KFJC Music Reviews
Von Himmel means ???Of Sky??? in German, but these space heads probably don???t even speak Deutsch much less are Deutsche themselves.?? Hell, outside English, Germanic language escapes me almost entirely so translations become as mysterious as the identity of Von Himmel???s band members & their whereabouts.?? Obviously, their song titles suggest a supreme fascination with celestial bodies, galaxies beyond and interstellar regions of dark matter & plasma clouds drifting about the universe.?? Sonically, their sound stretches out for the heavens as well.?? It???s a trippy & progressively unsettling voyage into the unknown.?? This floating psychedelic cosmos is electron charged with echo & delay effects, stoney cymbal hissing impulses and blown out harmonic resonations.?? Once launched into orbit this first track hovers, crawls lethargically, intensifies, subsides, expands & contracts as though it were on some elliptical collision course into some black hole void.?? Second track evens the tension, riding the interstellar highway smoothly with phased out effects in ascending & descending waves.?? Last track explores the furthest points of the galaxy sifting into macrocosmic meditative ambient spaces.?? Damn fine German, er??? Alien sci-fi psychedelia.????????????????????
Von Himmel is the greatest cozzzzmic experience this side of the universe.
destroy your ego orbit the groove down with music up with space
