OUT NOW - CD/DD! RAIG is proud to present: debut album of CIOLKOWSKA, a young psychedelic-rock band from Saint-Petersburg. "Pistolet Budushchego” (or “Pistol of the Future”) features mostly instrumental, well balanced sci-fi music at the intersection of psychedelic space-rock and experimental post-prog-rock, accompanied by the short voice-narration in Russian. Inspired by the ideas of “Russian Cosmism”, a philosophical and cultural movement that emerged in Russia in the early XX century. CD (8 tracks – 64 min.) comes in a full-color 4-panel cardboard folder. $13.00 + shipping.
31 AUGUST 2 0 1 5 :: Mechanik / Eadem Mutata Resurgo (2015, R089 CD/DD)
OUT NOW - CD/DD! RAIG is proud to present: "Eadem Mutata Resurgo", the 2nd full-length album by the Spanish psyche-space-kraut phenomena MECHANIK is out now. This is mostly instrumental, non-stop and psych-out transmission with the tracks organically flowing into one another. It's darker, more experimental and courageous work in comparison with the band's previous album. Yet it will fully satisfy lovers of motoric, groovy, rich and intricately textured trippy space-kraut-rock fueled by the themes of Death, Mysticism, Gnosticism, Time Travel, Drug Abuse, Spiritualism, Outer Space, Decadence, etc. CD (8 tracks – 53 min.) comes in a full-color 4-panel cardboard folder. $13.00 + shipping.
