UFO OVER LAPPLAND - UFO OVER LAPPLAND (Colored Vinyl) LP
Shipping calculated at checkout.
UFO Over Lappland from Umea in the northern part of Sweden (also home to Refused) are an instrumental kraut-rock band in the vein of Neu!, Amon Duul II, or early Kraftwerk, but with some post-rock sensibilities. Burnt Toast Vinyl is proud to re-release UFO Over Lappland's self-titled debut album on cd/LP. Their original cassette release sold out very quickly in Sweden and was then picked up for cd/LP release by Germany's Sulatron Records. That original vinyl pressing of the album has sold out. For this Burnt Toast Vinyl re-issue, the audio was remastered by Grammy winning engineer Stephen Roessner (Calibrated Sound, Saxon Shore) and was cut to lacquers by Bob Weston at his Chicago Mastering Service. The LPs are pressed on high quality space purple/pink swirled vinyl from Gotta Groove in Cleveland. "We are presented with four fairly lengthy instrumental tracks, fashioned from long jams and distilled down to these awesome songs presented here, on this their first record. The album starts with the twelve plus minute epic that is ‘Keep On Keepin’ On Space Truckin’, a mission statement if ever there was one, with Hawkwind immediately springing to mind, combined with the motorik, pulsating rhythms of say Neu. The grinding, gnarled bass often doing the job of the lead guitar during some of the passages; it’s heavy but not loose, propelling itself ever spaceward in a questing fashion, plenty of bubbling synth…unlike a lot of space rock, they achieve a very focused sound, oh and it rocks like a bastard! ..As debut albums go, it’s one of the finest in the genre that I’ve heard, highly recommended." – The Terrascope
