SONIC TRIP PROJECT- Atonium Sunflower CD-R (Self Released)
Sonic Trip Project is a UK project lead by Vince Cory (Red Elektra 69, Ahs Magna, and many others). It features a full band with bass, drums, electronics and Sunhair (Horst) has even performed with them as well. There are 4 releases on bandcamp now. This CD features 4 long tracks. Open elevator Seven starts things off with a nice Hawkwind like vibe and acoustic guitar complimented with space sounds, which at 3mins takes a dramatic turn in the mood with a new guitar line, the addition of drums and base a groove!! Vince really lets it rip in the guitar later. Scarab Nebula is quite spacey and hypnotic with an quite low fi sound to it. The organ really takes the lead and the riff is quite heavy at times, while the space sounds bubble and spark! Trippy stuff indeed a Sonic Trip!
The title track is very spacey and slow building. The drums and bass are mixed quite low so you sort of sense the movement of a groove while the layers of space sounds are more to the front. A dreamy synth line comes in later. Very spaced out.
Cairo Neon is listed as the 3rd track but is actually the last track and is a long 34min jam with Horst (aka Sunhair) plus Phil Cory on lead guitar. Very intense piece of music at times. This track was also recorded live but I am not sure if it is from the same gig or not?? It is a high energy grooving space rock number with some nice lead guitar work and driving drums and bass. It gets really spacey at times and then more heavy and rocking again. Great piece. Check out part of it below.
The self titled number finishes the CD-R off. This track was also recorded live but I am not sure if it is from the same gig or not?? It is a high energy grooving space rock number with some nice lead guitar work and driving drums and bass. It gets really spacey at the end.
