Definitely on the poppier side of psychedelic rock, but hey, psych rock isn't all about tripping balls on acid. This one is more like some mild weed, the one that lifts your mood, but doesn't shoot you all the way into the stratosphere. You're still flying with Crystal Maverick, but as the track name suggests, it's a mellow hot air balloon ride, not a space rocket flight. And I'm a huge reverb fetishist, so the gentle, tasteful use of this effect really works for me. Great job!
Utterly strange, yet very compelling and emotional. While the idea of combining blues lyrics with fried, glitched-out electronics may seem terrible on paper, in practice it works - imagine Jandek replacing his guitar with some cheap synthesizers and you get Claus Zinger. And those organ licks are ACE!
Deeply cinematic, plodding rusted industrial rock that has some hidden love for massive guitar drones. echoing riffs and distorted Teutonic ambience. It makes a killer theme song with its catchy choruses and crystalline production which still manages to pack a punch. Quite thrilling.
