Pauw – Macrocosm Microcosm


Pauw – Macrocosm Microcosm
Caroline – 2015
Rock, Psych
Rated: ***

Look at the print on their blouses come alive and all those gigantic flying creature in the air. What’s happening? Did the mescaline kick in? I remembered being in a barnyard in the outskirt of the Twente region of the Netherlands. Watching four young cats do something wonderful on their instruments. Pauw, (Dutch for Peacock) is able to produce some fine old fashioned psychedelic rock. As if we are transported to The Matrix club in San Francisco in the late sixties where these guys would have fit in nicely. Between slots by Jefferson Airplane, Grateful Dead and Moby Grape. Yes, on their debut album Macrocosm Microcosm the boys definitely know how to paint those kandy-kolored-kaleidoscopic pictures. And with songs like Shambhala and Visions they will surely also be able to get the rest of the rock loving world’s attention. Perhaps a little bit too sweet most of the time, but then again, Love was the operative word at that place and time in the world, whatever it meant. So, for better or worse, Pauw tries to re-ignite that spark. That universal sense of knowing that we are right…
