Whenever the good Doktor420 gives us a tip we get all giddy inside and take it to heart, for we know that he has that guru ability. After which we delve headfirst into the music that he pointed us towards. In this case, the four-track debut album by Yuri Gagarin. Five Swedes from Gothenburg that deliver some excellent, enigmatic and colorful spacerock. The instrumental goodness they bring forth from the outskirts of the galaxy is simply irresistible. The multiple synth loops, waves, layers, drones and zooms make it a true space race adventure. And then there’s the cosmonaut riffage and exploring by the two guitars and the afterburner commanded by the bassplayer; which are truly inspirational. Complex, supersonic and mystical. For there’s some weird energy surrounding this release. It has something ancient and futuristic rolled into one and seems to have the blessing of the Gods…
