4 stars Hello Out There ! Now here is a simply awesome mind melting experience that simply blew me away and will do the same for you. This 2 member Portuguese psychedelic progressive rock outfit play some of the best Avant-Garde music I think have ever heard. SATURNIA are keyboardist/bassist/programmer Francisco Rebelo and singer/songwriter/multi- instrumentalist Luis Simoes. Self-confessed vinyl junkie and Audiophile Luis Simões came up with the wonderful concept of making a CD sound like a piece of vinyl... Complete throughout with hiss and vinyl ticks you would think you old turntable is spinning. "The Glitter Odd" is firmly in the psychedelic realm, though lots of fun spacey synths are prominent with Dubs. Tribal influenced percussion, freaky bleeping space synths, organ, sampled flute, sitar, Theremin, floating vocals, and other sound effects. Sonically this album is magical offering a pretty steady drone tempo throughout while blending a mix of classic Psychedelia, spacey ambient vibes and 70's prog flavoured organ. Kind of a mix of PINK FLOYD, TANGERINE DREAM, MOGWAI and This SPACIOUS MIND.
