Oh, the GROOVE!!! Funky, chill vibes lay the groundwork for this week’s ThErpsday selection. “Slinky” was released on Ozric Tentacles‘ 2004 album Spirals In Hyperspace. For maximum effect, turn your speakers up loud and disconnect your mind from all else for 8 minutes and 40 seconds of euphoria. This tune sends me into my own little […]
Ozric Tentacles – Live in Athens Well here is a nice surprise! I am so glad I came across this video! Here is a FULL SHOW from March 04, 2016 in Athens, Greece, featuring just under two hours of pure Ozrics magic!
Ozric Tentacles – Saucers From the renowned 1991 album Strangeitude, “Saucers” takes a Middle Eastern influence and launches it into outer space. Ed Wynne’s mastery of any instrument with strings shines through in this adventure through time and space. Enjoy this classic tune from the mighty Ozrics for this week’s ThErpsday selection.
ThErpsday This week’s ThErpsday selection comes from the 1989 album Pungent Effulgent. Even though this is a classic album for the mighty Ozrics, I feel that this song in particular does not receive a lot of attention. “Wreltch” begins with a deceptively slow start, but once the two-minute mark hits, there is no slowing down! Please […]
Oh yes, we have lift-off! This week’s ThErpsday selection comes from Ozric Tentacles‘ 2009 album The Yum Yum Tree. “Oolong Oolong” immediately attracts listeners with soft, tantalizing, psychedelic tones and builds up to a swirling climax in the form of a shredding guitar solo. Happy ThErpsday Erpsters!
Ozric Tentacles – Chewier Here’s a little live magic for you from Ozric Tentacles‘ performance at Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland on April 22, 2006. The song, “Chewier,” is from the 2004 album Spirals In Hyperspace.
It’s about time that I did a short little piece on this particular tune! “Changa Masala” comes from Ozric Tentacles‘ most recent release, Technicians of the Sacred (2015). Tugging at the inner reaches of the psyche from the very beginning, the thumping bass takes over the groove, followed by a barrage of synth magic. Now, I […]
Ah, Waterfall Cities, my favorite full album by the inimitable Ozric Tentacles! Released in 1999, I give to you today Part 1 of the two-part title track that will elevate you out of this world. “Waterfall City (Part 1)” brings to life an era of electronic trance music that took over an entire underground scene in the […]
Happy ThErpsday Erpsters! I am extremely sorry that it has been a couple of weeks since my last ThErpsday selection, but I come back to you now with a renewed vigor! This week’s tune comes from the 1993 album Jurassic Shift. “Feng Shui” embodies all of the weirdness associated with our wonderful Ozrics. The band truly […]
A classic, but no less potent today than it was almost 30 years ago, “Dissolution” is this week’s ThErpsday selection from Ozric Tentacles. The tune is from the band’s first album to be released on CD, Pungent Effulgent (1989), and its hypnotic opening guitar lick is a staple of the Ozric Tentacles sound. Enjoy this week’s […]
