" II "
Shem is a collective of musicians aiming
to create improvisational sound pieces influenced by a
wide range of eras and strains of Psychedelic music:
From early Krautrock bands such as Amon Düül,
Can and Popol Vuh,
to the oscellation driven space rock of Hawkwind
and the meandering soundscapes
created by contemporary bands such
as Electric Orange, Oresund Space Collective and Kungens Män.
Through combining elements of Ambient, Drone, Psych and Space Rock into epic, reverb drenched jams,
Shem take the listener onto a cosmic journey
into their own realm of musical experimentation.
On their sophomore album, the band continue
their research mission into the deep field
of sonic improvisations, following up
"The Hill AC" with a 40 minute journey into cosmic abysses,
across obscured nightscapes and into the vastness of space.
Keeping up the momentum with a constant motorik groove,
Shem explore both moments of atmospheric calmth
and distorted maelstroms of psychedelic bliss,
offering the listener a gateway into their realm
of musical experimentations once again.
"II" displays the next step in a continuous creative process,
and we hope you enjoy delving into these
soundscapes as much as we enjoyed creating them!
The album will be released through Clostridium Records on March 5th,
limited to 150 copies on marbled red / 150 copies on black vinyl
and includes an A2 sized poster and logo stickers.
