Sherpa The Tiger are a new band hailing from Lviv, Ukraine. With an arsenal of cheap, decrepit Soviet synthesisers, the four-piece combine a love of minimalist ambient music and the kosmische grooves that came pumping out of Eastern Europe in the 60s/70s. There’s two sides to Sherpa The Tiger, there’s the danceable almost-disco cuts that channel the funkier repetitions of CAN's Future Days LP, held together and propelled by a jagged drumbeat that Jaki Liebezeit would surely be proud of. And then there’s the more stripped-back moments, which see cosmic, ambient deconstructions that could easily have found themselves on the score of some kind of 80s crime-thriller set against the neon-lit backdrop of Miami.

The whole album is so finely crafted with effects and textures and the mix of acoustic and electronic instruments working perfectly together. This track has a wonderful vibe and I'm a sucker for that arpeggiated synth riff. Phelonius Friar

Holy smoke. One of the finest contemporary psych albums I've heard. Like an acoustic Annexus Quam meets Popul Vuh circa Brüder des Schattens meets Amon Düül circa Paradieswärts Düül meets traditional musicians from rural Iran playing Fairport Convention's Matty Groves. Forward thinking heads from southern Arizona making music as authentic and transcendent as it comes. Mushroom Head
