Hofmann’s Kaleidoscope Vol.1 – Expiation of the Psychedelic Hunters Compilation
I love compilations. They are like pot-luck-dinners, where everyone brings what they think is their best and you can find dishes you never heard of or tasted before. Compilations just differ in that there’s someone who selects and arranges all the contributions and if this is done carefully a compilation is a buffet of delicacies.
The Hofmann’s Kaleidoscope Vol.1 – Expiation of the Psychedelic Hunters Compilation is such a delicacy. It is put together very expertly by the guys from the Italian printed magazine Vincebus Eruptum and the webzine Perkele.it and it is a supplement to the magazine’s 14th issue.
They selected 12 awesome tracks of 12 different Italian underground bands and arranged them into a buffet with dishes of acid, stoner, garage, and kraut rock – flavoured spacey, heavy, progressive, ambient or psychedelic.
This is about 78 minutes of excellent interesting widely varied Italian stoner sounds to explore.
