Electric Funeral Cafe – Vol. II


Electric Funeral Cafe – Vol. II
Robust Fellow / Iron Hamster – 2015
Rock, Stoner, Sludge, Psych, Doom
Rated: ****

Want to learn about all the good stuff coming from the Ukraine? Want to have a one stop, shop and get wicked out of your mind on great music from that country? Head on over to the Robustfellow bandcamp and get your drink on in the Electric Funeral Café… It is the second volume of the compilation and sports no less than 41 tracks! 41 amazing tracks even. All in the genre’s we all love so dearly. Stoner, sludge and psychedelic rock. To be honest, I only knew a handful of the bands featuring on the compilation. So it was quite a treat and a damn fine surprise to hear opener Pit Viper for instance. And the amazing second track by Slow Action! And your mouth keeps dropping for the entire first part called the Electric Side. Grade A heavy psychedelic rock and stoner extravaganza which ends with a lovely live track by the wonderful Somali Yacht Club. And then we start on part two: the Funeral Side. This is ofcourse the darker and more ominous side. Doomy and charcoal overdrive mixed with slow riffs and battering sludge. But even then there are those psychedelic moments and trickles of light, like we already hear in that first Borum track. Another bonus of this wild collection is that some of the tracks have been exclusively delivered for this very release. It showcases to astounding degree the quality of the Ukrainian underground! There’s something burning over there, burning with electric wildfire and it requires your attention…
