SKU 05-EPR 003LP
“Who are these guys? Where did this come from?”, I asked myself and you 15 years ago when this first showed up; a Danish band on a German label! Now we know a bit more and this is as good (or better) than I remembered it!!
Causa Sei are a Danish who started life as a heavy/stoner rock band, but for this album they pared down to an instrumental guitar/bass/drums trio and added a keyboardist and a saxist. These albums seem to be a distillation of a huge number of recordings that the band made over a summer with this quintet lineup.
The sound ranges from heavier stylings that recall their stoner rock roots, blended with more jazz/rock sounds. The sounds you will hear here are reminiscent of jammy, jazz-rock oriented Krautrock (Embryo circa Rock Session and Steig Aus, Electric Orange, Can, Xhol, Out of Focus) blended with Tangle Edge, Soft Machine, Jimi Hendrix.
Very groove oriented in a good way and very focused for music that obviously came out of lots of jamming/improvising.

“Originally the Summer Sessions were intended as a side project for the band -- a chance to explore their love for other genres such as American free jazz, krautrock, 1970s soundtracks, as well as the psychedelia and detuned stoner-rock that characterized Causa Sui's first two albums. But these three albums came to define the band, and have become modern classics of psychedelia and progressive rock since their initial release ten years ago. In a scene often characterized by loyalty to a specific period, there's something refreshing about Causa Sui's eclectic approach.”
