For the 10th release on Drone Rock Records, we see the very welcome return of those German Psychonauts, The Space Spectrum, with their album, “Drone Jams Vol II”. As the title clearly suggests, this is the excellent follow up to “Drone Jams Vol I” which was the 2nd record that I put out back at the end of 2015 and which went down a storm with both customers and critics alike. Though the 4 tracks on the album were recorded 2 and 1/2 years ago in January 2015, they have a timeless quality with the songs sounding just as fresh and original now as they did then. The help the band received from “How To Make Sushi Recordings” in the rehearsal rooms and the mixing skills of “No Plans For Any Future Recordings” have only added to the to quality of these recordings. As the band themselves said of the recording sessions for this record, “This week back in January 2015 was probably the best time The Space Spectrum ever had in this music life and will always be in our heads and hearts”. For anyone that loved the first volume of Drone Jams, this really is a treat of record and sees the band develop their knack for classic kosmiche space-jams.
