The Spacious Mind - "Club Rothko 060906"
(God Damn I'm a Countryman Records 2006, CCDR005)
From Aural Innovations #34 (August 2006)
This is number 5 of the Spacious Minds God Damn I'm a countryman records limited edition (200 copies) CD-R releases. This is recorded in New York City while the band were over playing at a larger festival in the USA. This CD-R features 3 tracks in 60 minutes and is the pretty standard set that the band has been playing the last 3 years. The CD opens with a long trippy version of The Cinnamon Tree. It gets quite spaced out and noisy towards the end. This is a band that is always experimenting. Next up is E6, which is very Pink Floyd like in nature and trippy until it picks it up around 16-17 minutes and starts to freak out. Full on psychedelic rock Baby! A 19 minute version of The One That Really Won The War ends the CD. This time the spacey trippy part only last until 10 minutes before the band kicks it up into high gear. Great soundboard-audience recording but the drums are quite thin sounding. If you are a fan of the band, you must have this for sure.
