In 2006, Ozric Tentacles released an album called The Floor’s Too Far Away.

The song builds […]

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it is ThErpsday once again! Today’s weekly Ozrics fix comes from my personal favorite full album Waterfall Cities. The song is “Sultana Detrii,” providing a laid back reggae type groove but, of course, with that signature psychedelic punch that we know oh so well. Waterfall Cities was released in 1999, and our fearless […]
