"Coldvalley Sessions Vol. 1" is the first of two fragmentary recordings made during a two-day session of droned out psychedelia, recorded at the edge of the forest near our hometown of Stuttgart.

When the collective finally got back together again, spirits were high and the mood for experimentation was strong - so we decided to invite some like-minded friends to jam along with us.

While raw, noisy and unhinged at times, these recordings capture the atmosphere and creative spirit of those two days in their very essence: A liberating indulgence in walls of sound and a cathartic rite of collective improvisations.

Both sessions have been carefully remastered to clear up the sound and to unearth more details and nuances of each instrument utilised during the recordings.
