Michael Stevens Great EP by a very talented multi-instrumentalist. I just love his guitar playing. Quite psychedelic. NYP.

Oliver Juan Kanoi has the good approach of soft chilly music but still being deep enough to be called psych. The vocals are going to make you feel in a peacefull world. Favorite track: Mountains Of The Sun.

Fuzz FM - Stoner Rock Radio The Hendrix vibes are very much there, but not in an amateurish-wannabe kind of way, what he does with is instrument is very much his own, which I respect a lot. And the other instrumentation brings in a lot of great dynamic sounds that never get close to boring. Highly recommended. Favorite track: On And On And On.

Jonathan This EP is filled with trippy, psychedelic goodness. Mountains of the Sun is a soaring psychedelic anthem and one of my very favorite songs of the year. I lived through the first wave of psychedelic music, the Airplane, Hendrix, the Dead. I'm very happy to be able to enjoy this latest wave of mind music, much of it created by wonderful European artists like Kanoi. Favorite track: Mountains Of The Sun.


20 minutes of new, mostly instrumental music!
"Mountains Of The Sun" will be on my next full-length album due later this year!

Track Name: Mountains Of The Sun
Pt.1: Miles And Miles

watching the colours
with you by my side

all gone
so long

picking a flower
and seeing you smile

what for
no more

blue sky
stepping outside
walking for miles

wait for the night
walking for miles and miles

Pt. 2: The Mountains Of The Sun

wake up
let the starlight show the way out
light a fire in the night, a beacon burning bright
on the Mountains Of The Sun

watch out
let the moonlight show the way up
choose the path you think is right
don't know what you're trying to find
at the Mountains Of The Sun
