Tonzonen Records (TON034)
The opener "Exit to the Death Lane" starts off with groovy ethnic percussion that is soon joined by hypnotic guitar riffs. This track sounds like a hybrid of Goat and 90s UK indie psych rock bands like Loop or The Telescopes, very cool. "Hey Droog!" is pretty similar in style and again we get some groovy rhythms and heavy, mind-melting guitar that also gets rather noisy. Wow! "You're No Good" has a mesmerizing and motorik beat and reminds me of bands like Lumerians in their party mode. I also enjoy the hypnotic vocals and the free-jazz sax gives a nice extra vibe. One of the highlights for sure! On side B we've got two long, more experimental instrumentals "Interstellar Fuzz Star" is pretty far-out stuff and I can hear some Hawkwind and early Pink Floyd jams in here. Very nice! On the last, slower, spacey and experimetal piece "Satori Disco" the spirit of Amon Düül II shines through. I'm sure this album will be on my top list for 2018, it really is that good.
