The Kaleidoscopic Kat And It's Autoscopic Ego = Papersleeve = (CD)
Wales' Sendelica deliver another mouthful, and more importantly, an earful on The Kaleidoscopic Kat And Its Autoscopic Ego. An elastic offering to say the least, Kat really does about offer it all for the tasteful voyager. The light show offers penetrating and gliding space rock, psychedelic loosening, exotic hints, acid blues stepping stones, whiffs of ambient and Krautrock embers in more than some of the electronic accents (It's The Neu! Kosmiche Disko, a wonderful example), requisite fireworks when needed ... all with progressive coating for supple soundscapes no matter where you lay your finger to get the pulse.

And that's where Kat finds its trademark this outing, in the sprawl, in breadth rather than pure take-off. Which there is plenty off ... Kat can take off, but instead of an insistent forward drive of a lot of space rock has (and thrives on), Sendelica opt for side-trips that obviously aren't the most direct between A and B, but offer a more scenic route. Throughout, sometimes near point A or B, Sendelica offer up a whiff and glance of some other possibility (check the outro for Tinsel Tears), but it vapors out--or in--passing briefly before the next cut begins its flow. That may sound frustrating, having hints and red-herrings, but it works to Kat's strength by making the scope seem even more encompassing, if not intri
