After a handful of cassette releases, 2016 saw the first full length vinyl LP / CD from the Copenhagen spacerockers. They have a firm grounding in of Sabbath-esque stoner sensibilities, but their lengthy instrumental jams also have a lysergic touch of Guru Guru's free rock, and the wild present day psych of Pharaoh Overlord and Acid Mothers Temple.
7/10 Robin Staff review, 11 January 2018
2018, baby. New year; new me. New psych? No. No it’s… it’s pretty much the same.
On its way from the Causa Sui lieges at El Paradiso is a new one from star-eaters Mythic Sunship, whose cosmic journeys are based on the same traditions of jam we’ve been devouring for years and years now. Their grooving bass lines and dense percussive heft offers rhythm as if it were a heart monitor showing a healthy pulse; the guitars squirm and dovetail away from proceedings in the most predictable of psychedelic transgressions. It’s a good old fashioned cosmic mess.
Ever the masters of all the psych, Mythic Sunship offer it to us in different hues. Would we like it sunstroked? “Aether Flux” does the job with its wilting desert rock, its scorched chords and glowing riffs recalling the terse outdoor meanderings of the great Eternal Tapestry; “Cosmic Rupture” feels pointedly hard rock in both tone and execution, while “Into Oblivion” implies something doomier, a foreboding marching beat eventually scattering into a wasteland of endlessly wahing guitars. A familiar one to ease the freaks into our newest year of fright.
