UFO Över Lappland – S/T [PURPLE & PINK SWIRL VINYL] – New LP

Regular price $ 25.00 $ 0.00
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."

"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. ‘JaeDeJae’, follows this tremendous album opening song and is a little shorter being only seven minutes long, but they do cram a lot into it, sonar bleeps and controlled feedback, give way to an altogether funkier beast, a tremendous locked groove rhythm section, providing a bedrock for some fine guitar and synth playing, unlike a lot of space rock, they achieve a very focused sound, oh and it rocks like a bastard!

‘Podzol’, is more laidback, it gradually coalesces, forming an interesting piece of music, again a tight rhythm section gels and provide a bedrock for some more sonic invention, glimmering guitar tones, burbling synths, tribal drums and grinding bass, all lock together at various place to fine effect. The final song on the vinyl edition ends with ‘Nothing That Lives...Has Such Eyes’, it announces itself with another heavy, knotty, rhythm section, a real steady motorik groove is established early on, which twists and mutates a few times throughout its ten minutes, again allowing the guitar and synth to provide some fine astrally inclined melodies. The CD edition adds a bonus track ‘Lemmy On The Beach’, the title giving you some clue as to one of the band’s inspirations. As debut albums go, it’s one of the finest in the genre that I’ve heard, highly recommended."
