Farflung - This Capsule (2018)
The eight album from this US band.
The band was a quintet with a lineup of synths, guitars, bass, drums and vocals.
A guest vocalist appeared on one of the tracks.
I have previously reviewed two album by this band back in November 2016 for # 1 of this blog.
Albums I liked a lot.
The band delivers a mix of space-rock, post rock, post metal and krautrock on this album... and on their previous seven albums too.
The band is primary a space rock band.
There is a lot of inter-galaxy flights on this album. There is also a lot of post rock light and shadows type of music too. There is a lot of variations on this album with some weird vocals and rhythms. There is also elements of avant-garde rock here.
The music is a times very melodic, but also still edgy and spaced out.
The end result is a fifty minutes long good album fans of space rock should check out. Farflung is one of the better bands in that genre and they deserve a lot more attention.
Check out this album.
