Some of the meanest synths I’ve ever heard! The layers of fuzz through a sonic constant brings the listener to new realms..and that magenta vinyl is wicked pretty! A must listen for any neo psychedelic fanatics like myself 😉
Favorite track: Dilated Mind.
“A superb mix of drone and spaced out psych. It’s the kind that you want playing as you hit your third peak of the night and the music becomes a symbolic cleansing of your fractured mind.” Echoes And Dust
“it’s the maximal combination of all things past, present and future all at once that open up a world of possibility.” Sic Magazine
"The Oscillation, who have created an album of vibrating joy that’ll rattle the bones of telescopes, neu! And brian Jonestown fans in equal measure. They’ve been around for some time now but we reckon this is their best yet – take the plunge." Resident Music (album of the week)
The Oscillation’s continuing journey into the centre of the mind and beyond shows absolutely no signs of slowing down. New album Untold Futures is less a consolidation of all that we’ve come to love and expect from the cosmic explorers and is more of a leap forward into an upcoming reality.
Redefining the possibilities of altered states through audio stimulation, Untold Futures finds The Oscillation at their most daring and breathtaking. A multi-layered assault on the senses, this is an unexpurgated experience for the seasoned connoisseur and unspoiled novice alike. Its power is felt in the multi-layered dissonance and undying throb of Dilated Mind, the metaphysical possibilities that beat at the heart of metronomic pulses of Forever Knowing and the face-melting attack of The Inner Void. Heart Of Nowhere is a mantra for the profane, while the dissonant beauty of Obscured realises re-birth and resurrection.
Following recent releases Droneweapon and Wasted Space, Untold Futures is an album that’s wholly distinct from its acclaimed predecessors yet unmistakably the work of Demian Castellanos, the driving force behind The Oscillation.
Revelatory in its brilliance and an intersection between the individual self and the collective unconscious, this is music to fuel the inner technology of the mind. So load up to the brim and give yourself up to Untold Futures.
The CD and digital versions of Untold Futures are augmented by ambient versions of The Inner Void, Dilated Mind and Heart Of Nowhere.
