The press release reads:
Mecanica Celeste is the third official recording by South
American space rockers Serpentina Satelite.
After the success of their last raved about album Nothing
to Say, the band returned to their studio in Peru to record
this more ambitious and accomplished sounding follow-up.
The album recalls all the great psychedelic bands from the
past forty years, from the 70’s bands like Ash Ra Tempel,
Amon Düül II and Hawkwind; through to 80’s bands like
Monster Magnet (particularly TAB era) and Loop and
todays contemporary cosmic warlords like Eternal Tapestry,
White Hills and Magic Lantern.
Mecanica Celeste is a conceptually unique take on
psychedelia, conceived by manipulating traditional religious
songs, text ideology and poetry with heavy fuzz guitars,
swirling drones, spaced out wah solos, motorik rhythms
and delayed vocals, to create a head melting experience of
an album which climaxes with the proto metal riffs of track
Sendero, giving the band a fresh sounding approach to the
well trod grounds of space rock: Serpentina Satelite tried
to get to heaven but ended up in space!
Since the birth of the band in late 2003, they have honed
their free-fall haze of fuzz and feedback to diverse stages
in the cloudy city of Lima. The band look forward to cross
the Atlantic very soon in order to bring their sun damaged
cosmic psych to the unexpecting European audience.
Here is a taster from the new album:
