Alber Jupiter will bring their atmospheric tapestry of ecstasy and infinity to Roadburn 2020

Heavily inspired by Chilean Krautrock-afficinados Föllakzoid, both Nicolas Terroitin (bass) and drummer Jonathan Sonney found themselves at a show, only to come together, and start experimenting as a two-piece – reunited after being part of other bands.

As they began to jam, the stars aligned, and their new constellation, Alber Jupiter, took shape from the depths of their own experimental yet electrifying universe, resulting in a sprawling Saturnine lunarscape. It’s the beautifully acceding trajectory of their hallucinatory grooves, drenched in pulsating washes of delay and reverb, that makes their debut full-length, We’re Just Floating In Space, such an intoxicating affair.

No wonder that Alber Jupiter’s throbbing soundscapes will appeal to fans of Neu!, Can, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, as well as those of Dutch trance-rock legends 35007. Bearing the band’s atmospheric tapestry of ecstasy and infinity in mind, all we could do was simply ask Alber Jupiter to guide us through their impressive rhythmic imagination on Friday, 17 April. Roadburn 2020 – we have lift off.
