Lüger-Lüger(space rock Spain 2010)

I just listened to this really good album from Lüger.
Lüger is a Madrid-based quintet formed by Diego (guitar, main vocals), Dani (bass, vocals), Mario (organ, synth, vocals), Rulo (drums, samplers, effects, vocals) and Lopin (floor tom, metal sheets, percussion). They play or played in other bands such as Los Imposibles, The Awesome J'Haybers, Tres Delicias, Steelwood or Jet Lag, although Lüger is by far the most psychedelic of them all. First jam was back in Nov 2008, first show in March 2009. After playing a bunch of shows with the likes of The Intelligence, Shooting Spires, Blues Control or Rosvita, they recorded their first LP in September 2009 with famous Spanish producer Paco Loco in El Puerto de Santa Maria, Cadiz. It was mixed and mastered by Ruben Suarez at Red Led studios in Madrid. The LP will be released on April 15th, 2010, but it is also free to download off the band's bandcamp site http://luger.bandcamp.com. They are signed to Spanish underground label/promoter Giradiscos (www.giradiscos.org)

They are heavily influenced by classic acts such as Hawkwind, Faust, Neu! or Caravan but their sound is not vintage and rather modern. Their high-energy songs could remind you of modern-day psych-heads Oneida, Wooden Shjips or The Black Angels.
