Product Description

Between the vast expanses and disparate extremes of space lies 'The High Frontier:' a term coined by Gerard K O'Neil in his illustrated 1976 book depicting human colonization of space. In their new thusly titled LP, Lumerians send terrified primates into space in search of wonders both marvelous and harrowing. In a starship powered by gamma-ray-mutated rock, beer-goggled cartographers chart the absurd scales of outer space from subatomic to trans-galactic and the unfathomable void of inner space unbound by physical laws. Inward perception, both fluid and delicate, births, destroys, multiplies and collides temporal realities. Hacking through gnarled carnivorous plants with pyrokinetic machetes, Lumerians thrust forward with Krautrock inspired exploration, Afrobeat s ritualistic rhythms, post-punk guitar noise and cracked-glacé synth lines culled from perverse 1970 s sci-fi soundtracks. As a follow-up to 2011 s 'Transmalinnia,' 'The High Frontier' sets scope outward, points blind-folded at a star map and sets off full blast without making course corrections.


Psych-rock powerhouse --The Fader

Hypnotic and mind altering...mixes Krautrock with a 1960s Bay Area vibe --Uncut

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Charlie Quaker on September 25, 2013
Format: Audio CD
2nd album from Oakland, California band--rhythmic, psychedelic space/drone electro-rock with
repetitive black-light melody lines and a percussive, driving bottom end. Ritualistic tribal
Krautrock soundscapes play host to trippy, hypnotic pop hooks. There's an eerie sense of
otherworldly invitation in the druggy chant/dirge of hazy choruses and experimental starburst
noises. Synthesizers surface in playful contrast to the undulating, dark-vibrato guitars. Some
similarities to Can, Spacemen 3, White Hills, Suicide, the Black Angels, the Legendary Pink
Dots, Prince Rama, Spiritualized, Eat Lights Become Lights. "The High Frontier" is a psychedelic
freak-fest interplanetary journey.

Dig the creepy sci-fi vibe! Listen to the album with the lights out...pretend you are on a space station slowly falling out of orbit...dig it!
