Lute FP Wow. Just wow. Two songs at about 23 minutes each.

I couldn’t get through half of the first ‘song’ without buying. One of the most tasteful combinations of heavy groove, mellow vocals, and tasteful songwriting out there.

Like a fusion of Pink Floyd and Om’s ‘Advaitic Songs’, this music has a bottom-end bass-driven groove that feels like your favorite body high.

And that’s just the first song. You can take it from here.

muschiosauro Bewitching, slow-paced psych doom. The first song is a long, mellow, hypnotic, spacey ride with a lazy, haunting chorus and some great keys and guitar parts that keep things interesting for over 20 minutes, constantly reminding me of what I love about bands like Hawkwind and Amon Düül II. Then comes the second 20+ minute track, where they add some twisted, filthy, and elephantine riffs that keep on going until the end of this journey that asks to be taken over and over. Favorite track: Side 1: Underestimating The Consequences Of Effective Propaganda (part 1) / Feline Will.
The Mad Professor

The Mad Professor Brilliant album from Spider Kitten. Mellow soundscapes on the first side, and when the heavy kicks in on side 2 it kicks to hurt Favorite track: Side 2: The Ark / One From The Heart / Hymn / Duplicitous / Launch / Underestimating The Consequences Of Effective Propaganda (part 2).

Paul Schwarz One of the best British and/or Welsh rock albums of this century so far. Made to be a tape from its optimally small graphical package to its rich analog tape recording ambiance. Sci fi meets heavy meets creeping death... Favorite track: Side 2: The Ark / One From The Heart / Hymn / Duplicitous / Launch / Underestimating The Consequences Of Effective Propaganda (part 2).

eyeofjim Defying boundries and labels, this is true musical artistry by players at the top of there game. Any true space cadet deserves it to themselves to check out this band. Favorite track: Side 1: Underestimating The Consequences Of Effective Propaganda (part 1) / Feline Will.

Feivl das Pech The perfect blend of Pink Floyd, Hawkwind and stoner metal but an album which stands, nevertheless, on its own merits. Nary a drop in quality from start to finish.
