MP3: Here!

Aqua Nebula Oscillator.
A hefty chunk of Europe's prehistoric rockpainting is found on French cave walls and it has to be *nearly* true that Aqua Nebula Oscillator were raised in those very caves. This is *primitive* acid garage punk. The band sound like a hot woman cave decorated with peacock feathers. Dirty, psychedelic garage sounds with an oscillator set to attack.. like Gonn ('Blackout of Gretely') meets '73 Hawkwind.
Spotlight Kid
On There’s A Reason Why the band takes shoegazing down the psychedelic meets krautrock path with the girl/boy backing vocals used to great effect. This is a great little EP worthy of some of your listening time.
The band used a larger amount of electronics and the eternal quest for hallucinatory experimentation has made the music span a sligthly wider range, transcending musical styles like neofolk, psychedelic, space rock and electronica.
Lower Heaven
Absorbing and reinterpreting influences like My Bloody Valentine, Hawkwind, and the Jesus and Mary Chain, the band has been able to defy constraints of genre classification by keeping the song writing, arrangement, instrumentation, and production of their work unconventional and innovative.
Voice Of The Seven Thunders
The tone and temperament of Tomlinson's material has shifted, moving emphasis from ornate psychedelic folk to more assertive, electrified rock variants often verging on fuzz-strewn bluesy ragas. 'Kommune' strides its way through a chunk of rollicking '70s kosmische with a slew of searing leads - something continued with even greater period flair on 'The Burning Mountain', a monstrously good track whose modal wah-wah workouts immediately draw up links to the kind of psych-rock Finders Keepers compilations tend to dig up.
