How much do kan a kando do if a kando kandodo? Well, 3 apparently. On k3, kandodo 3 have created four sides of vinyl worth of well practiced exploratory psych-rock. This is music for fans of the Heads, maybe unsurprisingly as that band's Simon Price leads the kandodo 3. It's vibes all the way... way... way... down. On Rooster Rock.

Loading up kandodo 3's new record 'k3', I thought "ah good, a nice short album to rattle off after lunch". How wrong I was. Each song is about a million years long, I swear to God. I'll do my best to plough through but my expectations were subverted in a really unpleasant way. 

Anyway! I do actually quite like this record. It will certainly sate anyone's appetite for long-form sonic psychedelic journeys. The last 'song', 'High On Planes/Drifter' is a mighty forty-minutes long cosmic colossus that might just be my favourite from 'k3'. It builds and builds with all manner of drum machines and guitar squalls before falling away into meandering ambient pieces overlayed with sci-fi-sounding voice samples, eventually turning into a great glorious wall of sound that fills your head. I don't want to be a picky Patrick (I know that's not a thing) but I think 'High On Planes/Drifter' could have been mixed a little better. The levels occasionally seem a little off and some of the arrangements are mired in a kind of claggy sonic loam. However, this doesn't really affect the album too much and it's just me being a finicky Freya (I know). 

Elsewhere, the album takes in dark ambient, coarse prog, Jesus & Mary Chain meets Eno on 'Holy Debut', and has a really wonderful interlude piece called 'Lapwinger'. 'k3' is a good record from a good band.
