About this item
Brand new studio full length from Bristol based sike-o-nauts, orbiting in the Heads’ realm and led by Heads’ Simon Price.
For fans of: Popul Vuh, Parson Sound, Amon Duul, Neu!, The Heads, Spacemen 3, Harmonia, Moon Duo, Carlton Melton, Fripp & Eno.
k3 continues the trajectory of outer space excursions found on previous kandodo releases.
Recorded over the past three years and aided by fellow Heads types H O Morgan and Wayne Maskell, this album was recorded in Bristol and on Price’s 4 track.. Mastered once again at Optimum by Shawn Joseph.
Out of focus, relaxed and expansive vibes fuse together into serpentine rivers of minimalist rhythms and echoed tones, drawing the listener into tunnels of sound and scorched sonic landscapes.
It's one for the headphones at 30,000 feet or late night deserted drives.
k3 finds three heads taking time out to dive into the dronal repetitions of deep space, 3 psychonauts killing time in the only way they know how; head-nodding drumfuzz layered with creamed strings. Guest guitar from fellow sike-head John McBain on the final half of the 40 minute trip which makes up sides 3 and 4.
k3 takes the autobahn, veering left past the sun and heading on till morning. There are no black holes 'cos we're in it: just do the half. The colours will come back with the dawn.
Settle in for the long haul and ….
Barry says: Hazy sun-dappled ambient psychedelia doesn't come any more satisfying than this, with slow-mo Earth-like progressions and weighty clean guitar plucks meander over a satisfyingly hypnotic undercurrent of staggered distorted bass and whirling sine waves. Properly hypnotic stuff here, perfect for phasing out in the sunshine.
