Sendelica will be back on Fruits de Mer just in time for their 16th Dream of Dr. Sardonicus summer festival, and with something of a harder edge for this latest installment in their Welsh chronicles. As it’s Part 3, it’ll have a 3D front cover (& 3D glasses) and come as a set of three 10″ records – all just for the hell of it. Pressed on colour vinyl, naturally.
Here’s a little context to the new recordings:
Back in 2006 Sendelica recorded their debut album, “Entering The Rainbow Light“. at Mwnci Studios in the magical landscape of West Wales.
It was to be almost another decade before the band returned to that studio in what is turning into a regular gathering of like-minded musical souls in search of new musical paths that have become known as the “Cromlech Chronicle” sessions.
An annual two days of simply playing, improvising and recording to see where the musical muse leads the group members. August 2017 saw the regular Sendelica line-up swell its ranks to a six piece band with the addition of a second drummer Gregory Curvey (from The Luck of Eden Hall) and keyboardist Roger Morgan.
After 2016’s recordings of cerebral ambiance (“Cromlech II“) the new line up explored both pastoral pastures in “Teifi Marshes“, “12 Shades Revisited” and “Star Flower Blossom” alongside searing psychedelic prog workouts “Slow Burner“, “BS“, and “Lost Citi of Cardiza“.
The 3×10” set contains:
- BS (6:39)
- Slow Burner (12:41)
- 12 Shades Revisited (10:58)
- Teifi Marshes (9:14)
- Star Flower Blossom (14:40)
- Lost City of Cardiza (8:43)
