Ensemble Rue Du Nord - Psycho Banda (Vinyl 12”)

Psycho Banda is the eighth release of Rue du Nord, a Lausanne-based ensemble active since the year 2000. Navigating between psychedelic rock, progressive free fanfare and trippy, repetitive electronic music, the piece extends over 30 minutes, focusing on the ensemble's obsessive riffs and collective energy. With a hypnotic trance that slides imperceptibly between several neighboring pulses, along with psychedelic sounds and frenetic rhythms, Psycho Banda is sure to move listeners' feet and stimulate synaptic connections.
