France's premium psychedelic jammers DOMADORA return with their long-awaited third full-length 'Lacuna'
'Lacuna' commonly refers to the 'empty space' or 'void' from which everything takes shape. The void is at the beginning of everything: matter and time, light, sound and art. It is the starting point of the artwork. It just takes the scratching a match of creativity inside the void to generate an idea, a note, a melody ... and feelings as well as emotions are born. So how is an idea born? Where does it come from? A Big Bang. Music is a way to reach mind elevation. DOMADORA's music intends to put the willing listener into a state of trance and reach a state of elevation.
'Lacuna' is different from DOMADORA's two previous albums and recorded far from the auditoriums of 'Tibetan Monk' (2013) and 'The Violent Mystical Sukuma' (2016). Domadora is convinced that context directly influences the intuitions and colours of improvised music. That's the reason why the band has made the choice to record this album on an isolated farm in western France. Therefore, a very strong human experience and geographical isolation are on the list of ingredients of this album.
"Comprised of four-tracks of heavy psychedelic vibes led by the scorch-prone guitar of Belwil, Domadora's third album, Lacuna, follows behind 2016's The Violent Mystical Sukuma and taps quickly into a post-Earthless league of instrumentalism on opener 'Lacuna Jam.' That should be taken as a compliment, especially as regards the bass and drums of Gui Omm and Karim Bouazza, respectively, who hold down uptempo grooves there and roll along with the more structured 14-minute cut 'Genghis Khan' that follows. Each of the album's two sides is comprised of a shorter track and a longer one, and there's plenty of reach throughout, but more than expanse, even side B's 'Vacuum Density' and 'Tierra Last Homage' are more about the chemistry between the band members - Angel Hidalgo Paterna rounds out on organ - than about crafting a landscape. Fortunately for anyone who'd take it on, the Parisian unit have plenty to offer when it comes to that chemistry." THEOBELISK.NET
"Collecting references that point to bands like Earthless, Pink Floyd, Mother Engine and Karma to Burn a certain Parisian trio formed in 2011 have been electrifying minds and ear channels with a devastating sonic arsenal. Two albums already released in the pack, a sonority able to tame the psychedelia in a masterful way while assimilating it at the same time. Improvisation and warming vibrations without certain direction help to form the panel of one of the most captivating french bands of the present time, Domadora which now arrives with their third release 'Lacuna'."
