Galaxy Dynamite “Forward! Into Oblivion” (June 6, 2017) (translated by Google Chrome into English) by Raigor, Moscow Russia
In April this year, after five years they presented to the public their second studio album, entitled “Forward! Into Oblivion “American Space rock band GALAXY DYNAMITE.
This instrumental trio of EJ Toudt (bass, synthesizer), Eric Tuthill (guitar, synthesizer) and Michael Mahgerefteh (drums, sampler) was created in 2010 in Norfolk, Virginia. The 2012 team officially debuted with the albums “Live! At The Jewish Mother “and the first studio album” Moment Of Impact “(which, as far as I know, have not been released on physical media). Since that time, remaining group “unsigned”, the GALAXY DYNAMITE played over four hundred concerts and was admitted to reporters “the best Virginia psychedelic band.” And now a new studio album, 8 songs for a total of 52 minutes.
GALAXY DYNAMITE, according to their own fairly precise definition of “psychedelic electronic Space-rock.” Music to dance groovy motility, rolling funk dynamics massive dub bass and actively Solo psycho-cosmic guitar.
In terms of stylistic roots – a Space Rock “post-ozrikovskogo” direction, initially in a completely instrumental forms (by the way, the band once played “on support» Ozric Tentacles). Also recalls the music of the last couple of years Eindhoven groups Het Droste Effect and Radar Men From The Moon – but it sounds not so overloaded, industrial, and more positive and popular entertainment. Sometimes it evokes associations with some of the entries “Space-therapeutic eydzhistskogo” American group Djam Karet.
Electronics, sampling and computer programming “Forward! Into Oblivion “more than on the debut album” Moment of Impact ” Although the extraction characteristic of the dance-electronic grooves and raves trio still uses mostly traditional rock instruments: drums, percussion, guitar and bass guitar. Synth passages on the album, too, became much more – with the synthesizer is used not only for specific audio texturing context appropriate space-futuristic effects, but also as a solo melodic instrument.
The main feature of the album – this is a departure from the GALAXY DYNAMITE instrumental concept. EJ Toudt and Eric Tuthill took over the execution of the lyrical vocals: it reads in the five things – “Fault In Our Stars”, “Under The Sun”, “The Perfect Cure”, “Shiny And New” and “Back To Square One”. As a consequence, the slope of GALAXY DYNAMITE in lyrical and romantic pop of pop became very much apparent. Let the new songs of collective and well made, and EJ Toudt as vocalist quite slushabelen (def. dark, ambient) – lovers of pop music, I think, in any case, will give preference to artists such as Pet Shop Boys, Erasure, The Chemical Brothers, Daft Punk, or … who’s there right now ” billboard charts “is headed?
Summary: on the part of the composite-arranger-producer making “Forward! Into Oblivion “- the album is high-quality and reasonably interesting. Emphasizing instrumentals “Launchpad” and “10,000 Villages”. Regarding the content … I still would recommend familiarity with GALAXY DYNAMITE start with the album “Moment of Impact”, and then you move on to a new job – so your knowledge of the band’s music will be more complete. That, in turn, will determine the accuracy of your personal choice.
