Ectogram's music incorporates all the gripping elements of psychedelic rock. With a drumbeat that
placidly pulsates through a dense web of guitar sounds and voice, „fluff on a faraway hill“ travels
through the same ragged mountainous terrain My Bloody Valentine would call home, yet it clearly
finds its musical kin in the 70s. Comfortably exploring seemingly borderless territory Ectogram's music culminates in anthem-like arrangements. The songs are constantly evolving, thereby naturally unleashing a stream of associations in the listener. The female voice, recorded on multiple tracks, drowns in delay and flanger. Yet despite their passion for musical free-wheeling, Ectogram never ceases to honor classic songwriting, which provides a solid framework to the otherwise rather organic sessions. Timeless stuff.

“Die Songs erinnern in ihrer zeitlosen Untrendyness oft an Neil Youngs Countryrock-Exzesse” SOUND &  RECORDING  (Ger)
“Welsh Kraut-Psychers stage something of a departure from their recent extended fuzz workouts, swelling into the interstellar realms of muscular, multi-layered psychedelic rock and avant dreampop”  PLAN B  (UK)
