Tunes to match the buzz of summer: New Monarch -band album. Also our synth-wiz Rasmus has a new record out with his kosmische duo Astral TV - check out their track here: https://soundcloud.com/elparaiso/astral-tv-different-dreams
"What’s striking, listening back after nearly a decade, is that the set of three records sounds as timeless as anything in the band’s catalog or on the label’s roster. While the sidelong crusher “Visions of Summer” trades in some liquid stringwork, a la Ripley Johnson, it more directly nods to Future Days’ crossbreed of Krautrock and Dead-indebted exploratory jams. Each of the LPs winds between face-melter psychedelia and more nuanced visions of Ash Ra Temple’s tangle, 70’s Miles mind expansion, and Blue Cheer’s bottom-end fuzz rumble. Live favorite “Rip Tide” tears at the psyche with molten guitars and Rasmussen’s relentless sax. The third LP is more languid, melting into pools of shimmer, but it’s still occasionally beset by the band’s flash paper burn of guitar." Raven Sings The Blues

Happy new year everybody - We've got a bunch of reissues coming out next year - also we put up an official Instagram account: https://www.instagram.com/causasuis/
The 2018 edition of Free Ride is out now! Here's a long thoughtful review from The Obelisk: "whether being viewed as a document of modern heavy psych in the making or just as a killer heavy rock record with immersive jams, natural tones and a soulful vocal and instrumental execution, there’s no question it stands up to the 11 years since it first arrived"
Old or new version? "Revisiting my own artwork 11 years later. Original release from 2007 on top - 2018 re-release on bottom. I know some people have a hard time with artworks changing like this. But I always felt like the idea of a book cover changing over time, creating a wide range of different editions, made more sense than the concept of the "sacred album art". Also this is remastered by @jonasmunksounds and a 2xLP with a live bonus track on our own label - the original was a 12" + 7" on #elektrohaschrecords - so not technically the same release at all." https://www.instagram.com/p/BpwyrlIF_In/
Beautiful writeup on Free Ride over at Complex Distractions. "Free Ride is an essential step in the creation and evolution of what Causa Sui has grown into. The DNA to which Return To Sky, Euporie Tide, Pewt’r Sessions, and even the epic live showcases like Live at Freak Valley and Live in Copenhagen are made of can be traced back to those first two Causa Sui records, and in-particular Free Ride."
