Drone Rock Records is thrilled to announce the imminent arrival of 'Inverted Evolution', the second album from Swedish Psychonauts, Fanatism.
I have been eagerly awaiting a follow up to their rather fantastic 2018 debut, 'The Future Past', and this album delivers and then some. It is a record that refuses to be defined by one genre or style but instead simply highlights the amount of talent and musical tastes this close-knit group of friends bring to the table. With a core element of the band being heavily involved in other modern Scandi psych bands (namely Kungens Män, Automatism and Eye Make The Horizon) it is audibly obvious that these guys are clearly comfortable riffing off and improvising with each other. 'Inverted Evolution' is both a natural progression away from and a companion piece to its mighty fine predecessor. "...it makes me want to delve back into the music that I am reminded of, and also whets my appetite for what comes next. It is a set that brings a lot together but then also sets up future narratives. This, of course, is how music is… but not all music reminds us of this… after having absorbed what is on offer here I feel that my own narrative in my own sonic universe has inched forward once more." Fragmented Flaneur "The band, which is spawned from the same fertile sources as improv-psych unit Kungens Män, fuses a Hawkwind via Wooden Shjips approach with a touch of sax scorch."
