This is the first post-Spacemen 3 album by Pete "Sonic Boom" Kember. While Jason Pierce went on to form the more well-known group, Spiritualized, Kember continued to pursue his blissed-out, droning, trance-pop with this new group. You can certainly hear the elements carried over from his work with Spacemen 3: hypnotic drones, pulsing beat-less song structures, incanted vocals, and religious themes. Standout tracks include the opener, "How You Satify Me", which could have been a Spacemen song, as well as the euphoric, "Waves Wash Over Me". Kemper is an artist worth rediscovering, and at least on this album, every bit as important as his more well-recognized, former musical partner.
Our goal, as Tigers, is to turn people on to artists and albums that they may have missed. Incredible, interesting, personal, forward-thinking, and otherwise exceptional works that have been either overlooked or under appreciated. We will not be featuring the latest, greatest, album leaks by Hyped-Band-X. Plenty of other places for that. Tigers find that kind of thing boring. Please listen to these albums, and if you enjoy them, support the artists!
