The new album is here! This is our self-titled second release, the first being our 27-minute EP Live In The Studio released in 2017. Whereas the EP was originally recorded in late 2013 and finally officially released in 2017, the new album was recorded in Spring 2017 by Doug Haire for Seattle radio station KEXP’s Sonarchy Radio program. Producer, engineer, and grunge founding father Jack Endino remixed and remastered the session including a complete re-amping of Cary’s bass tracks. The result is a very powerful sound that is one part rock and roll, one part free jazz, and 100% creative psychedelic music. Known Swedish painter Hawk Alfredson was commissioned to do a new version of his lost painting “Solvesborg” for the front cover, and then graciously provided us with the use of another of his paintings, “Final Transforming Stages of a Spyral Planet Within a Parallel Universe In Your Head,” for the inside cover.
Here is video footage of our tune “Eta Carinae” from the original KEXP Sonarchy Radio session.
We performed at the 2019 Psychedelic Autumn Equinox Festival at the end of September. It was another art-rock event where all of the bands were nothing short of incredible. We had the special treat of featuring a stellar performance by Zhong Yu in a rare live outing, preceded by the basic trio formation of that group also known as Super Z Attack Team. Our show was recorded to video, thanks to Sean, and you can see our entire set here. Please click on the YouTube link below to see us do our tune "Arcturus" and a live cover of Galacticka's "Unsanity." Enjoy!
