SPECIAL COLLABORATOR PSIKE Team & Band Submissions
3 stars Gosh, how time flies! Meanwhile we are noticing the band's 25th anniversary! In the light of this event they have decided to release a double CD (on Fleisch) respectively tripple LP (via Adansonia). A good reason for a short retrospective at first. Originally initiated more as an experimental solo project, keyboarder Dirk Jan Müller started in 1992 recording and releasing songs. The album 'Cyberdelic' (1996) then manifested the begin of a very fruitful collaboration with Dirk Bittner, and the progress towards a real band. Both will represent the stable and congenial core furthermore. Josef Ahns (guitar, flute) then would follow as a steady member for some years, until, while continuing with the highly acclaimed 'Morbus' album in 2007, Tom Rückwald (bass) decided to enter the crew.

Since 2008 the current line up will be completed due to Georg Monheim. Deep respect to the previous drummers, but with his unique percussion style he definitely managed to add a special note to the band's sound. Musically ELECTRIC ORANGE are standing for a modernized interpretation of the 'good old' krautrock spirit. While combining some main ingredients, which are classic space rock, tribal percussions, hypnotic rhythms as well as ambient progressive electronics. This based on a proper amount of improvisation and experimentalism by using a lot of exceptional instruments. Well, the murky front cover solely will come into effect actually regarding the vinyl version, I would say. Since 'Misophonia' at least relatively dark-coloured visuals are dominating, probably aimed at complementing with their somewhat doomy melancholic soundscapes.

Content-wise it appears that some leftovers from previous sessions are given, I assume. The first CD is comprised of three tracks, recorded early 2013, hence originally to be designed for 'Volume 10' most likely. Where hereby Gnosis solely appears on the compact disc version with Tom using an acoustic bass! Continuum is a really gripping affair, mirrors the global EO sound and spirit at its best. Groovy and floating parts are constantly alternating, you won't have any damn clue in which direction this is going to flow. Bass, drums, keyboard and guitar are swirling around with fantastic interaction. Second CD starts with two further 'Misophonia' partitions, recorded in 2016 where IV does not really meet my taste due to its depressive atmosphere overall. Additionally two excerpts appear, which are relatively new, recorded in January 2017 precisely defined.

Very convincing according to my taste. Faint and Residuum yet again are offering a wonderful meandering and spacey execution over the course of nearly 40 minutes. Provided with the option to really tune out for some time. The bass playing sounds rather different here. A lonely dog is barking towards the end, probably a mysterious sign pointing to the next album which will follow? 'EOXXV' is a considerable achievement, a good album comprised of extended and rather loose jams. Newbies shouldn't necessarily start with this one. Die-hard ELECTRIC ORANGE fans will get their money's worth though in any case, as the band once again confirms a very unique atmosphere throughout.
