Right at the beginning of Shaman Elephant's second seven-track album, the listener is put into a time machine: "Wide Awake But Still Asleep", the title of the album, rumbles away towards the late 60s and early 70s. We stop at early prog and wild psychedelic, at Scandinavian rock and bizarre dreamy Canterbury sound. "We play a rather crude style mix," keyboardist Jonas Særsten readily admits.
In a month in which the wonderful third album by Dawes, which sets new standards for retro West Coast rock, will also be released, an album like "Adios I'm A Ghost" will of course be a bit off the mark.
