Lamagaius (Sound Effect)
Rock / Pop
Purple vinyl, 200 copies.
Sound Effect Records proudly present the long awaited, re-mastered reissue, on vinyl and CD, of
Lamagaia's debut album! "Lamagaius" has previously been released as a cassette in 2013 and on
vinyl in 2015, both with unmastered sound, both very hard to find collectors' items. Now,
"Lamagaius" has received the re-mastering treatment of Athens' Ekelon and is ready to reveal its
mantra-like quality to the ears of more unsuspecting music-heads around the globe. The
Gothenburg-based Swedes just released their self-titled sophomore album to an ecstatic core of
fans of modern space/kraut/drone-psych sounds, however, "Lamagaius", with its 28-minutessingle-
track "strategy" set the template for what was to follow! As they, themselves comment: "this
recording of Lamagaius was made when the song was still very new, and not really fixed in a solid
form. We like to record like that. It gives room for improvising without fear of ruining some pre-set
vision. That way, the song gets to have a say about its own shape." "Lamagaius" will be released as
a limited edition black vinyl, a limited edition purple vinyl and a limited CD edition, in a custom
made "discfolio" case on May 26th.
"... it is as if the track has been somehow gestating in some sort of kosmische womb waiting for the
right moment to present itself. .. this is not the random twiddling of a new band finding its way, but
a fully formed slice of space drone music that can and will inveigle its way into your brain and
make the world somehow feel better." (www.backseatmafia.com)
"....the flow and the depth of the kosmische experience is so entrancing. Flashes of feedback,
washes of cosmic synths and stabs of almost surf-like guitar are all added to the mix...but it's that
rhythm....never missing a beat and keeping the whole track together. If this was released as a lost
Neu! track, people would be falling over themselves to get to it....it's that good."
