29th May 2014 at 12:16 pm

Serpentine Path

As sophomore albums go, the latest Serpentine Path record is about as good as it gets. It’s hard enough to create one great LP, but it’s harder still to follow it up with something that doesn’t feel like a disappointment. But then with Tim…

Roadburn 2014 – Day 3 & Afterburner Review By Saúl Do Caixão

29th April 2014 at 12:26 pm

Roadburn 2014 - Day 3

Three days into the quartet of musical transcendence that is Roadburn and my lungs, liver and ears were beginning to feel the strain, despite the lingering excitement about how good Magma had been the night before (no, I will not shut up about it)….

Roadburn 2014 – Day 2 Review By Saúl Do Caixão

25th April 2014 at 9:31 am

Roadburn 2014 - Day 2

As the second day of Roadburn dawned, several thousand musical nomads arose to the scent of prog rock and a worn liver. Mikael Åkerfeldt was a choice for the post of curator that I for one would never have guessed, but it made total…

22nd April 2014 at 10:31 am

Roadburn 2014 - Day 1

April swings round again, and once more the familiar scents of sweat, beard wax, cannabis and high-quality beer waft down a certain street in Tilburg and three nearby venues; the Roadburn festival is shifting into gear, undaunted by several high-profile cancellations at the last…

Warp Transmission & Heavy Smoke

Some things are like buses; you wait ages for one, and then two come along at once! Therefore, today we present to you not one, but TWO great new bands of the lysergic persuasion from Finland, approaching psychedelia from rather different angles, both to…

Yet Another Tedious 2013 Year Review By Saúl Do Caixão

27th December 2013 at 10:38 am

Saúl Do Caixão

Another year gone and I find myself faced with the prospect of littering the internet with yet another useless “best of the year” list. To be honest, I wasn’t going to bother, not least because I managed to shatter the right side of my…

Eidetic Seeing ‘Against Nature’ LP/DD 2013

4th December 2013 at 9:37 am

Eidetic Seeing

Two years ago, Eidetic Seeing quietly released their first album to an unsuspecting (if somewhat jaded) public. Since then, many bands have come and gone, all laying claim to being the most authentically psychedelic of experiences. Not so Sean Forlenza’s superlative power trio –…

Høstsabbat Festival 2013 Review By Saúl Do Caixão

4th October 2013 at 8:42 am

Høstsabbat 2013

The lifeblood of any musical community is local talent – flying bands in is an increasingly expensive and risky venture. Competition from (neverending!) American TV series, an equally interminable economic downturn and good old fashioned apathy have conspired to create an atmosphere where flying…
