Psychedelia meets full-formed jazz in Ozric’s 30th album, meeting new peaks of musical eccentricity. Since their formation in 1984, the English quartet has made a considerable impact in the tradition cottage industry-styled electronica, having made millions of sales in the West, but never signing to a major label. The album opens with the aptly self-descriptive track “Oddweird”, bringing to mind the adventurous computerized sound of early Sega Genesis games — but without the overwhelming tackiness. The song “Yum Yum Tree” takes a detour into a cosmic dimension of space-styled rock that makes you want to drop acid and pretend to fly. Mastered by the smoothest of digital technologies, the album takes you to the edge of the galaxy and back, dwelling in spacier rock themes than their 2008 work Sunrise Festival. (Snapper)
