Lumerians - Call of the Void (2018)
The fifth album from this US band.
The band is a quartet with a lineup of guitars, keyboards, drums, bass, percussion and vocals.
Back in July 2013, I reviewed their 2013 album The High Frontier and liked that album. You can read the review here.
Lumerians plays fuzzy psychedelic prog and space rock. That according to what they write themselves.
I would agree with that. But there is a very strong krautrock influence on this album and it can be argued that this album is indeed a krautrock album.
There is some of the krautrock weirdness here in some of the vocal tracks and the melodies. Yes, kraurock fans will like this album..... a lot.
The music is spacey and hypnotic with a lot of fuzz and ambience too. The vocals adds some more earthly feel to this album. And those vocals are not a bad thing. They adds a lot of colours to this album. A pretty dreamy album which takes the listener far away to another galaxy.
This is a good album which I really like a lot and value. Check out this album and this band too.
