Øresund Space Collective is a totally improvised space rock band from Copenhagen and southern Sweden.
This is the bands 15th studio album. The material was recorded in April 2012 and features American guitarist, Daniel Lars as well as all the players in the Danish band Papir.
The artwork (by the amazing Eetu Pellonpää) is inspired by the book, Poets ranked by Beard Weight by Upton Uxbridge Underwood. A Pogonoligist is someone who studies beards! I love this book and as I have a long beard and many in the band are also bearded it was a nice theme for us to explore.
The music on this double LP / double CD, was mixed in 2014 by Dr. Space with sound engineering by Johan Dahlstöm. There are some different tracks on the CD vs the LP versions, where the LP versions of some songs were edited to fit with vinyl and the complete longer jams are included on the CD version.
More details are in the liner notes and insert for the LP and in the booklet for the CD.
