Freak Out In Space, Baby!

After I published the following Øresund Space Collective albums The Black Tomato, Inside Your Head and Good Planets Are Hard To Find it's time for their self-title debute album. Again this album doesn't disappiont. Freak out in space, baby!

The Øresund Space Collective was formed in April 2004. The collective is a group of Danish, Swedish and American musicians that get together as often as possible for free form improvised space rock music. The flavour of the music is different with each session. The jams can often combine complex interplay between guitar and synthesizer as well intense drumming and bass playing. We enter into the genre of funk, jazz, reggae and space rock as we improvise our way along. The jam sessions alternate between Malmö and København across the Øresund bridge! The core of the collective features current and former members of the Danish bands Mantric Muse and Gas Giant as well as the Swedish bands Bland Bladen. Occasionally other musicians join as well from other Swedish band like the Carpet Knights and Sgt. Sunshine. Mantric Muse is an all instrumental progressive psychedelic space rock band, who has recorded an CD-EP entitled, Picks in Space and a full length CD, called Kap Næb (currently looking for a label to release it). The band has played concerts in and around København for the last 6 years. Gas Giant are an internationally known heavy psychedelic space rock band, who have toured all over Europe and have released several albums, with the latest called Mana. Bland Bladen, are a progressive instrumental space rock band based in Malmö, Sweden. The band released a debut CD-R in 2004on their own and has played mainly in Sweden but also in København (with Mantric Muse). The collective records all of the jam sessions and makes these available to fans via the web site in MP3 format. We currently have over 20 hours of material on the web site for free download. The band has released 10 limited edition CD's with the best of the jam sessions. The band records in the studio every 6-8 months and plans to release several CDs a year. Our first CD came out in Jan 2006 on Transubstans Records in Malmo, Sweden
