GOBUZLI - psychedelic rock from England

GOBUZLI

Compositions leave the listener more perplexed than when they started as GOBUZLI deliver intense globules of dreamscapes to explore. Unashamedly challenging, the whole packaging is wrapped in confusion, however that isn’t to say that what reached the ears isn’t a pleasure, as it most certainly is.


Whilst tripping out on aural magic mushrooms, the listener is not left in wandering monologues of vacuous egoism, as the tracks are composed to deliver a purpose, which, whilst difficult to fathom, is discernible and in my view it is worth suspending rationale thought-process to allow the brain to flow with the output. Pieces can be nibbled in isolation, but the real experience comes from taking big mouthfuls of the psychotropics and spend plenty of time, listening to tracks careening one off the other and their ten track LP Abstract Origami Black Belt is as good a place to start as any.

Although having been around a few years GOBUZLI seems to have had a stop start experience and I for one hope they will be able to find some continuity and unleash more of their thoughts on an unsuspecting world in short order. You can tell I enjoyed this as it has taken me until the final sentence to comment on the pesky capitalisation.

Sweet Jane - rock from Eire

Sweet Jane

You are left with the feeling Sweet Jane is the music that Hawkwind would have put together had they had a tighter reign. There is a potent chameleonic wave of tempos and sounds that drift lazily across the room, billowing progressively, to create music that completely wraps the head in its various textures.


Whilst the music is multi-layered with a range of sounds meeting the ears, it is not confusing, allowing the listener to relate to the out-put and become involved. Sweet Jane is a group of well versed musicians who handle their compositions gently, allowing the widely spaced refrains plenty of time to express themselves before blending in the next phrase, which gives the tracks fluidity and creating the over all effect of music that is emerging from smoke.

It was a few months ago that Dan, from the independent label Reekus Records, also based in Dublin, made contact, but this occasion, the slow progression from email to review suits the music well and I look forward to spending time in the future held by the soft embrace of Sweet Jane.
