Subarachnoid Space Also Rising

If math rock and space rock were to procreate, then SubArachnoid Space would be the offspring. Both elements of what made the mid-‘90s indie scene so appealing are encoded on this disc. There is never a dull moment — one can either focus on the rotating reverberated guitars, or follow the almost punk-like rhythm section, which makes a classic act like Hawkwind sound dated and somewhat rudimentary in scope. Followers of Yume Bitsu and Landing can seek solace within the droning dirty mechanical soundscapes, and those with an inkling for calculating a link between pulses, beats and spaces and everyday life will find this album to be a success in alchemy through audio.
