CD/DVD Releases: ?resund Space Collective Release New CD

Posted on Thursday, February 26 @ 04:27:42 UTC by nightowl

The ?resund Space Collective announce the release of their new CD Good Planets Are Hard To Find (Transubstans 044). This is the 5th CD by the all improvised space rock band from the Copenhagen-Malm? region of Scandinavia (?resund). It was recorded at the Black Tornado Studios in November 2007 and featured new members on drums, percussion, bass, guitar and sitar that had never been in the studio with the band before. The dynamics and vibe was different and KG from the band Siena Root played some amazing sitar on the opening and closing pieces of music on the CD. We think you will find the music has a more progressive and melodic element and is less spacey than our previous releases. The same cool vibe and long journeys await the patient listener.

The CD was mixed by Steve Hayes (Secret Saucer) in the USA. Steve also provides an synthesizer solo on "Orbital Elevator" to replace one that Mogens played when his synthesizer went out of tune. Steve has different ears and different gear so the mix is unique. The band allowed Steve full freedom in the mix process, so he actually becomes more a part of the musical project, so to speak. The CD was mastered to give a nice round but intense rich sound by Henrik Udd, who had mixed and mastered the band?s previous 2 albums.

The band on this release was: KG - sitar, guitar; Tobias - guitars; Mogens - Hammond and synthesizers; Jocke and Thomas - bass; PIB - drums; Luz - percussion; Dr. Space - synthesizers.

The band has played the Kildemose Festival, headlined the Slottskoggen goes Progressive Festival and also played the Space Rock Odyssey 2008 Festival in Uppsala in 2008. Currently, the band has plans to play gigs in Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Norway, in March and April 2009. The band will also play the Kildemose Festival in June and headline on the Friday night. We hope to be able to play in Germany in the summer.
