Fractal Love is going for a pop rock approach as heard through a pair of ears that has been swimming in alternative psychedelic music for quite some time. It’s fun to hear it in an up-tempo poppy form, making me feel like holding hands with it and jumping happily around.
Operation Ein Stein’ is keeping up the quirkiness of bright and compact structure, but does sound more natural to the composer then the previous heard expedition. I’m realy liking the result of this; excellent music that manages to get this psychedelica shaped in a construction that sounds compact in a pop formula while having this excellent ability to make you enjoy and feel the ability to trip in a very positive and all in the family way.
Fighting near the throne ‘ is also great, less poppy and more space rock with a great relaxed attitude. It’s more minimal perhaps compared to the other ones, and it helps to focus on the baseline and turning it into a track that sounds laid back and yet cool at the same time. Love it.
Alien Oat’ gives the focus more on a heavy electric guitar that happily puts down it’s mark while almost beat boxing its way through the psychedelic intended backing friends.
Feelings in the Marinade ‘is another beauty on this stories inspired tracks. It has a relaxed psychedelic swing to it, with pretty electric guitar melodies and depth of letting them intertwine. It’s making me feel like in on a summers beach tripping after eating an spiked mango.
Scarlet Gambit of Father Frost ‘ is a more light swinging work, more playing around with a bass on top of this jazzy high-hat making it a more psychedelic piece of music in which things are less concrete and more ‘see what happens’ without failing to come across as if it was all planned on beforehand.
Really a nice quirky release that proofs that not only short stories can be conveyed in music, but also that the concept of psychedelic orientated music does seem to work out in short time frames in a almost ‘pop formula’, which is actually something you don’t come across every day; especially when you hear how positive and bright it all sounds.
