Slift La Planete Inexploree

8 / 10

Slift of Toulouse France has a new album La Planete Inexploree from Howlin’ Banana Records and Exag Records. It is a wild ride filled with edgy psychedelic rock and kraut minded garage rock. The songs from this three man band have syncopated rhythms, fuzz tones, experimental explorations that push each song to their limit. The French music scene is becoming more psychedelic and exciting new music is bubbling from it’s seams.

Slift is a new band which released Space is the Key an EP in 2017. La Planete Inexploree is the first full-Length album and lands with a huge splash. Slift utilizes unusual vocals, psych freak-outs, motorik rhythms, heavy riffs and gentler moments which include clean guitars, echo and flute.

This album is an expansive romp through contemporary psychedelic rock. The music reminds me of artists such as Thee Oh Sees, Electric Moon, and King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard, however, they have an original sound.

The diversity on the album is a feast of plenty and displays incredible range in songwriting, tone, and skill. There is so much here to love and be challenged by that any psych fan can find some gold in this deep well. The album is well recorded and mixed packed with inspiration.

SliftLa Planete Inexploree is an spectacular debut album. The music is original and diverse, no one-trick-ponyisms with this album. The music is clearly inspired by high energy psych acts mostly Oh Sees. At times it is perhaps a bit to close in tone to John Dwyer’s genre defining music. Slift’s creativity reaches its’ tentacles inside your brain.
