Giöbia Announce Spring European Tour Supporting Plasmatic Idol


Italy’s Giöbia return after four years on Feb. 7 with their new album, Plasmatic Idol, which is as unplaceably ’80s synthy as the name would seem to indicate, on Heavy Psych Sounds, and following a release gig in their native Milan, the band will embark on a round of European tour dates — you know, Germany and some of those other nations who aren’t Germany — to support the record. Notable are three stops at the Heavy Psych Sounds Fest that’s of course thrown by their label, and a secret show in Bielefeld that rounds out on May 30. I don’t know about you, but I’m curious as to what’s going on in Bielefeld, Germany, on May 30. Club show? Secret headliner? Can’t-talk-about-it-yet festival appearance? Inquiring minds want to know.

I may or may not actually find out, but so it goes. There are a couple shows without venues listed, so I’ll assume those confirmations are in the works, but either way, looks like a good run and the album rules, so keep an eye/ear/tongue out, and if you’re somewhere in the world where you get to go, good on ya.

The new Giöbia album “Plasmatic Idol” is simply impressive: a collection of different sounds and atmospheres, brings the listener to another sidereal world full of dreams and mind travels. You can clearly feel the influence of certain Pink Floyd in some passages but also pinches of Italian Progressive Rock, Horror Soundtrack from 70’s movies, garage 60’s influences, US West Coast Psychedelia, and late 60’s Space Rock a la Hawkwind The production is delicate and smooth, the album flows without interruptions and the music immerses your mind in a cosmic dimension. The vintage organs and synthesizers are used in the best way possible, 8 tracks that capture your attention without distraction. Produced by Bazu the guitar player and singer of the band and Mixed and Mastered By Brett Orrison (Black Angels, Jack White) at Spaceflight Records in Austin, Texas. The Great cover album and artwork is by Metastazis.
