Obstacles - 2011 Oscillate

Band : Obstacles
Album : Oscillate
Release Year : 2011
Genre : Mathrock | Progressive | Psychedelic | Experimental

Tracklist :
1.Trajectory of Loose Ends   
4.Sleeping Pills

Having perfected the controlled, well-structured output on Dividual – a relentless musical assault of tightness and timing - the band felt an urge to tackle the song-writing in a completely different way. Loosing up, Letting go. Trying to make the impossible, possible by making complex music flow in a more free form. After a swift and spontaneous writing-process, 4 tracks were ready to be captured.
Obstacles teamed up with their friend Sune Kaarsberg to begin the recordings of Oscillate in their studio. This was a very dynamic process filled with experiments in sound and form. The result is breathtaking. Like being caught in a beautiful storm where chaos and energy reigns.

While still somewhat futuristic in its aesthetics, Oscillate can also be considered a nod back to a hazy forgotten past, paying homage to legends of prog-rock and jazz-fusion whilst still maintaining the punchiness and vigor of their previous releases.
