Rocket Probes MAY 2009 Playlist

‘Here is a list of some of the strongest transmissions we have received from orbiting satellites that have been engulfing Rockets mission control this past month’

Loop - Fade Out (2nd CD, reissue)
(looped guitars, blown out distorted buzz, krautrocky rhythms, cyclical, repetitive, hypnotic,dripping with effects)

Soft Machine - Middle Earth Masters
(1967 organ solo's shimmering, rumbling and roaring punk psychedelia)

The Inner Space - Agilok & Blubbo (OST)
(tripped out, acid soaked, free-pop-jazz-rock odyssey)

Titan - Pilzmarmelade
(relentlessly energetic, howling throbbing groove)

Valerio Cosi - Heavy Electronic Pacific Rock
(synthesized grooves & raga kraut-y beats, free jazz, avant-garde, kraut minimalism)

This Heat - Made Available (John Peel Sessions)
(Krautrock-ish hyper rhythmic tape-looped prog)

Brother JT – Vibrolux
(full of amazing fuzz wah pop drones ala Spacemen 3, screen printed and hand numbered to 500 copies)

Animal Collective – Merriweather Post Pavilion
(it took a few listens, but after initial disappointment this could become album of the year)

Oneida – Rated O
(woah!!!!!!!, treble LP of ‘O’,we're still shaking!!!!)

Thunderbolt Pagoda – S/T
(still listening to this record, a good mix a psych, kraut and free rock)
