If you're looking for it, you'll also find Krautrock elements and psychedelia in Jupiter Lion's new album. There are the naïve, stoic rhythms whose simplicity is downright provocative. There are all sorts of weird to very weird digital sounds that could actually expand consciousness. But actually the Spanish trio on "Brighter" presents rather a strange independent version based on electronics. Not for nothing the instrumentarium consists of bass, drums and machines according to the credits. And sometimes there's a little singing. So it's the permanently driving grooves that dominate all eight tracks. Sometimes they are surrounded by very simple synth sounds, sometimes by howling melodies. This is sometimes of dubious quality and could be meant as a caricature. But there are also wonderfully swirling sounds that play on the field between ambient, jazz, alternative and techno. You have to attest Jupiter Lion that they have created something extraordinary.
