Mythic Sunship played three shows at the 2019 edition of Roadburn - ”Changing Shapes” documents the most ferocious and courageous of the three. It follows 2018's ”Another Shape of Psychedelic Music”, where the band incorporated saxophone player Søren Skov, and ventured deep into uncharted sonic territory, somewhere in between fuzzed out space rock and free jazz. A sound that's both challenging and deeply engaging. As the festival described the album before the
show: “The kind of album people talk about years afterward. The kind of album that isn’t for everybody, but for those whom it touches are never quite the same again.”

”Changing Shapes” is a continuation of those ideas, not just a live performance of previous material (only two tracks from ”Another Shape...” are featured on this set). Søren Skov joins the band again here as the five-piece burns through a handful of lengthy pieces in front of an ecstatic audience. It's an immersive listen, from the curious opening notes of ”Awakening”, to the relentless roar of ”Ophidian Rising”.

RIYL: Earthless, All Them Witches, Kikagaku Moyo
