Mojo & The Kitchen Brothers, a 5-headed omnium gatherum of eclectically inspired music freaks hailing from Belgium, is set to take music enthusiasts on a mind-bending journey with the vinyl release of their first EP »Flaming Tiger Lizard« (2022) and debut full-length album »Mojo’s Heavy Cream« (2023). These releases, made possible through their partnership with the Dutch record label Lay Bare Recordings, showcase the band’s unique blend of heavy prog rock soaked in psychedelia.
Drawing inspiration from the late 60s and early 70s, Mojo & The Kitchen Brothers sound exudes a captivating mix reminiscent of iconic bands such as Black Sabbath, Wishbone Ash, and Pink Floyd. However, their music is far more than a nostalgic trip; it is a captivating bridge between the past and the present, firmly rooted in the contemporary psych rock scene.
The band’s initial EP »Flaming Tiger Lizard« was released digitally just one year after their formation, and it vividly displayed the band’s creativity and open-minded approach to music. The titular track of the EP seamlessly fuses four different parts, taking listeners on a groovy, bass-heavy journey that morphs into funky desert blues, proggy and psychedelic jazz-rock interludes, and finally culminating in a sweet stoner jam. The dream-like continuity and psyched-out driving force make this 15-minute piece a multi-coloured journey through soundscapes.
