Veering between krautrock edginess and bittersweet pop melancholia, droning medicated tones and noise driven no wave fuzz, The Oscillation recalls the kosmische musik of Neu! and Tangerine Dream interpreted with an eye on Pil’s dubbed out punk funk, Miles Davis’ experimentalism and Spacemen 3’s strung out blues rock.

Beginning in 2008 as the solo project of Demian Castellanos, when DC Recordings released the debut “Out Of Phase”, The Oscillation quickly expanded into a formidable live force. The enlarged ensemble has featured numerous different musicians plus the live visual manipulations of film maker Julian Hand. Now, almost eight years and several hundred live shows later, the band return with two new albums in 2018, that veer between kosmische drone-scape and powerful psych-tinged rock n roll.

“This really shouldn’t work, but its fantastic…” The Guardian.
“In a related story my cat just became a mother of five.” Lowdown.
“A shimmering, shoe gazing, underground classic” DJ Magazine
