Band in the spotlight: Lüger (Spain, space/psych-rock)
Spanish space/psychedelic rock band from Madrid, Luger is a five-piece band has released their s/t album in April this year and is available for free download or purchase as a physical copy in their Bandcamp (see below). It's a short album with a special quirky atmosphere; listening to it late at night, "medicated" might lead you to believe you've traveled to another dimension. Actually, even in sound mind, this can take you places.
Read reviews here.
Here's a short blurb about the band:
" Madrid-based quintet responsible of this gorgeous debut album, Lüger are heavily influenced by classic acts such as Hawkwind, Faust, and Neu!. So the music is provided with surpassing Krautrock elements, however they sound less vintage, rather modern, comparable with the likes of Turzi or Wooden Shjips in a wider sense. This is a limited 500 copies vinyl pressing in 180g vinyl, sure to become a sought-after collector's item in the near future -- so get it now! -Forced Exposure "
