- Psychedelic music to me has always been a hit and miss. Sometimes it’s so out there that I often wonder if the ‘players’ just turn on their instruments and bash at them but then there are times when it’s done so well that there’s actual song structure to the music. UltraViolet Uforia is one of the bands that does it right. Thus making each listen more and more enjoyable.
UltraViolet Uforia’s music reminds me of many bands including The Doors, early Pink Floyd, Grateful Dead (of the limited exposure I’ve had) and The Allman Brothers. Modern bands that UltraViolet Uforia could be similar to are Phish, Umphreys’ McGee and The Carpet Knights, Mr. Brown and others on the Swedish label, Transubstans Records.
If you’re into modern or classic psychedelic spacey music then look no further than UltraViolet Uforia and their 2006 release Shadow of the Sun. I went to their website and there they have several free downloads including covers of songs by Pink Floyd, Nirvana, The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley and The Cure. You can also check out songs from Shadow of the Sun at the band’s page over at myspace.com.
UltraViolet Uforia are, in my opinion a band that bridges the past with the present without sounding dated. In fact I find them quite a refreshing alternative to many of the mainstream’s manufactured bands to ’angry’ music. I would recommend UltraViolet Uforia to the bands mentioned above and to those with an adventurous yet laid-back attitude about music.
