Experimental feature

While southern Europe fulminates about German economic might a small corner of Spain stages a rapprochement. Valencia’s Jupiter Lion place themselves squarely in the tradition of Can, the great krautrock experimentalists, picking up their compulsive mechanistic beat as though it were a channel connecting 1970s Cologne to the modern-day Mediterranean.

Motivated by not so much by ancestor worship as a sense of continuity, Silver Mouth is a hypnotic concoction of psychedelic riffs, deep, almost funky, bass lines, cosmic synth swirls and chanted vocals; several dance remixes at the end bring it even further up to date.
