Fleetwood psychonauts return with their second album of 2017. Whereas ‘Zen B*****d’ was a re- imagining of ancient songs from the back catalogue, ‘Ascent to Godhead’ consists of brand new compositions improvised in the studio. No Hawkwind-esque generators are to be found which are synonymous with the space rock genre.

Instead we have a calamitous howl more reminiscent to the Birthday Party than to Gong. Earthling Society’s unique song writing abilities remain however; where no song starts and ends the same, constantly morphing into something new. Jazz and eastern rhythms are at the forefront of ‘Ascent to Godhead’. Taking inspiration from Alice Coltrane, Sun Ra, Far East Family band, Tidori Takada amongst others.

This is no hippy claptrap from the sunshine playroom, it’s an album that ties your brain in knots, and oozes spiritual meaning.

Also included is the long lost garage rocker ‘Can You Levitate?’ Recorded in 2009 and only unearthed earlier this year. Proving that earthling Society were belting this stuff out long before the current psych scene with it Elevators’ call to arms and Butthole Surfers splashdown.
