Sounds | Ananda Mida - The Medicine Man Is Looking For A Cure (live)

Alessandro Tedesco mag zich de eerste vier minuten uitleven tijdens een solo die hij zelf de beste noemt die hij ooit heeft geschreven. Hij neemt ons inderdaad mee op een heerlijke psychedelische trip die enkel maar versterkt wordt wanneer zanger Conny Ochs de microfoon grijpt. Wanneer je de collage van videobeelden bekijkt, kan je er niet omheen dat een live concert meemaken van dit gezelschap als een droom moet zijn, al dan niet versterkt door het gebruik van enkele al dan niet verboden substanties.

Live at Duna Jam verschijnt op 12 juni 2024 via Heavy Psych Sounds.

Ter Info

Ananda Mida is a stoner and psychedelic rock music collective led by Max Ear (OJM’s drummer and Go Down Records’ Art Director) and Matteo Pablo Scolaro. From the very beginning of the project, graphic imagery has been given a crucial role thanks to the precious collaboration with the visual artist Eeviac. Since 2015, they have been performing with different lineups, from three to six members, either as an instrumental outfit or featuring singers such as Conny Ochs. Their sound is inspired by seventies rock, mixed with desert and psychedelic grooves.

About the live album, the band comments: “On Tuesday, June 20, 2023, we had the privilege of performing live for the Duna Jam audience as the sun set over the beach and heat waves, along with sandstorms, rose from the Sahara to the west. It was an unforgettable concert that left a profound emotional impact on us as the entire scene and atmosphere seemed to “crystallize” in its own unique space-time, so to speak.

In 2015, Ananda Mida debuted with the double A-sided 7-inch "Aktavas/Passavas", which gave rise to the band’s mythology, elaborated from some fragments of enigmatic teachings. In 2016 they released their first full-length, co-produced by Go Down Records and Vincebus Eruptum Recordings: "Anodnatius" reminds us of all the positive forces and slight vibrations settled inside and outside everything and everyone. In January 2019, the second chapter "Cathodnatius" was published, depicting all the opposing forces and obscure vibes we live in today. This record featured Conny Ochs on vocals and was released via Go Down and Vincebus Eruptum. In June 2021, the band put out the "Karnak" live EP featuring a special appearance from desert rock icon Mario Lalli on guitar. November 2023 has seen the release of their third work "Reconciler" on Go Down Records, completing the trilogy and evoking the resolution of the contrast between the opposing forces sung in the previous chapters, as a hymn to reconciliation.

Ananda Mida has performed throughout Europe, supporting bands like BRMC, Black Mountain, Colour Haze, Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man, The Atomic Bitchwax, Nebula, and White Hills.
