When a meeting of cultures occurs in a musical setting, something 'unordinary' may possibly occur. But when this meeting involves two awesome creators, it may even be extraordinary. Here Japan meets Ukraine and Canada, as celebrated Red Bull artist Haioka creates his own version of Ummagma 'Kiev'. Enjoy!
Chanting has long been a tradition within world cultures - nearly everywhere you go in one form or another. When chanting takes the form of vocals with lilts, overlaps, intersections and emotion, it can be particularly powerful. That is what 'Winter Tale' seeks to embody. Enjoy.
A love song transcending space and very much linked to a time, a feeling of weightlessness. I'll let the lyrics speak for themselves: Cosmic lover Made up my mind I’m not going home This is where I’ll stay With you Long as you’ll be here So will I In our space In our space Orion is closer Now than ever Get to know the universe Around us I can feel your movement When I see you Every morning Every moment Every motion Whenever we drift away
Space has long been a stimulator for creative outlet in nearly every sphere of human activity, music being no exception. In this track, it is clearly front and centre, whether it for you brings an association with the cosmos or you internal realm. Happy listening.
If psychedelic space rock can be sparkly, this song would be the epitome of that dynamic.. Or shimmery or glistening or whatever. Glitter is in the eye of the beholder.
Space rock is a term that is often over-used for various psychrock tunes, but it is dead on for this track from Sounds of Sputnik. Or space post-rock or even space post-rock shoegaze. Looking forward to your take on that.
