Mantric Muse is instrumental space rock from Denmark who have been around since 1998 and all of the member play in Øresund Space Collective occasionally as well. Quite good.

This new live album by Øresund Space Collective came out a few weeks ago, mellow, relaxing, spacey… I would have thought by this time the space/jam sound would have gotten repetitive or stale, but no, ØSC delivers yet again with this album, starting out low and gradually building up momentum as it progresses. Perfect session music. Enjoy.
Wow, that was a long week. Topping it off, someone gave me a pill Tuesday, I ate it, and woke up next to my ex, which did nothing to improve the week or my opinion of random pills. But it’s over and time for another Streaming Sunday, so here is ØSC’s latest release from a show they played in Jenna, Germany last year. Space Rock, Jam Band, collective… These guys just get better and better, enjoy.
Here, is one of the few digital albums I’ll pay money for dispite my views against doing so. Mainly because some music is just too good to pass up. I’ve been a huge fan of this space rock jam band comprised of Danish Swedish and American musicians, which was likely already pretty clear judging by the number of post I’ve written about them. So, Monday I promised a live Øresund Space Collective post, and here it is, Cafe Cairo 10/20/2012, and so far this is my favorite live album of the bunch they released back in July of last year. The sound quality is good and the band is playing spaced out jams, there’s not much else to say, Dr. Space is the man, 95%, enjoy.
Sitting here in the ambience of a crappy show and overweight Central Floridians I have to note the cosmic flow of Øresund Space Collective’s latest release. This is their 16th release and it leans more towards the psychedelic side of the spectrum than space, which isn’t absent by any means, just more subdued in this release. A studio album recorded in the Black Tornado studios in Copenhagen in April of 2012 that is good, very good, but this is a Space jam band. This is more a collector’s item, kind of the way most band’s live albums are collected mainly by the hardcore fans and are the lesser known works. It’s good, just not the sound that ØSC is known for.
Anyway, this latest release is still a superb blending of artists… unlike this show which hasn’t even started yet other than the bearded dorks drooling over fat chicks. This must be a Rockabilly show because it looks like a suicide bomber hit a make-up factory.
Drunken tirade aside, Organic Earthly Floatation is stellar, 86%, however this album is almost a tease, hinting at their soaring and epic live space jams that go on for hours, so, Friday’s post will cover one of ØSC’s live releases.
Ohh wow, big suprise, $3.00 cover to see drums and fucking hipsters 45 minutes after the “show” was advertised to start. This is like the nexus of rattails and chicks with no make-up that I would likely get alcohol poisoning before I wanted to have intercourse with them… Cheap cigarettes don’t make those girls any more attractive, either.
Besides for the girls that my dog won’t hump and the guys those girls won’t screw, this show sucks. I think that I just paid three dollars to rip on people I don’t know.
That show was so unimpressive and completely Orlando-Rattail that I left after one beer in favor of playing Vice City on the iPad instead of looking at an empty stage.
So, here instead is Øresund Space Collective, Entering into the Space Country from 2011 featuring a guitarist of fame, specifically whose fame I am totally unaware of, that of Hurdy Gurdy and Secret Oyster… Killer guitar riffs and, of course, properly spacey, this is a great release, 89%.
That said, the matter of GTA Vice City 10th anniversary edition and the sporadic posts still remain to be properly addressed; The posts have skipped days because work has picked up and there have been fewer albums that I felt compelled to talk about, though ØSC is always a good backup, always putting out awesome space jams. And, as this album demonstrate, there are mounds of great European artists out there that I have never heard of, so there will be more regular posts forthcoming, including a new Nutty Cock n Nuts sodomy ‘zine which I will be sure to share as soon as I collect my mail.
Vice City; I forgot how fun this game was. The controls for the iPad leave a touch to be desired, but not much. Overall this is the exact same game, with the addition that you can use the tape deck in the cars! That is to say you make a playlist entitled “vicecity” and while driving a car switch the radio to “tape deck” and your playlist plays as part of the game! And all the maps for the hidden packages, rampages, free weapons, police stars are readily available. The only negative I can note is that the opening introduction films for GTA 3 made it crash every time, so now for Vice City I just skip past the intro, but this is the same great game we all know and love. Highly recommended.
Space rock jam collective out of the Netherlands, Øresund Space Collective has been posted here several times before, however the music is so stellar that it demands attention.
I have been getting a bit burnt on metal, and then I remembered Øresund Space Collective and found this album of theirs on bandcamp that had been released earlier this year.
For those who don’t know, ØSC is a jam band collective playing spaced-out music, and as a collective there is a revolving and constantly changing line-up of artists who play. And, it is all improve too. It consists of artists from Sweden and Denmark (sometimes the US also) and I can honestly say that of the 14 albums they have released I don’t dislike any.
This is the smallest the collective has ever been with just three musicians. The recording is a couple of years old, released in March of this year, I can honestly say that it is one of my favorite albums of the year blending Eastern influenced drone with their space-jam style earning it a 90% rating. There is little to complain about in this record if one is into this style and format of music, enjoy.
And a page out of an old NCnNSz-
Once again we have the Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation, this time with their third release Anthropomorphic which has a deep spacey feel to it in addition to the doom infused jazz that is their signature sound.
