Jesse Holt Get high, throw on some good headphones, take off to the astral plane and give these guys a spin. Favorite track: The Sky Is Falling Down.

DenpaFuzz one of those albums that any psychedelic lover shouldn't miss. Describing its particular magical world, the themes make us forget about the turbulent times we live in order to rise to a sensory dimension in which everything floats in an ethereal way, relaxing our senses and providing us with a rewarding journey.Full review:

joopkonraad They make it sound like it’s all happening once again; that perfect era in music history; that lovely sixties and seventies vibe. The restrained virtuosity gleams with every casual ripple of sound. And only when listened more and often does the subtle brilliance open itself complete to your ears and to your heart.

thedrumstick Holy Monitor has become my favorite alternative rockband. I've followed them since I heard the amazing debut. This album has the same intensity as the previous, but with its own flavour.
Lots of love from Denmark.

River 06:03
Take me back down by the river Lights are on One billion stars Falling like eternal raindrops Bright as the sun Balmy and quiet as the night Have you seen the girl with the white dress She once was a dweller in this land Bathing her hair down by the river Bright as the sun Balmy and quiet as the night
2.
Who stole the sun Who hides the skyline Who won't believe in fate Who rules the weather child Naked in the rain And you shine on shine on Who celebrates In the cloudy sunrise Who envies your days Who rules the weather child Naked in the rain And you shine on shine on

Blue Whale 03:55
When she was a child of the water Breathing with the lungs of a blue whale She was swimming on for a long long time When she was a ghost in the closet Hiding from the eyes of the living She was only moving through the night When she was the eye of the winter Watching from the top of the mountain She would stay awake for a long long time When she was the sand in an hourglass You could tell that she was slipping fast She was only moving through the time She was in my mind
4.
Close the door Now I know where I belong Come inside Breathe the air out of the earth Ocean rolls Waves are higher than the eye In your palms I can see the southern lights
5.
In the morning I woke up Couldn't tell if there was God Was there Buddha or Allah People called an ambulance It sounds like madness But I know it that you're feeling lonely It sounds like madness But we're falling in a state of slumber It sounds like madness But we're dancing what we're pushing under It sounds like madness But we're turning and the sky is falling down This is not a call from earth They are living in my head In the water where I swim Poisoning the air I breathe

Ocean Trail 04:51
I've been walking through the land With the ocean on my mind Never stopped to think again If the ocean wasn't there Ocean Trail I've seen every morning sun I've seen every worn out stone Till my eyes had seen enough And the ocean was a blur Ocean trail
8.
I travelled days till I saw the water Lost my belongings blown by the wind In all directions that I have wandered And left my body under the sea Under the sea One summer night a stranger approached me Like people did before they got sick He touched my hand and told me his story I always had curiosity Curiosity Under the sea
