Perilymph, hailing from Germany, has unveiled their fourth studio album, "Progressions Imaginaires," a foray into the realms of melodic Psychedelic/Space Rock. Spanning 11 tracks and lasting 45 minutes, the album represents a significant evolution for the band. Originating as a project by French multi-instrumentalist Fabien de Menou living in Berlin, Perilymph has evolved from solo bedroom endeavors to a full-band enterprise, a transformation vividly captured in this release.

"Progressions Imaginaires" was born out of a period of introspection and renewed focus for the band, after stepping away from their usual performing and recording. This time of isolation became a crucible for musical experimentation, birthing their most ambitious and varied compositions yet.

Perilymph

This album not only encapsulates their musical voyage but also establishes a new standard for their forthcoming endeavors. It definitely represents their most refined work to date...If their previous records didn't capture your attention, this one is bound to change your mind.

Musically, the album merges the quintessential elements of Kraut Rock with layers of psychedelic innovation, crafting an enthralling listening experience. This meld resembles a fusion of Pink Floyd's experimental edge, Mike Oldfield's instrumental sensibilities, Kraut Rock's foundational spirit, and Ange's narrative depth, showcasing Perilymph's skill in harmonizing diverse musical traditions into a unique, personal sound. The collaborative spirit among band members shines through, culminating in a creation that is expansive, yet deeply introspective.

"Progressions Imaginaires" emerges as a landmark release for Perilymph, highlighting their artistic maturation and flexibility. This album not only encapsulates their musical voyage but also establishes a new standard for their forthcoming endeavors. It definitely represents their most refined work to date, demonstrating a commendable commitment to their artistry and a successful pivot through a time of significant transformation. If their previous records didn't capture your attention, this one is bound to change your mind.
