...and sometimes it just turns out that the newest members of the freak music family are a bunch of long-haired Japanese twenty-somethings playing Zappa-loving Canterbury-inspired blissed-out spiritual jazz rippers. If you had that on your predictions list, right on, you’ll be extra amped. But either way, meet De Lorians, Tokyo’s newest fire music exports, by way of their self-titled debut.

Description/Reviews
So where best to start than the end; the last track on the album is A Yarn From A Wheel, by far the longest at over 13 minutes, and either considered as a long progressive piece or a series of short pieces woven together like a Victorian sampler. It is a great piece of music, capturing the sound that was the early Seventies, off chart sound and sounding of the now. Even though the lady prefers analogue recording, the sound is sharp and clear, no sign of the compression that can occur in the digital studio.

Release date: July 22, 2019 (digital), October 4, 2019 (CD),

3. We Glut Our Souls On The Accursed (06:04)
4. And We Are Damned Amid Noble Sound (11:28)

Line-up
Ryan, Dooley, Derek, Matt, Jesse

Description/Reviews
Some of the more subdued moments on this release such as the first half of “The Bugles Blow, Fanned By Hysteria” take on a bit of a doom/stoner feel, not too unlike the excellent release from Spotlights earlier this year, with almost a jazzy atmospheric flair of a MONO. Speaking of which I really appreciate how they use percussion, mainly cymbals, to drive the atmosphere. It gives it this disorienting out of body type dissonance.  The album closer hits with a dizzying Swans-ian swarm of sound and passion that builds into some Pelican like grooves, and the live appeal of this band by now is certainly palpable. Glacier provide a soundtrack for your personal journey into a dense void. This is No Light Ever.

Kit Watkins, maestro of both the progressive and ambient genres, has generated musical splendor spanning five decades.

The trio... draws upon backgrounds in post-rock, electronic, jazz and contemporary chamber music – foundations on which they build with an ever-increasing sense of freedom and adventure. Embracing the collision of frenetic percussion, clanging guitars and vaporous synths, they absorb faded relics of retro-futurism and bygone musical eras into their own new and twistingly melodic musical language.

It takes the listener on a journey through this process, in the spirit of a progressive rock opera.

Elder "The Gold & Silver Sessions"


Country: USA
Genre(s): Instrumental Psychedelic
Label: Blues Funeral Recordings
FormatCD, vinyl, digital
Release date: July 12, 2019
Tracklist
1. Illusory Motion (9:53)
2. Im Morgengrauen (5:24)
3. Weißensee  (18:33)

Total Time 33:50

Line-up
Nicholas DiSalvo - Guitar
Jack Donovan - Bass
Matt Couto - Drums
Mike Risberg - Guitar

Description/Reviews
Elder’s forthcoming release, The Gold & Silver Sessions,..., it’s also a bold, experimental departure for the band. The Gold & Silver Sessions, for one, are entirely instrumental. For another, two of these three songs lean heavily on live jamming, while all three dive into kosmische, the psychedelic and experimental rock tradition of Germany. Both of those influences have long been a part of Elder’s music — but a small part.
