Space Guerrilla – Boundless
Self released – 2014
Rock, Stoner, Space, Instrumental
It is the story of many a stonerrock outfit. Guys get together to jam in a dusty little cellar somewhere and record a few tracks and send them out into the world. More often than not they have merit and you are glad they did, sometimes you wish they hadn’t and on a few occasions you wish they had more or will come through with more soon. The release Boundless by the Brazilian trio Space Guerrilla is one of those occasions. The five instrumental tracks on this record are highly spacious stonerrock and infectious wide ranged psychedelic meanderings. Accompanied by soundclips that are pushed back in the mix to invoke a sense of mystery; the songs take on this otherworldly atmosphere. They soon have you envisioning endless starry nights and vibrating comets hailing the coming of something good. The drums crashing and thundering one moment and tribalistic and meandering the next. Guitars that wail, howl and slide but also riff and rock where needed and a bass that flows and follows and sets the course for the infinite space. Simply magnificent!
