this is somewhat of a hinderance I believe, that last song was in fact ‘The Circle’ (the B side) and not ‘Farewell Mr. Space Echo’. Well I’m not starting again. In my defence it’s not very clear on the record and I could have been right the first time. I don’t know at all.
Well flipping it over to ‘the other long track’ brings us more meanderings, more jammy rock business with oodles of passion and power. It’s one of those long tracks that starts off quiet, goes loud about half way through, goes really loud towards the end and then goes back to being quiet before the heart attack starts. You know the ones. Now you know what it sounds like.
