Artist: 
Aquaserge
Label: 
CRAMMED DISCS

Aquaserge plays Zeuhl-influenced music. Zeuhl is a combination of Jazz and Progressive Rock, invented by French-Prog band Magma in the 1970s and sung in a made up language called Kobaïan. It's pretty much the most niche genre to ever exist (wikipedia lists 8 other Zeuhl bands total) but it's also very memorable. I can't find anything online to back up my assertion, but they have to be a little influenced by it.

Fifty years ago, the Grateful Dead released their eponymous debut album, and tens of thousands of hippies converged on the Haight-Asbury neighborhood in San Francisco for what would become known as the Summer of Love. The United States was embroiled in the Vietnam War and one of the biggest riots in history over the course of five days in Detroit. I have been thinking a lot about the role of music and festivals in our current society, and the role of music in escapism.
