Øresund Space Collective - Good Planets are Hard to Find (TRANS044)
This is the 5th CD by the all improvised space rock band from the
Copenhagen-Malmö region of Scandinavia (Øresund). It was recorded at the
Black Tornado Studios in November 2007 and featured new members on
drums, percussion, bass, guitar and sitar that had never been in the
studio with the band before. The dynamics and vibe was different and KG
from the band Siena Root played some amazing sitar on the opening and
closing pieces of music on the CD. We think you will find the music has a
more progressive and melodic element and is less spacey than our
previous releases. The same cool vibe and long journeys await the
patient listener. The CD was mixed by Steve Hayes (Secret Saucer) in the
USA. Steve also provides on synthesizer solo on Orbital Elevator to
replace one that Mogens played when his synthesizer went out of tune.
Steve has different ears and different gear so the mix is unique. The
band allowed Steve full freedom in the mix process, so he actually
becomes more a part of the musical project, so to speak. The CD was
mastered to give a nice round but intense rich sound by Henrik Udd, who
had mixed and mastered the band's previous 2 albums. The band on this
release was: KG- Sitar, Guitar; Tobias- Guitars; Mogens- Hammond and
Synthesizers; Jocke and Thomas- Bass; PIB- Drums; Luz- Percussion; Dr.
Space- Synthesizers The band has played the Kildemose Festival,
headlined the Slottskoggen goes Progressive Festival and also played the
Space Rock Odyssey 2008 Festival in Uppsala in 2008. Currently, the
band has plans to play gigs in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway, in
March and April 2009, including opening for Hawkwind at Oslo's legendary
Rockefeller Venue on April 18th. The band will also play the Kildemose
Festival in June and headline on the Friday night. We hope to be able to
play in Germany in the summer.
