Steve Kilbey & Martin Kennedy - Jupiter 13
Double splatter vinyl / 300 copies only worldwide.
"The Kilbey Kennedy collaboration between the church’s Steve Kilbey and All India Radio’s Martin Kennedy has yielded many wonderful tracks over the years. They return after four years with an album that comes wrapped in psychedelic prog references and takes us on epic interstellar adventures. This album shimmers with a strange beauty that’s accentuated by dark and haunting undercurrents" - theMusic.com.au
"Compelling and conceptual odyssey into the vastness of deep-space sci-fi ambience, drifting along on lush synths diffusion, ponderous strings, and rippling acoustic guitar, and also vibrantly blazing away frequently with scintillating alt-rock guitar riffs" - The Big Takeover

Jupiter 13. A foreseeable calamity. A triumph of science. The last straw. Not what you think it is.A top secret. Mans basic inhumanity to man. The impossibility according to physics. Events trigger matter. An infinite regression. A preventable catastrophe in the future.Investigations are underway. Call girls. Drugs. Photographs. Blackmail.Theft of dangerous materials. The underworld. The dark web. The manipulation of dream. The war we waged on each other and the aliens. Ray Guns and particle acceleration. The charge that blew apart the mains.Witchcraft and black magic. Playing around with Anti matter. The ordinary man in the street, a day in his life. The memory of phone calls never made.Komarovski do you read me. The colonel in the gentlemens club sloshed on gin. Debris orbits a tiny moon. Richardson is on the phone: we wanna talk to you about Jupiter 13. Yeah I bet you fucking do! Still there is music. Attack...Decay... Sustain ... Release...Richardson hangs up somewhere in the past. Time travel has been happening but the yanks won’t give us our go. And we chucked in all that money. Martin prepares an escape pod which will double as his recording studio. He will float unconscious dreaming up symphonies that will be recorded by the software encoded in his spine. Stefan H in Germany will know our mission is over and will playone last lasting sweeping arpeggio which will signal the curtains. A disaster. A mistake. A miracle. A mystery. Jupiter 13. One hundred years until they open the files. Goodnight. Im trapped in the airlock and theres no gravity.- sk Jan '21
