The first official live album from Causa Sui, recorded in the early summer of 2013 at midnight, headlining the outdoor festival Freak Valley in Netphen, Germany. This full 90-minute Causa Sui set comes hot off the heels of 2013’s acclaimed studio effort Euporie Tide (EPR 013CD/LP), and is a condensed manifestation of the low-end heavy side of the band. This show presents the band in elemental quartet mode and features a wide palette of cuts from the entire catalog. From the band’s signature cut “El Paraiso” from their 2005 debut, through revamps of the more translucent Summer Sessions material, straight up to virgin jams, fresh from the rehearsal room. Over the course of the last eight years, Causa Sui have become one of the most venerated acts in European psychedelia, due to shows on all the major genre festivals as well as a revered string of albums and collaborations. With their unique blend of old and new sounds, from mammoth riffage to pastoral soundscapes, Causa Sui is something of an anomaly in today’s musical landscape. This set serves as a great introduction for anyone unfamiliar with the band’s distinctive take on instrumental psychedelic rock. And for the fans, it’s simply a must-have. Mixed and mastered by Jonas Munk from multi-track recordings, this set sounds as warm and crisp as any of the albums.
