The Void has clearly called up Lumerians and just told ‘em to keep on doing what they’re doing, man. The Californian space-rockers have heeded said Call Of The Void and turned in another psychedelic smorgasbord, this time getting the people at Fuzz Club (King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, Night Beats) to do the heavy lifting. Krautrock, free jazz, drone, Zamrock - they’re all neatly assimilated into this stylishly unkempt LP.

A psychedelic smorgasbord! That’s what our description writer Fred called it and I’m way into plagiarising so I’m repeating him. Considering they’re a psych crew releasing on Fuzz Club, you’d expect them to be a serious bunch contemplating the very stars that shape our universe, using music to turn those shiny specks into the monolithic giants they are. However they call their songs things like “Fuck All Y’all”, so nevermind. Nevermind, us.
Anywho, your mileage will vary; if you find subgenre mixology enjoyable, then you’ve got the smokiness of psych rock, the razzle dazzle of kosmische and the remoteness of new wave to tide you over, this record oscillating its way through a series of different psychedelic game books. Ever perpetual, it fits the mould perfectly, the drums generally carrying the record through loose dialogues of bright synth and growling guitar. The juxtaposed whirrings of “Signal” make for a good highlight at the records epicentre, offering hues of bubblegum and doom at once.
An enjoyable trance, you may well be asking yourself just how many of these records you can feasibly and responsibly have in your collection. At least one more, I would venture. Much like the void, Krautrock is calling.
