REVERSED NATURE "Into the Limbo" (EYE 010)

REVERSED NATURE are a psychedelic jam rock band from Greece. Cosmic Eye presents their debut LP, characterized by a constant lazy flow of sounds, rhythms and voices. Never knowing where it will end, the band travel through long excursions falling somewhere between the drifty murk of space rock, krauty influenced jamming and the psychedelic aspect of some tribal post punk.

Opener "Into the Limbo" sets the mood perfectly, with it's tranced out, almost spacey sounding mesmer; that druggy, drowsy vibe surfacing throughout the rest of the track, sometimes morphing into a grim kosmische sound, other times blossoming into near Savage Republic's tribal post punk, but always shadowy and grey, and darkly dreamlike. Female vocals scream and wail in a P.I.L. ethno mood, then tenderly echo and whisper hauntingly meditative gloom-ragas, over a bed of roiling dark drones, and softly churning guitar reverb. Woozy melodies, bleed and blur into softly undulating sonic tapestries, sometimes tethered to a spare, skeletal rhythm, but often left to float weightless in a sprawl of drowsy shimmer. As the band builds forth, the sound eventually builds to a heavier psych-kraut drift, and then swifts into some rhythmic jam rock, all deep bass drones, pounding drumming, thick murky riffage, eventually launching into EARTH's doomy introspective acid freak-out groove.

Musically, what REVERSED NATURE really display on this album is a contemporary woozy and warped psychedelic jam rock. It's a beautiful work that continually rewards -the more we listen. The perfect soundtrack to a moonlit desert beneath a field of stars.

Due to popular demand, we just repressed of one of our instant sold-outs: KIKAGAKU MOYO's debut release. If you wonder how a geometrical pattern sounds, imagine an effortless floating sonic carpet, combining classic 60s folk and psych elements (especially in their more quiet parts where the sitar blends with flowing distorted guitars and audio effects), with a somewhat more heavy progressive feel in the tradition of the early 70s bands which flourished in their homeland (Flower Travelling Band and Love, Live, Life + One in particular). A sound that hovers lazily over the past and expands itself in order to reach today in a precise and energetic way. So timeless!

The new pressing is limited to 500 copies total and comes in three different releases:

a. Special colour edition (100 copies): 22 € Black with splattered white vinyl + silk-screened cover
