Editors’ Notes

Not since the F*cking Champs teamed up with Trans Am in 2004 has a collaboration between two bands sounded perfectly matched. In this second installment from Manchester, England’s drone masters (Gnod) join Brooklyn’s keepers of the space-rock torch (White Hills) to birth multi-leveled tiers of astral mind-melting sonic topography.

The 13-and-a-half minute-long “Spaced Man” makes good on its title with a Hawkwind-esque jam, while “Drop Out” bestows NEU!-inspired Krautrock.
