Lotus Pedal – “Secret Space Machine” single

“Secret Space Machine” is the main track these guys are pushing. The song twists the typical alien abduction motif to tell the tale of a sexy space babe absconding with an earth man for carnal purposes. It’s also the most overtly “space rock” sounding tune on here, with synthesizer noodling providing the Hawkwind-esque atmosphere. “Karma Soldiers” reminds me a bit of Farflung, but with more of a pop sensibility. “Ultrasonic” is an up-tempo rocker with a bit of a NWOBHM feel to it. “Space Child” closes things out by straddling the line between space rock and straight forward metal. Lotus Pedal wisely varies the tempo and intensity from song to song while maintaining a distinctive identity. They also avoid the tendency of similar bands to go off on lengthy jams, preferring a more song based approach with an emphasis on the vocals. (Bob Ignizio)
