Hidria Spacefolk- Live at Heart
From Aural Innovations #37 (Sep 2007)
Hidria is back with another live CD, this time from their debut performance at the legendary Burg Herzberg Festival in Germany. IT was recorded in July 2006. The CD has 6 songs in 65 minutes and features 4 songs from the Symetria CD, which the band was half way finished with at this time and would go into the studio just weeks after this concert to finish the last half. The CD opens with Futur Ixiom and is played quite like the version you hear on the CD. A really nice live concert sound as well. Next up is Sindran Rastafan from their debut EP. This is not one you hear all that often and a cool version with a bit of reggae. The next 3 tracks are all from the Symteria CD and all really good versions of the songs. Very tight playing and some nice spacey synths from Lokku. The CD ends with a monster version of Terrapita. Wow… No wonder the crowd were loving this band.. Really cool release. If you like Hidria, you need this one..
