Acid Mother Temple & The Cosmic Inferno - Pink Lady Lemonade- You're From Out of Space [Riot Season - 2008]

This new Slice of the ever expanding AMT cake find’s the band in a rather mellow, laid back and spacey mood, with the album more cursing and hovering than fire-up, rocking & brain melting

Much of the albums life is based around two versions of the ATM classic and live favourite track Pink Lady Lemonade with one version bookend either end the album. The first version that opens up the album starts out with clean strummed guitar, spacey synth swishes, female vocalising and Gong like space whispers. Shortly the rest of the bands singing comes in and is rather nicely harmonised and interweaving with each other, before we drop into a rather nice and relatively feed-back free guitar solo for the rest of the track. The version at the other end of the album has a more epic and almost harmonic post-rock feel about it, it start’s off with a  fairly clean sounding take on the  Pink Lady Lemonade riff before bursting into more rocking and building mode. The two tracks in-between the Pink lady Lemonade are; Message from space which starts off with expanding spacey Glissando Guitar, female space whispers and vocalising again with quite a Gong vibe. Midway in it cracks into 70’s harmonic space rock riff with of course spacey synth curls and ebbs around it. And the other track is Take me to the universes which starts off with synth space whizzes and wails before dropping into a mixture of Glissando Guitar space guitar meets Hawaiian vibe that slowly build’s up into slightly more rocking vibe, but never gets too fiery- with some male harmonic singing over the top.

All in all another rewarding & consistent album from the AMT that really shows the more mellow & harmonic side of their sound. But with still some great soloing and building moments with-in the tracks.
