Give Your Brain A Rest From The Matrix is a limited edition CD digipack and digital only release with a potential for a double LP release in the future. It is the 14th proper release by the Øresund Space Collective. The music on this release was born on Sept 26th, 2010, the same recording session as the Entering into the Space Country and Phaze your Fears.
Dr. Space says: “This was the third day of the studio session and KG from Siena Root had arrived and we were ready for some serious sitar jams. Three out of the four tracks feature sitar. PIB played the drums, Nick played the bass and they were joined by me and Mogens on synthesizer, Johan Dahlström (First Band from Outer Space), Mathias Danielsson(My Brother the Wind, Gösta Berlings Saga), well asClaus Bøhling (Hurdy Gurdy, Secret Oyster, Elektrum). KG plays guitar, Hammond, sitar and synthesizer. The music is 4 tracks, all between 10 and 25 minutes in length, with an eastern vibe and feeling and some amazing heart felt guitar. Steve, who mixed the record, provides one short synthesizer overdub on the last track on the CD.”
You can hear the tracks streaming on Bandcamp on this location.
In addition, the band is about to kick off their first ever real tour (7 shows in 10 days). Dr. Space says: “I hope we will meet some of you on the tour. We will also have a special tour shirt made with the dates on the back. Whatever we don’t sell on the tour we will be available in the webshop. We also have 9 20x 30cm backpatches if you have some free space on your jacket!”
