Distant Spore Records
First of all let me say that I owe a big apology to the Occult Stereo for this long delay. Occult Stereo is a more personal band of Alex Eliopoulos, a Greek guy who live in Usa, whom we had met through the Impuritan band. Here, he plays a number of instruments and is accompanied by several musicians from the USA and Germany. Plasma, which was recorded last year, is an idiosyncratic album in which the sounds seem improvised, random, while at the same time sounding completely balanced! They are psychedelic, they are experimental, they are pop, sometimes they remind me of Zappa, and all these dress them with passion in the now while at the same time they travel you to previous decades. Liber Xaos, which opens the album, begins with the guitars electrically tuning the moods before the track transforms into a more electroacoustic folk, and the highly atmospheric Canadian Bees, which sounds like it's trying to seduce you with its magical aura which emits, as if electrified mushrooms pass in front of you and magnetize all your senses. I think a contact with Occult Stereo will be beneficial for your souls!
