Spaceslug – Time Travel Dilemma
Self released – 2017
Space Rock, Stoner, Psychedelic, Doom
Spaceslug launch their rocket from Poland and bravely explore the outer limits of known space and beyond with fuzz boxes on full power. Jamming riffs collide with psych rock and explode with stoner/doom songs that get the head nodding while taking you on trip into your mind. These tracks, on Time Travel Dilemma, have a desert laden groove with atmospherics that make you think of psychedelic space rock. Hypnotic riffs and solos drive the songs along, aided by the sun-blissed rhythm section. Drones that swirl around song passages are used to great effect and push the tracks along rather than just being an after-thought. The guitars weave long mantras of warm fuzzed soundscapes that make you want to play over and over again. With a genuine feel for the genre, Spaceslug invite you into their world - but be warned - when the groove gets groovin' and the kraut-rocks riffs get riffing, you might not want to leave!
