Maat Lander: The Birth Of Maat's Galaxy

Attention! Connoisseur's of instrumental space/ psych rock! Maat Lander has arrived! This dynamic new outfit out of Russia is a collaborative effort that combines the forces of two of Russian label RAIG's most celebrated artists. We have Ark (keys, synths & bass) and Ivan (drums, percussion) Fedotov from Vespero, a band that that has been making waves throughout the international scene for over ten years, along with Ilya Lipkin (guitars) from The Re-Stoned, who have been re-writing the acid drenched, psychedelic rock template since the early 00's.

After one listen to the trio's debut effort The Birth Of Maat's Galaxy, which comes housed in a beautifully designed digipak, you don't need to be a genius to figure out what brought these musicians together for this exciting new musical venture. The Fedotov brothers supply an endless amount of electronic bliss and trippy space rock passages, highlighted by gorgeous synth textures, layered overtop the muscular percussive patterns, while Lipkin's varied guitar work goes from all out scorching blues fused solos to carefully thought out, multi-faceted soundscapes. Blended together it all comes across as one long seamless composition, even though there are ten individual tracks. It's an almost eighty minute journey that will have the listener hooked from the opening atmospheric introduction of "The Comet Rider" through to the final closing notes of the epic sounding title track.

This is a simply stunning debut effort from Maat Lander that unites three supremely talented musicians and has given them the opportunity to forge a truly unique listening experience. If you're already familiar with Vespero and The Re-Stoned, then I can't see you passing this one up. Even if you're not, you're still definitely going to want to check this one out. Highly recommended!
