El Paraiso

POWERFULLY great and hard rockin' stuff from this great quartet who blaze through long instrumental works!

"The first official live album from Causa Sui, recorded in the early summer of 2013 at midnight, headlining the outdoor festival Freak...

"Includes MP3/FLAC download code for complete contents plus three bonus tracks.
Live In Copenhagen captures Causa Sui at two very special nights: at the release parties of Euporie Tide and Return To Sky. Since the band seldomly performs live, this may very well be the best chance to experience what the band are capable of at their best. One show was recorded at avant-garde institution extraordinaire, Jazzhouse, while the other captures Causa Sui at legendary underground venue Dragens Hule....

Another great one from a band with two previous killer releases! This is great, space/stoner/kraut rock for the modern age. Highly recommended!

"This Danish four-piece unashamedly reference such esteemed cosmic talents as Blue Cheer, Guru Guru...

While our limited quantities last, you can get this brand new album for $6.00 off the regular price! But there's a set number and when they are gone, they're gone!!

"Causa Sui are back with Return To Sky, the successor to 2013's Euporie Tide, which consolidated the band as a crucial underground force in the European psych scene and spread their unique...

Solo endeavor by the guitarist / vocalist / keyboardist in Astra! This is definitely different than Astra, and, like it implies below, is more an electric jazz/rock alb

"Rarely has the feeling of late summer twilight been captured as well on record as on this collaborative effort by Southern California native Brian Ellis and South Carolina ambient producer Brian Grainger. This is the sound of two offbeat musicians zoning out with acoustic guitars, hand drums, flutes, and an array of vintage synthesizers and tape machines, brewing a mysterious, mellow kind of acid folk like it's never quite been brewed before. Though psychedelic in nature, this isn't yet another...

"Connecticut's Landing have specialized in a mild and rural kind of psychedelia since the late '90s; they have since moved closer to post-punk and shoegaze territory, but Third Sight -- recorded specifically for El Paraiso Records' Impetus series -- builds on the hallucinatory soundscapes of the band's earliest days. There's a unique sense of motoric drift to these four long pieces, and an organic blend of rock instrumentation and analog electronics that brings to mind Eno's best collaborations in the...

"No other band channels the color, warmth and energy of the coastal SoCal scenery as well as San Diego's Monarch. Their debut album Two Isles was recorded and produced by local glitterati Brian Ellis. It's full of breezy Allman Brothers guitar leads gliding effortlessly on top of gentle, and sometimes not so gentle, prog-rock structures. With supreme musicianship, they somehow connect the dots between classic California rock, prog, pastoral pop and the vivid, expansiveness of early 1990s British shoegaze...

Great solo album by the guitarist of Causa Sui, this has a heavy krautrock vibe and reminds me of a slighly updated "D" by Deuter and you KNOW that that is a great thing! Unconditionally recommended to Krautrock fans. ...

"Debut album from Copenhagen quartet, Mythic Sunship . The destination is transcendence alright, but the vehicle, ultimately, is assembled from decades of rock - where ferocious drum-pounding and thick, geezery basslines adds fuel to an endless pyre of blazed-out dual fuzz guitar action. This stuff is wild. Spiritually, the band seems connected to present day So-Cal psych-rock, but listening to Ouroboros, also reveals the band's strong ties to the Copenhagen underground scene: members of the band...

"Copenhagen's Papir are arresting. Their guitar, bass and drums mesh powerfully in an intense, jazz-inflected instrumental rock. Voyaging through post-rock Tortoise terrain, it nods towards Hawkwind's freakouts and employs liberal dollops of wah-wah...

"After four studio albums, Papir unleash their first live album. It's surprising it took so long, since the band's shows have long been revered among fans. Recorded at the 2014 Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands, where Papir were asked to...

"Despite the rumors, pre-fusion acid jazz-rock is alive and well, living it up in Southern California. Psicomagia is the joint forces of leading members of noted prog and stoner-rock outfits Astra and Radio Moscow. The band serves up a mixture of the...

"Causa Sui drummer Jakob Skøtt is back with the third installment in his "drums versus synthesizers" explorations. Fully indulging in this strange form of layered solo jams, these tracks are alive in a very real sense -- there's an organic vibe present in which monophonic synthesizers and polyphonic rhythms merge in a way you've never heard before. Any reference to other music and genres gets warped and turned on its head, quicker than you can catch onto it, as everything is weaved together in a...

"The third album from Causa Sui drummer Jakob Skøtt expands his one-man-band experiments into vast new territories. Taurus Rising is built from motorik synthesizer arpeggios and heavy-duty live drumming. But rather than simply worshipping endless...

"Solo is the first solo album from Papir guitarist Nicklas Sørensen. While there are certain similarities with the oeuvre Sørensen has created with Papir, it quickly becomes apparent that this is something quite different. Throughout Solo, the Copenhagen native explores his primary instrument, the guitar, as a generator of otherworldly sounds, as a compositional tool, and -- perhaps most importantly -- as a transmitter of pristine, cascading melodies. There's a peaceful, savory quality to the album that...

Fine Danish band with a wide-open, jammy sound, just like their electric big brothers Causa Sui, but much more acoustic oriented. There's songs but also a lot of instrumental parts that showcase the players. This is very warm and inviting music; it...
