Spacerock in the Music Press - July 2009
The latest issue of R2 (the renamed Rock N Reel) arrived this week. I'm reviewing the new album by Sendelica, The Girl From The Future Who Lit Up The Sky With Golden Worlds in this one, issue 16, the Cropredy Festival edition. I've also got a review of SAF Publishing's compilaton of writings by Gong's Gilli Smyth, Nitrogen Dreams, and in non-spacerock related releases I'm casting a eye over the highly recommended Dengue Fever DVD Sleepwalking Through The Mekong, the delicious jazz-cafe sounds of Tallulah Rendall, reissues of Procol Harum, and a new album of Smiths-esque guitar indie-op from The Parish Music Box.
And over at Record Collector this month, my spacerock related in-put includes the new album from Earthling Society, Esoteric's reissues of The Deviants and the premiere on DVD of Nic Roeg's film of Glastonbury Fayre. I'm also reviewing Jarvis Hammond's excellent music book meets travelogue, A Year of Festivals, a four-CD set of Killing Joke's recent London shows and Esoteric's Gilgamesh reissue.
