Titan – “Titan” – [Paradigms Recordings]

Titan is a four piece project from Brooklyn, NY, specializing in massive jams. So why are all the song titles in German? Probably because these guys worship the lords of Kraut rock . This is some straight psychedelia from outer space, complete with a perpetual synth drone and plenty of laser gun sounds (which are kinda cheesy sometimes..). The synthesizer totally dominates here, making for a shimmering, oscillating, bubbling sort of soundscape. Combined with an abundance of face melting guitar solos and driving beats, this makes for an otherworldly,involuntarily meditative sonic experience. Its all about the build up here. 4 minutes of drone ease into track 1 which is an epic psych-journey, delivering about 18 minutes of sticky jam. track 2 (my personal pick) is a stellar freak out. Track 3 starts with almost 5 minutes of drone and brings some extra bloopy synth-scapes to the party. Dig it. -Surfer Rosa
