UFO Över Lappland – UFO Över LapplandPosted: January 5, 2017
[ Fluere Tapes, 2016 ]
There’s one thing I’ve noticed missing in the blog posts lately: ROCK!!! Be it psych, kraut, space or stoner rock – this blogs needs MORE of that! The counter-electronic offensive starts with a tape from the Swedish band UFO Över Lappland with its heavy metal umlaut showing promise of some amplifier worship. Well, it’s not exactly super-heavy, but it’s definitely super-heady! The steady, krauty rhythm is about the only thing that anchors them to solid ground – everything else is far out in space, baby! Fuzzy, overdriven, reverbed, it’s all about meaty basslines and trippy distortions! That’s what psych rock should be all about, a sound to get completely lost in and stop giving a fuck about the outside world. Highly recommended!
