Øresund Space Collective- Live at Circus Maximus, Koblenz 2013

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.


The marinade post and One Monstrous Ollie

Someone suggested that I post this recipe because it’s “yummy”, so here is a random post about food and video of some dude ollieing the epic flight of stairs in front of the Canadian embassy.
Beer Pork

Crystal hot sauce
Black pepper
Sea salt
Crushed red pepper
1 habanaro pepper
6 garlic cloves
1 bottle Brown ale
6 bottles Sierra Nevada Pale Ale

Take a large bowl and pour in the brown ale and grind in some sea salt, around a teaspoon.
Slice, chop, mince and or crush the garlic cloves and add to the bowl along with a decent amount of honey, like a tablespoon, along with the same amount of crushed red pepper.
Add pepper
Either 1/2 habanaro or 1 red chili or 4 Cheyenne pepper, finely sliced.
Add pork and allow marinade to set for ten minutes.
Warm up grill, (375)
Put the pork on the grill and liberally coat with the marinade and first bottle of Sierra Nevada, which goes into the cook.
Flip the pork after five full minutes and coat again with the marinade
After five more minutes flip again and rinse pork with the rest of the bottle of Sierra Nevada and open another
Keep flipping and rinsing with beer every five minutes, somewhere around 20 minutes you should consider pulling it off the grill, depending on the thickness of the meat. The goal is to pull it off exactly when the center is cooked. The longer it stays on the grill from that magical point it drys out quickly.

Øresund Space Collective to listen to while you cook.

I’ve been slacking, should have a pic of pork marinading here, but I haven’t made this recipe in a minute, but it is the summer grill recipe, and this post has been lurking around since last summer, so here is a pic of Orlando’s jump tree instead.

Streaming Sunday; Øresund Space Collective- Live At Black Night, Jenna (2013)

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.

Øresund Space Collective- Live at Cafe Cairo (10/20/2012)

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.



Oresund Space Collective- Organic Earthly Floatation (2013)

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.




Øresund Space Collective- West, Space and Love (2012)

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.

Øresund Space Collective- Entering into the Space Country (2010)

ØSC is a space-rock jam-band with American, Danish and Swedish musicians and bunches of other talented people from other bands sitting in on different sessions. They play unscripted spacey-jam-sessions, so songs aren’t repeated and I believe there are sound-checks that break the seven minute mark and sessions of more than two hundred minutes.
SpaceC pointed out that the name is derived from the bridge connecting Denmark and Sweden. Last FM explains how the sessions alternate between cities on either side of the bridge, thus the name.
It is mellow mood music and very listenable. They have a significant amount of work and most of it is available streaming over bandcamp, which is OK because it really isn’t music for being on the move anyway.
Also I am going to check out and post about some of the other bands mentioned in the Last FM biography since there seems to be a whole space/jam scene in northern Europe that I am relatively uninformed about, and if ØSC is an indicator there is a lot more good music to be found.
