Ozric Tentacles // Space For The Earth

Snapper Music



Description

Limited Edition, 180 Gram Vinyl, Turquoise, Indie Exclusive, United Kingdom - Import. Written, programmed, recorded, and produced throughout 2019/20 by Ed Wynne in 'Blue Bubble Studios' by the sea, this exploratory and diverse musical adventure comprises seven new tracks spanning 45 minutes. Inspired by the Scottish hills, valleys, and beaches surrounding his studio, Wynne feels that lockdown in a strange kind of way has provided 'Space For The Earth' to breathe for a while and for people to rediscover its resonant healing frequency. 'This is space music for people from the Earth to enjoy'. Ozrics' synth player Silas Neptune and drummer Balázs Szende join forces again with Wynne on the album which also features special guest appearances from former members synth player Joie Hinton, drummer Nick Van Gelder, flutist Champignon and percussionist Paul Hankin. Psychedelic voyager Gracerooms also contributes additional synth layers. The album ebbs and flows through blissed-out soundscapes featuring incendiary guitar solos, spaced grooves, and ambient atmospheres. Wynne plays his recently revived Ibanez Jem, a new 8-string guitar, all kinds of synths, and bass. Van Gelder uses the original snare he played on the first six cassette albums and early live Ozric performances. One tune features Champignon playing kaval, a traditional wooden Balkan flute. The album artwork was inspired directly by these seven tracks and realized by arboreal artist Kitty (Twisty-Trees) with help from Ed and cosmic artist Ivy. One of the most influential bands to emerge from the UK's festival scene, Ozric Tentacles formed during the solstice at Stonehenge Free Festival 1983 going on to become psychedelic staples at Glastonbury and other festivals. The creative vision of multi-instrumentalist Ed Wynne, the Ozrics' uniquely trippy soundscapes connect fans of progressive rock, psychedelia, and dance music culture. 'Space For The Earth' represents the next harmonic step in the unfolding Ozric journey.
