Australian band Krakatau’s debut “Water Near A Bridge” seemingly have their origins before recorded history, emerging from the primordial ooze & lurching towards your turntable like a creature out of Lovecraftian fiction.

The guitar-less trio, Krakatau utilize organ, bass & drums to communicate their message crafting dense & heady tunes sprung from the seeds of improvisation & honed to perfection in the studio. 

“Water Near A Bridge” is a vinyl-only release, pressed on 150gm black vinyl & includes a download code. The album is also available digitally via most online retailers, but we recommend you hear it on wax.

RIYL: Agitation Free, Cluster, Popol Vuh, Godspeed! YBE, Embryo, Magma, Bitchin’ Bajas

8/10 Staff review, 24 July 2014

The on-form Trouble In Mind drop this tasty morsel of Antipodean psych-prog from Krakatau this week. This threesome employ drums, bass and organ in their pursuit of cosmic new-age meditations and surprising jam rock diversions.

When they do head into the more ambient cosmic side of things like on 'John Stoat' it's deeply hypnotic, all layered drones and infinitely cycling trance loops with a bit of tape hiss and a fat bottom, really floaty stuff. When they get into a jammier mode it varies from thoughtful puttering drums and cyclic Popol Vuh-ish melodies through to twisty-turny cop show funk. It's a pretty intriguing mixture and all the individual elements are very well executed. If you like spaced out drones and guitar-less psychedelia, check it out.
