Long Distance Trip - Samsara Blues Experiment

Guest post by Welsh Connexion:
Samsara Blues Experiment are a Berlin based band. As you may infer from their name, SBE combine three essential ingredients in their musical home-tabbing machine: 1 dropper of raga, 2 of experimental freakout, both shaken and bonded with a blues fixing agent. Heady stuff. Retro-style heavy psych stoner jamming. More than a passing nod to the grand krautriffing tradition but with a pleasing postmodern twist. If you like Wooden Shjips, this will float your boat.
Y brawd adds:
As WC implies, these guys can't decide if they're pre-Animals Floyd, turn of the 70s Sabbath or Maggot Brained Funkadelic. They do have some fun trying to make up their minds, mind.

WC was kind enough to "turn me on" to this when we last met. It certainly has its moment - some inspired uber-riffing and the obligatory behemoth 20 minute show closer to name but two - but it does suffer in places from a lack of direction (possibly because of what both the poster and the hoster have already hinted at as a Heinz 57 approach to parading their influences). File under "Close, can't quite remember where we put the cigar, but we'll take the big fat spliff in any case".
