richy49.75 Nice bit of heavy psych to bliss out to. Influenced in the direction of CAN, Hawkwind and Gong but is it's own thing and really decently heavy. . Favorite track: The Vessel.

Hills – Master Sleeps (Launch061)

For the uninitiated, Hills are a three piece band based in Gothenburg and Master Sleeps was their second album, originally released on a small Swedish label in 2011.

We at Rocket are now proud to present a re-release of this great (future) psych classic, with stunning new sleeve artwork by Brazilian artist Bruno Borges.

Master Sleeps draws it’s inspiration from some of the great bands of the late 60’s and early 70’s. German bands like Can, Amon Duul and AR Machines. Also you can hear the influence of native Swedish legends like, International Harvester, Pärson Sound and Trad Gras Och Stenar. But unlike a lot of the current scene of psych bands that have mined their 60’s and 70’s record collections, Hills manage to sound contemporary and relevant in 2013. They, along with bands like Oneida, Circle and friends Goat, are able to bring something new to the (well used) table.

Hills are currently putting the finishing touches to their third album which will be released by Rocket in 2014, so this reissue of Master Sleeps (and a Hills Live album recently released on Cardinal Fuzz) is a nice taster of what to expect from the next instalment from this great band.

We can expect live shows throughout Europe in early 2014, including a performance at the legendary Roadburn festival to make up for cancelling last year.
