Rising from a 4 years hiatus, The East Rome’s TRANS UPPER EGYPT finally strikes back with a new LP, following up the two previous albums, both on the Austin based MONOFONUS PRESS.
After a few line up changes, Simne Donadni (Rainbow Island) definitely joins the band with his avant primitive drumming, beside the former members Bob Junior (Holiday Inn / Bobsleigh Baby) and Leo Non (WoW!). These new tracks, recorded near Turin in the Farm / Studio run by Boto (Movie Star Junkies / OaXacA) bring a pretty clear evolution in their sound, without any changes to their attitude: hypnotic trance Songs assembled with a mix of primal Kraut and psych vibes, repetitive Dub bass and Afro beats, acid Synth lines and roared mantras recited by a blurred enchanting voice. Seven killer tracks make this album essential for everyone who digs Italian 70’s tunes, german Kraut, minimal synth punk and psych travels (with or without drugs).
Recorded at Boto's farm, Cuneo, Italy.
Mixed and mastered by Valerio Fisik at HombreloboStudio (Rome) in january 2018.
Artwork cover by Matteo Pozzi.
Co-produced by No=Fi Recordings (049) & MyOwn PrivateRecords (029).
released October 1, 2018
