Oresund Space Collective: Sleeping with the Sunworm

Are you up for a fifty-five minute jam session? If the answer is yes, look no further than the 10th release from Øresund Space Collective Sleeping with the Sunworm. The album was recorded in 2008; the same sessions that led to the albums Dead Man in Space and Slip into the Vortex. On this album Kaufmann (drums, percussion) takes the place of Anders K. who played on Dead Man in Space. Most of the band hails from Copenhagen, Denmark and the Malmö, Sweden area.

There is no sense reviewing individual tracks as such as this is really one long song that has been separated into three tracks for conventional purposes. It really does play as one song as each part runs into the next section seamlessly although there is variety here and I never felt myself becoming uninterested while listening.

As the band name suggests, they play space rock and do a very good job within the genre. Lots of sound effects and a variety of synths are used and the guitar playing is excellent throughout as it runs the gamut from spacey atmospheric soloing to more psychedelic tones. I like how the band blends mellow atmospheric sections with more intense, heavier sounds.

Those of you who appreciate improvisational jamming and space/psychedelic rock, Sleeping with the Sunworm is a no-brainer. We can thank bands like Øresund Space Collective for keeping space rock alive and well in this day and age of mindless pop drivel from the latest flavour of the month. Thanks guys…
