Origin: Germany

Despite the subtitle, don’t do the maths and think Vibravoid are celebrating early. 2001 was Düsseldorf-based outfit’s Y2K debut album, actually recorded over the final three years of the 90s, and its commemoration has arrived, in Germanic tradition, right on schedule. And a monster of a presentation it is too: available as a 4LP deluxe box set, limited to 750 pressings, or a 2CD stuffed with demos and live recordings. 

They’ve been prolific since then, each Vibravoid release being its own little capsule of psychedelic goodness built around a whole package in which each component – the music, the visuals, the artwork – complements the rest. Their records have become very collectable, even before we factor in the effect of their appearing on sought-after boutique labels such as Fruits de Mer. 

The main thing is: 2001 has a simplicity that is, simply, very good. It’s a suite of songs and instrumentals that fair bubbles away, with analogue sounds swooshing in and streaming out again while sitars and Mellotron describe the swirls and drifts of the record’s moods. It’s the convergence of timelines where 60s and 70s psychedelia merge into the contemporary, and it’s just all one delightfully rewarding trip. - Ian Abrahams (Record Collector Mag July 2015 Issue #442)
