The Spacious Mind – The Drifter (Trail Records TR-020, 2018)

Trail Records never fails to deliver the good stuff. The Drifter is a collection of tracks by the fabulous psychedelic progressive rock band The Spacious Mind, from Sweden.

The Spacious Mind recreates the enchanting atmosphere of progressive psychedelia generated by Echoes-era Pink Floyd, with a boatload of acid guitars, vintage keyboards, spellbinding effects and modern electronic sounds.

The material on The Drifter includes tracks from the late 1990s through the mid-2000s. Great stuff indeed.
