Named for one of earth's most ancient subcontinents, VAALBARA was formed by Seattle music scene veterans Dennis Rea and Peter Comley (guitars), Ffej (vocals, electronics), Cary Kindberg (bass, vocals), and Doug Wilkerson (drums) to interpret lesser-known gems from the psychedelic/space-rock era. The band's mind-expanding set - featuring tunes by such path-breakers as former collaborator Nik Turner, very early Floyd, Hawkwind, Captain Beyond, Amon Duul II, and more - bursts with heavy riffage, swirling kosmische textures, and outlandish lyric themes, rocketing listeners back to the days of the underground.
