FZ006: Earthling Society, “Sci-Fi Hi-Fi”

Speakers play alien comm in static slate grey hum. DIY antennae through broken windows tune into lysergic frequencies. Earthling Society have, with their new album, tried to fly higher than pilots have flown. Six journey songs reveal a glorious new far out paranoid phase for the group. More progressive and kraut-informed than before. Calling to the night owls with their urban late night drives and desert trips. Liquid synths and flying saucer guitars play a different kind of space rock. It’s the space between your ears where the lotus wheel suspends. turning and turning, never ends….

Now it’s time… Crack open a can of UBIK, sit back, relax and turn on the SCI-FI HI-FI
