about

Cuarto álbum de Gaf y la estrella de la muerte. Doble LP, compuesto y grabado en tres días en el Espacio Cultural El Tanque, un enorme depósito de petróleo en desuso en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, y donde se celebra el festival Keroxen. Edita KEROXEN/DISCREPANT (Internacional) y Foehn Records en España.

GAF are back! This time under their Estrella de la Muerte configuration and with a gateway musical behemoth double album into the cosmic unknown. The prolific project, helmed by local Canarian anchorman Mladen Kurajica, dwells deep into esoteric rock genres and this time, they waste no time in plunging the listener into their brave new type of cosmic rock with a deeply influenced krautrock voyage of '70s jamming and psychonautic exploration. Recorded over three days in the cultural space of El Tanque, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, at the height of the covid pandemic of 2020 and during one of the hottest summers to date, the band entered the space with no plan in mind deciding instead to approach the recording sessions without any preconceived ideas or pre-composed songs. Clean out of external influences and ready to experiment they loaded in all their available gear, including an array of modular synths, in order to create a new approach to song writing and flesh out some ideas for a future album in situ. The very process of that search, through pure improvisation and jamming, became the album we're presenting here. No overdubs or subsequent edits were done, except for cutting some songs so that they could fit on the album. Almost five hours of recordings in total, finally reaching a seven-track, 69-minute double LP. All the reverb heard on the record is the natural reverb of El Tanque, a 16-second tail natural reverb recorded with several room mics at different locations in the venue. Eventually this became the first fully instrumental album by the Estrella de la Muerte configuration, with a line-up of seven musicians (Gaf y Estrella de la Muerte are normally a sextet). Enter then, this inspired selection of psychedelically damaged tunes, '70s space rock, psychoacoustics, and Kosmishe inspired jamming. This is healing music for your mind-altering journeys. The titled "Pyramids" here serving not only as a gateway to the cosmic unknown but also as an exploratory symbol of the bands willingness to freely embrace their subconscious inner flows into a cosmic collective. Ecstatic music for these times.
