Epic Album of The Week – 35007’s Liquid

Written By Ian Gerber

For The Soda Shop

35007 is an interesting psych/stoner band from The Netherlands.  While they are definitely a psychedelic band in every sense of the term, they have a very pleasing modern take on psychedelia.  These guys are in the same company as Red Sparrowes, Isis, Pelican, and Farflung.  Sometimes they have vocals, sometimes they just make intense soundscapes, but they always space out.  

I stumbled onto them through a Youtube “stoner rock”  playlist and have been hooked ever since.  While I would encourage anyone who likes trippy, spacey music to check out their discography, they have a couple that stand out from the others…most of all, Liquid.  Liquid is comprised of 4 aquatic themed tracks that blends space, psychedelic, and post-rock that is perfect for an evening on the couch while you stare off into your  favorite visualizer program. Surely I’m not the only one in these parts who enjoys that, right?

If I could sum up the record with one word, it would be…serene.  Dick Dale never saw this coming. Imagine the guys from Neurosis taking a break from the doom and gloom to go surfing.  This is the album they would make.   Intrigued?  Good, give it a play and get your oceanic space rock on.  Cheers.

There’s a good possibility Christmas and New Year’s will derail Epic Album of The Week, so see you next year.

  1. Cool, thanks for pointing this out. High praise in your “in the company of” statement.

    I’ve enjoyed this weekly feature so far, but it’s nice to read about one that I don’t already own and/or am not already intimately familiar with…
