xrFarflight: under the spell of the cyclops' view! + free "producing dust" EP

German neo-psychedelic duo xrFarflight will release their new album under the spell of the cyclops' view! on March 4. A current free EP has three outtakes and one track of the album.

Multi-instrumentalists Karsten Genz and Daniel Gädicke joined forces in 2003 with a shared passion love for early Pink Floyd and Soft Machine. With dreamy lyrics inspired by fairy tales and sci-fi and a pasoral feel it's the perfect soundtrack for a picnic on a sunny day in Spring. Taking it's title from the very first line in the album's opener spacecramp, the songs flow like a lazy brook with a few treacherous undercurrents to keep it interesting. Tracks like walkin' the snowman and and a fat, ill-tempered baby bring back The Kinks in their Village Green Preservation Society phase, while insects sound a lot like early Bowie, just before he went stellar, shedding the last bit of his folk roots.
