Review by Gary Hill

I really dig the trippy space sounds on this set. It's perhaps closer to something like Hawkwind than any of their other sets I've heard are. There are plenty of other things here, too, though.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2016  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Soundpool

Trippy space rock elements start things out in style. This is somewhat short, less than six minutes, and very spacey and freeform. It turns to more rocking stuff later.

Laila Ii
Here we get another cool space rocker. I love the Hawkwind meets space and more sound of this. Tbere is some great trippy psychedelia at play here. I really love the jamming on this cut.
Looping IV
This comes in fairly mellow and very trippy. It's quite sparse. It has gradual building. It's an odd, but intruiging piece of music. It does get into more rocking territory later in the number. There is a long period of silence at the end of this.
Schwingspule
Trippy atmospherics open this and move it forward. This thing gets pretty freaky. Some cool, more rocking stuff emerges later as this piece continues its exploration. It dissolves into some really spacey weirdness later in the piece.
