acid mothers temple & the melting paraiso u.f.o

We are celebrating Acid Mothers Temple’s return to North America by honoring them with a new release, their fourth for the label. The band toured North America in early spring 2009 in support of “Lord of the Underground: Vishnu and the Magic Elixir.” The album is made up entirely of new studio recordings that have documented the band in fine form. The band is flying at full speed dishing out 3 slabs of Turkish Psych meets Krautrock, served up Acid Mothers Temple style. “Lord of the Underground” will see the light of day on both limited edition vinyl and CD.

Continuing on their winning streak,
Acid Mothers Temple bringing their J-psych alchemy to Alien8, dispensing three new pieces. 'Eleking The Clay' begins with some church-like organ figures, ushering in a bit of a Keith Emerson vibe before the guitars kick into an echoing drone-raga, venturing into some outlandishly protracted fuzzed up riffing hinging on Eastern harmonies. Offering a brief interlude, 'Sorcerer's Stone Of The Magi' arrives with a hushed, folksy and acoustic feel, washing your ears out in time for the epic 'Vishnu And The Magic Elixir' a sludgy, meandering twenty-five minutes that holds off the overdrive pedals for a good twelve minutes or so, spending time delving into deep, dark sixties weirdness laden with sitars and cavernous acoustics. When the band do hit their stride you get the obligatory fuzz solo payoff with plenty of far-out blues licks and all those trademark AMT oscillator sweeps.

Hi Folks,

Sorry to clog up your comments... We’re fellow bloggers, We’re Late For Class. Since 2007, we’ve posted 39 releases of FREE live improvisation and experimental/psychedelic music on our blog... just for the heck of it.

We’ve just released #40 Another Collection, a free 2-CD best of collection and we wanted to see what you thought (Rolling Stone doesn’t seem to be interested). A link in your blogroll would mean a lot to us, as that’s our only source of blog traffic.

You’re also welcomed to post #40 Another Collection for your readers, if you’d like. We’ve even made it easy by creating a page of codes to our nifty animated, future of online rock n roll cover, MP3 players (your readers can listen to it all on YOUR blog) and even a short write up about us you can use (or abuse or edit) if you don’t have the time to indulge in 2-CDs worth of stoner mayhem.

Let us know what you think. We’ll be happy to post links for you in our blogroll and, in the future, when our species comes to rule this planet, your name will be on the protected scrolls so that no harm will come to you.

Thanks in advance,
We’re Late For Class
