Psychedelic, progressive, kraut, some hard rock hints… are the many ingredients of music that Mind! has known how to combine in its own musical melting pot. Obviously, its influences are sometimes noticeable: Hawkwind, Pink Floyd after Syd Barret’s first departure, and more edible kraut rock sounds. We can also relate them to contemporary bands such as Black Mountain or Wooden Shjips, which take on a similar approach to modernize sounds from past decades as Mind!’s members do.
Like a cosmic watch machinery, Mind! is able to trap us with its enveloping music that projects an unmistakable feeling of taking off into the purest tradition of space rock from the seventies. Nevertheless, in this album, Mind! delivers 7 themes built taking into account the lesser of the details and in spite of its intention of transmitting a trip throughout vast astronomic spaces, we can attest that what lies beneath all of it is the simplicity of their proposal away from ramblings or mere improvisation. Each sound, although sometimes it may seem hectic, has its own place: Vocals that seem to land from high up, an effective rhythmic ground and the combination of clear sounds through the proper use of the keyboard, effects and a clear sounding electric guitar that falls far from excessive distortion, but above all, a great collective imagination to articulate all these elements. Mind! is all of the above.
