Chill on the Sun released the album Breviary of magical plants and mushrooms

Written by on May 6, 2024

The Slovak band Chill On The Sun apparently plans their album releases according to the sun’s activity. Their new album Breviary of Magical Plants and Mushrooms is their 4th studio album and comes 11 long years after its predecessor Polo My, which was released on the summer solstice in 2012. The new album will be released on the day of the autumnal equinox, 23rd of September 2023. This date marks the astronomical end of summer and also corresponds with the final track End of Summer, a 9 minute epic in the best tradition of post-rock music.

The band’s origins date back to 2002 when they released their debut album U babky (At the Grandma), which spawned the radio hits Včelár (The Beekeeper) and Vzducholoď (Air Ship). Their music has matured over the years and has evolved from alternative pop through rock and world-music to its current art form.

It took more than 3 years to record album Breviary of Magical Plants and Mushrooms.

It is a stunning showcase of different styles, from ambient, almost Floyd-esque soundscapes to folk rock songs with a touch of retro hippie vibe and futuristic prog-rock compositions with a psychedelic world-music vibe. The concept of the album is like an enchanting audio book for adults who are looking for the forgotten magic of childhood conveyed by the magic of summer and holidays, or fanciful trips to nature and to the distant universe. The charm of the album is underlined by the beautifully crafted CD sleeve & cover, which will delight any CD collector.

On the album, the band collaborated with several sought-after musicians, such as: blues guitarists René Lacko and Roman Mečiar, folk songwriter “Nany” Hudák, cellist Matej Tkáč, ethno-instrumentalist Rami Shaafi and others. The spectacular sound mastering was done by Gargle & Expel from Prague (Czech republic).
