Litmus – Aurora [2009]

Following in the footsteps of their idols Hawkwind, Litmus deliver the space rock goods in the old school way, and to excess. We’re talking extended jam sessions, cosmic vocal meanderings and blistering lead breaks to beat the band. Conjuring the long forgotten krautrock spirits of Can and Neu! into the mix, resulting in a spiraling, expansive listen which should appeal severely to any and all fans of psychedelia. I only wonder where the band can possibly go from here, because as it stands now, Litmus are simply at the top of their game.
