*Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* New album of shambolic, lurching psych rock from Lumerians. I dig the way this stuff reminds me of VHF's mid-90s space rock era (think Doldrums et al). Surging psych-oriented bass and kraut percussion form the backbone of four heady tracks. The epic finale proves most transportive, as seething, delayed leads and drones finally resolve into a murky, driving jam. Recommended for fans of PSF, krautrock as such, the aforementioned VHF output, and even aboveground contemporary psych acts like Wooden Shjips and Comets of Fire. - Alex Cobb, Experimedia
Oakland-based quintet's Lumerians is specialized in administrating heavy psychedelic waves of sound and shards of light to their fellow test-subjects. Back to 2010, the Californians delivered a full-blown audio experience with their killer debut-album Transmallinia. This summer, Transmissions From Telos: Vol. IV marks a new procession of tunes from outer space, a selection of spontaneous music found on the Lumerians hard drive catacombs. Side A are fragments of raw stellar ore. Unnamed and unclassified, delivered with a thin protective lubricant to prevent violent combustion in the Earth's oxygen rich atmosphere. Side B is a trans-dimensional demon love child, imploding with raging love, but too grotesque to live in this world. Left anonymous lest the utterance of his name bring doom to us all.
