Bagger wrote about the Datashock – LiveLoveData$ (Eiderdown Records):

“When the recent batch of Eiderdown tapes arrived, I immediately recognized the heady vibes of personal faves, Planets Around the Sun.  Also, there was another tape in the package by Datashock.  With a background in quantitative analysis, I immediately thought about running regressions and trying to find an estimator that is the best, linear, unbiased estimator of its type.  However, there is nothing linear about the gorgeous, ritualistic free folk/psychedelic transmissions of Datashock, and that is an unequivocally good thing.  LiveLoveData$, by Datashock on Eiderdown Records, is pure head music for the krautrock lover in you. They meld influences from Amon Düül II to Agitation Free to Sunburned Hand of the Man, among others, into two exploratory zoners of high caliber.

LiveLoveData$ commences with the otherworldly beauty of ‘Into the Abyss’.  It begins with ethereal incantations that drift through the fog, various types of percussion, and solitary notes that echo in the mind.  The effect is one of heightened awareness.   Before long, the listener is bathed in the beautiful rhythms of ethnic percussion.  As the percussion aligns to your dome, sinuous bass and heady guitar see the collective in jam mode, communicating with the spirits.  It is a beautiful side of music.

The second track, ‘Noch Ein Bisschen Erbs’ is pure psych nectar, so drink deeply.  Compared to side A, this one is even heavier!  It begins in a similar fashion to A, with spacey effects, floating vocals, percussion, and poignant strings.  Gradually, sparse guitar and bass enter the mix.  It’s not long before the listener is catapulted into the cosmos as spacey effects hover along with Amon Düül II-like guitars and percussion.

This is a glistening nug of high quality!  The ideal music for your next crystal-covered journey.  And, at this juncture, I would not expect anything less from Eiderdown.  They know how to do things correctly.  Everything, from the artwork to the music, is excellent.  This one has left many vapor trails in my head, as it makes repeat trips through the dome.  The visuals of Max Clotfelter, which were such a beautiful component of the last batch, grace this release.  I can’t wait to see what Eiderdown releases next!  To secure a copy of this tape, i suggest contacting Eiderdown Records directly.

peace and love, friends :)”
