Bloodstains Across Atherton-Billy Idol in the Muzak?
|Ragnar of Ravensfjord|
Amazing amount of early 70’s prog & psych worship with 2 mellotrons. This invokes a lot of fantastic, spacey drifty stuff with some long jams that all work out well. Nothing bloated just the best stuff culled from Hawkwind, King Crimson, Camel, Yes (’71-’74 era), and even Far East Family Band. Even the artwork looks like it’s from an unused session from Yes’ “Relayer”. Then again, Arik Roper has sort of become the new Roger Dean. |
(((((1)))))) Slow to mid-paced proggy-psych with flutes warbling guitars. Then gets into a nice & heavy jam with plenty of drift & wah pedal & mellotron.
(((((2))))) Long track with more mellotron and some serious King Crimson/Pink Floyd/Camel worship. Dystopian lyrics among the groovy, spacey bits.
(((((((3))))))) Late night jazzy, drifting prog with very 70’s vocals. So 70’s there’s a black light poster of a customized van playing this very song. Really good drumming + obvious but awesome mellotron/keyboards “dweeel-dwee-ooo”.
(((((4))))) Classic mellotron & drums sound, majestic (& well done) Rick Wakeman styled keyboards. Weird, extremely 70’s vocals. In this case, their more like Kansas with better equipment & chops. Not a bad thing, here actually.
(((((((5))))))) Noodly synths with a “can’t be anything BUT prog” jam and gorgeous sounding mellotron. Great guitar tone, too.
((6)) Acoustic strum with sort of mystical late 60’s pop & folk vocals. Way too much Moody Blues/Beatles softness.
(((((((7))))))) Spacey mellotrons meandring about into a holy psych & prog trinity of Camel/King Crimson/Far East Family Band.
(((((((8))))))) Majestic, wizard cape sportin’ psych-prog with again some great guitar tone, organ/keys, and atmosphere.
