Jakob Rehlinger and his kosmische Heavy Moon studio project are well known to the TimeMaZine pages as we have reviewed most numbers of his Heavy Moon releases… And of course, we have enjoyed ALL of them! With Jakob’s “Heavy Moon 20” release I’m happy and excited for one more reason, I and all 300 of you out there, are going to experience this release on our beloved format, a vinyl record! The German label Clostridium Records is going to release it as a very limited edition…
Label’s press release reads:
“Heavy Moon is the studio project of Canadian multi-instrumentalist Jakob Rehlinger. Fueled by his kosmische synths and psychedelic guitar work, Rehlinger has uses Heavy Moon as an astral bridge to take listeners to the outer reaches of space. ‘Heavy Moon XX’ is the twentieth studio album from Heavy Moon and is comprised of two side-long, twenty-minute compositions, recorded in 2020. After 14 years and 19 albums, it’s the culmination of the vision for Heavy Moon Rehlinger has had for the psychedelic spacerock project since the the first Heavy Moon release in 2006. Blending classic late ’60s acid rock with early ’70s prog, krautrock, and proto-metal, he’s woven a sonic tapestry of trippy, mind-bending sounds and textures to aid the listener in their own astral travels. No additional psychedelics needed”…
Written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jakob Rehlinger at AUX13, New Toronto, September – October 2020.

“Heavy Moon XX” contains 2 side-long compositions, 20 minutes each! “Cosmodrome” is a sonically adventurous Intergalactic SPACE Trip, mysterious and interesting, becoming psychedelically spacey dominated by a thrilling shimmering electric guitar sounding! This SPACE adventure continues on “Floating Cities”, a little more atmospheric sound with a let-loose dream-a-spacey scenery, with a guitar that unfolds unique colorful and full of Cosmic energy musical soundscapes, a track that flirts with late 70s Prog but ending in a serene ambient way, giving you the feeling of a “safe-back-home” trip! “Heavy Moon 20” is an Astral travel experience without even leaving the ground!
