SILOAH - Siloah (Germany 1970) @320


Siloah were a German progressive psych / folk band in the vein of Kalacakra, Langsyne and others "curiosities". A collective hippie musical tribe largely inspired by mysticism, LSD and sexadelism. Their music features a heavy use of stoned vocals (in English), mantric like guitar parts, flute, "ethnic" percussions. Their first drugged item released in 1970 offers a dangerous and imaginative ocean of trippy, perpetual jammings. A bombastic psychedelic explosion in the mood of the best german prog folk releases. The atmospheres are beautifully "acoustic", sometimes dreamy and ethereal but never away from krautrock "primitive" sound.

Hi there !
thanks for this Siloah LP : this is one of my favorite German bands, this album is a true listening experience, absolutely fascinating.

While I'm here, I wanted to thank both of you, GalacticGarden & Pepsonic, for this blog. I don't know if you realize, but it's a real goldmine !
I appreciate vinyl rips : even when there's little scratches here & there, they often sound better, or at least more natural, than the CD reissues (when they exist).
I was listening yesterday to Mother Tucker Yellow Ducks, and this is the 1st time I appreciate their 1st LP so much, for example : it's an important record, one of those opening the way to the country-rock fusion to come.

Well, be blessed, brothers !!!
Thanks again, and see you later.

Fantástica guitarra marcada por los acordes de sus cuerdas, Inconfundibles y extraños ritmos que dejan quererse por esa sencillez tan natural de reflejar la música sin imitaciones.
Un disco alejado de esas macroproduciones discográficas que les hacen vestirse con sus mejores galas para su presentación en el mercado.
Para Siloah, sus galas son su espontaneidad, su naturalidad y su MUSICA en letras mayúsculas.
Un disco GRANDE.
Gracias PEP SONIC por este encuentro musical tan gratificante.
Un disco 10.
La portada es preciosa, muy original.
