Samsara Blues Experiment - Demo 2008

From Aural Innovations January 2009 update

This is the new project from Chris (Terraplane) and it is very cool. The demo is only 2 tracks and like 22 minutes. Chris wrote a little note on the promo sheet, “Think Scott could fall in love with this”. He is not far off as I was pretty blown away. This is really cool. It starts off with Singata (Mystic Queen). Chris plays the guitar, sitar, synthesizer, organ and vocals. He is joined by Richard on bass and Thomas on the drums. The opening 8 minute track is killer. It starts with a little sitar but then a really cool slow stoned groove with some killer guitar. It reminded me of Causa Sui a bit. The next track has more sitar and is a slowly building track as well. The slow wall of sound is really cool. I would have liked a bit more effects on the vocals. Another great psychedelic rock track. I can not wait for the full record. Wow…
