Motorpsycho’s latest album, ”Little Lucid Moments”, is out now on Rune Grammofon (RCD 2073, or double LP RLP 3073). Hans Magnus Ryan, Bent Sæther and Kenneth Kapstad cook up some mean powerpsychoprogmetal. The reviewers in the Norwegian media disagree on how good this album is, but for me it works just fine. I think I can hear some great (?) prog bands here (one song out of four is a suite in four parts, no less!) mixed with some Metallica and a touch of Grateful Dead , but it still is pure Motorpsycho. If they are going to stretch out any of this material live, we will get two numbers during a concert, that is before the set of encores. Tour info from Rune:
