Krautrockers Hedersleben Featuring UK Subs Member Nicky Garratt To Release Second Album 'Die Neuen Welten'


San Francisco, CA – Hedersleben, the cosmic Krautrock outfit from Oakland, California, featuring UK Subs member Nicky Garratt, are set to release their second album, ‘Die Neuen Welten,’ on August 26th, 2014. Hedersleben originated through the paradoxical paths of playing clubs in the streets of Oakland and The Kosmische Musik Zentrum Projekt in Hedersleben, Germany. In their first year, they have recorded two full-length albums as Hedersleben and gone on to record with the likes of Brainticket and Hawkwind’s Nik Turner. Hedersleben were featured on the new Brainticket album with founding member Joel Vandroogenbroeck (due for release later this year) co-writing a number of pieces, and various members played on Nik Turner’s acclaimed album, ‘Space Gypsy.’ In 2013 Hedersleben went on tour with Nik Turner, both as his backing band and opening act. These sonic explorers of the universe are keeping busy; late August will see them again joining Hawkwind’s Nik Turner on the late Summer/early Fall tour of North America. On the 2014 North American tour, Hedersleben will back Nik Turner as well as promote their new album, ‘Die Neuen Welten,” while introducing new pieces from their next record, ‘The Fall of Chronopolis,’ due to be recorded in 2015.

Says Nicky Garratt, "The past year has been the most musically rewarding for me since 1977. Aside from working with legendary progressive artists, it is a great sense of relief to have a universe of musical possibilities ahead."

Die Neuen Welten ( THE NEW WORLDS ) -  In 2009, Nasa launched the Kepler space telescope. Kepler discovered nearly 1,000 confirmed extrasolar planets in 76 star systems and thousands more that are yet un-confirmed. Die Neuen Welten is an aural expedition into this unveiled realm of new worlds out there in the darkness.

Rock Review: Aunt Mary-New Dawn

Release Date: 12th February 2016 Label: Wind-Up Website
Aunt Mary, as a name, somehow suggests an “older” band and it came as no real surprise to find that they are a Norwegian prog band from the 70’s. The band were considered by many to be one of the best prog bands in Norway with their brand of music a mixture of heavy hard rock tunes plus clear indications of a more symphonic nature, although that only really showed itself on their 3rd, and last, studio album, Janus, in 1973. Last that is, until now, with the release of New Dawn. This would appear to be an apt title for a release which follows 24 years after an album of blues covers, released in 1992. 

At their height, Aunt Mary were “up there” with the likes of Deep Purple, Ten Years After, King Crimson, Jethro Tull and many more. After the release of Janus in 1973, the band split up but did a few sporadic appearances, as well as releasing the blues covers album mentioned earlier.

3 years ago, the Norwegian guitar legend and producer, …

New Age Instrumental Review: Anaya Music-AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music)

Release Date: February 2, 2018 Label: Anaya Music Website
Around this time a year ago I had the experience of listening to Anaya Music and providing coverage of Eternity.  It was an uplifting experience and a memorable listen as I recall.
Now with February drawing closer AONKI – Gateway of Love (Cosmic New Age Music) will arrive.
Once again, the recording features several exceptional collaborations between Anaya Music and a live virtual symphony orchestra recorded in the heart of Prague, the capital of the Czech republic. The orchestra combines members of the finest ensembles in Prague, including the Czech Philharmonic.
I think they should rename the orchestra to “The Live Spiritual Orchestra.” If you have been exposed to Anaya Music you will understand what that means. If this is your first journey with this music you will find out very quickly. Either way, this is spiritually uplifting music that leaves a smile on your soul. It’s like the term digital footprint, there is an everlasting m…

Jazz Fusion-Rock-Pop-Funk Review: Project Grand Slam-Trippin’

Release Date: June 29, 2018 Label: Cakewalk Records Website
This will be my sixth voyage into the world of Project Grand Slam (PGS). So, what is this experience going to be like this time? I would expect the same great combination of jazz, rock, funk, and pop that I always enjoyed.

Just so you all know PGS is: Robert Miller (bass), Mario Castro (saxophones), Bayden Goyo (keyboards), Joel E. Mateo (drums), Guillermo Barron Rios (percussion), Tristan Clark (guitar) and the beautiful Ms. Ziarra Washington (vocals).

So, now we are Trippin’ into 2018 with PGS. And the first track titled “1972” was like turning on the radio and hearing the Average White Band or Tower of Power. Yes sir, on the AM dial, it came blaring through back in those days. 

The title track is a real gas too. This number has some great sax from Castro and a killer rhythm section courtesy of Miller and Mateo. It shines the spotlight on them clear and bright. Let me tell you, those two are like the dynamic duo, kind of like a p…
