A few weeks ago a friend of mine recommended The Heliocentrics new album Infinity Of Now to me. I was not sure if it was my cup of tea and forgot about it. The recent days I remembered his words and I found the time to check this album out. And I have to admit that it is a superb album. The Heliocentrics are a London based jazz collective playing together for more than a decade and their sound is very unique. Their musical cosmos spreads from the asymmetric sound of Sun Ra over to Pierre Henry's Gong, Can and reals psychedelic sounds. Every song is different to the others. Hanging By A Tread is dominated by Afro-Latin drums, a psychedelic blues guitar, a steamy organ on a funk bass line.
People Wake Up! is an almost 10 minutes long beast and one of the most tripped-out songs I listened to the last months. An electric guitar that reminds to Keith Levine circa at PIL's Metal Box era, a doom dubby bassline, sirens, flute and strings and other psych effect makes this song outstanding.
