Jonathan This is outstanding psychedelic rock with soaring guitar play and a kick ass rhythm. On good headphones, "self titled" is fucking amazing. "Sulfur" has my vote for best psych track of 2019. Acid Rooster is for real. Favorite track: Sulfur.

An album full of trance like, spacey krautish jams to fry your brain and fuck with your head. A tripped out Hawkwind!

Reviews:

"Though Acid Rooster have flown their freak flag high for many moons, the band only released their impressive S/T debut very recently. And not to exaggerate — ‘Acid Rooster‘ is one of the best contemporary psych records around, (...). Mainlining the spirit of Agitation Free, Neu! or any of the well known German psych and krautrock pioneers, Acid Rooster’s partially-written and part-improv take on free-thinking psych is equal parts monolithic and hypnotic, executed with genuine conviction – it’s like being catapulted into orbit by wave after cosmic wave in a maelstrom of psychedelic flavors, whether it’s blistering guitar pyrotechnics or the downtempo check-ins with your consciousness. It’s Acid Rooster’s strength to relentlessly take you well beyond the astral planes."
(Roadburn / Walter Hoeijsmakers)

"It is solid gold from start to finish. (...) Every time you think they’ve taken a break, given you a bit of a breather, a slow track to let you regain your senses, you quickly realise that no, the drop in tempo is purely there so they can wind it up, and up, and up again, until we are once more in orbit. (...)
This is one of the best contemporary psych records I’ve heard, not just of this year but of any year! Buy it and let it take you to special places." (Echoes & Dust / Dan Salter)

_____________________________


Acid Rooster are pretty much a wet dream for heads who cram their cabinets with Amon Düül, Spacemen 3, Wooden Shjips and Magma. The dynamics of this band diverge from weightless, spaced out aerobatics to the more sublime, monolithic jams. These guys deliberately avoid generic and succinct ditties: each track is an epic journey into experimental rock’s most uncharted domains.
(Le Guess Who?)

"All in all, it's a fantastic album, and a thoroughly impressive first LP. If you dig on psychedelic rock, do not let this one slip past you unheard. And if you check that box and also like to get your music on vinyl, move fast, as I expect the three hundred copies pressed on that format to move fast." (The Burning Beard / Gabriel)

_____________________________

"When the feedback kicks in we are into total freak-out territory" on Acid Rooster's debut studio LP, "an adrenaline kick to get your spaceship smashing into hyperspace. (...) The whole album has a wonderful warm feel to it, but also one that takes your mind to other places as it winds its way around its six tracks." (Freq / Gary Parson)

"Acid Rooster is digging deep into the well of far-out psychedelic rock and has created their own dimension of this mind-expanding vibrational brew". (The Psych Rock)

_____________________________


"Este é um álbum de propriedades psicotrópicas que perpetua o ouvinte num paradisíaco atordoamento capaz de o embevecer e embaciar do primeiro ao derradeiro minuto. Não será nada fácil despertar deste verdadeiro sonho acordado."
(El Coyote / Nuno Teixeira)

"Todo un viaje sideral de una intensidad superlativa en el que el hipnotismo de la kosmische musik de mediados de los setenta se ve reflejada con precisión. Magnéticos desarrollos drone acompañados de un motor rítmico implacable en los que los efectos y sintetizadores crean sonidos envolventes que nos aturden y adormecen para que el trayecto sea mas placentero." (DenpaFuzz / Roberto Lucas)

"Mit „Acid Rooster“ ist Acid Rooster ein beachtenswertes Werk im Bereich der kosmisch-psychedelischen Rockmusik gelungen." (Babyblaue Seiten / Siggy Zielinski)

_____________________________


"Die sechs Tracks zeigen das, was die Band, die sich schon seit der Kindheit kennt, auszeichnet: einen von Gitarren dominierten Mix aus Stoner, Acid Rock und Krautrock. "Oculatus Abyss" und "Sulfur" mit all dem Zischen hinter den Gitarren sind feinster Space Rock, letzteres - garniert mit Saxophon - erinnert gar an Hawkwind. "Moon Loop" besitzt einen wunderbar satten und zähen Groove. Ganz anders das schwebende ruhige "Time Lapse", das ebenso relaxt wie geschmeidig daher kommt." (Eclipsed Rock Magazin / Bernd Sievers)
