Good news, from Switzerland friends Ariane Bertogg and Marc Walser are back with one kick ass motherfucker new band. And this thing seriously slays.
If you are somewhat familiar with them through their past releases beside Ginger , then you know about these mates, so only enter this under the assumption that it’s a different band´s structure but sound same of great that Ginger.
I think their time that spent with their previous project has rubbed off on them in the best way. Following that same structured songwriting path on Ginger has finally led them beside David Zurbuchen to a magical place called Marblewood, where they don’t have strayed from the long,drawn out,flat-jammed-epics that make them so lovable.
So, here,they go for the gold meshing carefully acid prog ,psych, and vintage hard rock styles into one awesome record, sinking into those heavy,deep drones from time to time, with a chemistry between them really amazing, making a totally solid psychedelic rock album.
Take a listen, and see for yourself if my hypothesis is in the true-
Vinyl out now, anyway It’s “name your price” on bandcamp, so grab it for free or toss them some francs.

**VINYL AND CDs**
The long awaited Marblewood-debute album has finally arrived on CD and finest 180g double vinyl! We are ready to ship.
Whenever skilled and experienced musicians, rooted in rock music, embark on an endeavour to experimenting with sounds and collide with multiple styles improvising on a suspiciously high level, odds are about the same as observing the explosion of a dieing star: it does happen from time to time, but usually noone is present at the right time and place to keep record of it. Luckily this won’t happen to the music of MARBLEWOOD. Like a warm golden light those ever-changing musical supernovae evolving in jams reach out on their recipients immediately, hooking them on their incredible freshness and playfulness. Blues-fused guitar solos meet heavy desert rock riffs, jazzy beats, electronic grooves and floydian psychedelia. Long instrumental passages feature additional organ and dilruba. The guys at the controls of that scenery have teamed up from different groups in the swiss psychedelic and jamband scene: Marc Walser (guitars, vocals), Dave Zurbuchen (drums, vocals, keys) and Arie Bertogg (bass). Marblewoods first album, which is at the same time the official announcement of the band itself, promises a timeless listening experience that glows far beyond the tides of trends or fashion.
