The Heliocentrics' debut album, first issued by Now-Again in 2007, finally available to stream on Bandcamp.
The Heliocentrics’ albums are all confounding pieces of work. Drawing equally from the funk universe of James Brown, the disorienting asymmetry of Sun Ra, the cinematic scope of Ennio Morricone, the sublime fusion of David Axelrod, Pierre Henry’s turned-on musique concrète, and Can’s beat-heavy Krautrock, they have – regardless of the label on which they’ve released their music - pointed the way towards a brand new kind of psychedelia, one that could only come from a band of accomplished musicians who were also obsessive music fans.

Drummer Malcolm Catto and bassist Jake Ferguson are the Heliocentrics’ masterminds and producers, and they are obsessive weirdos in today’s musical climate, searching, progressive humans who are often out-of-time with current trends. They have been playing together for nearly two decades and their collective drive is to find an individual voice.

The Heliocentrics search for it in an alternate galaxy where the orbits of funk, jazz, psychedelic, electronic, avant-garde and “ethnic” music all revolve around “The One.” Their debut album, issued by Now-Again first in 2007, is the start of their epic vision of psychedelic funk, while exploring the possibilities created by their myriad influences – Latin, African, and more.

There's something about being a band unstuck in time that makes the question of aging and consistency almost beside the point. Out There, the debut Heliocentrics album from 2007, still sounds good…largely because it would've sounded good 40 years prior.
Pitchfork

"Retro is one thing the Heliocentrics are not. Out There may be the most appropriate description of their sound. Malcolm Catto achieves fills on his simple jazz kit that you could swear came from a drum machine, and the grooves are so tight that it’s surprising that a band, not a computer, could stay in the pocket so long. Out There is an astral jazz trip worth taking."
- Jazz Times

"The loose nature of their unfettered journeys evoke European collectives like Can and Träd, Gräs och Stenar as much as space travelers like Funkadelic and Sun Ra"
- NPR

The Heliocentrics are an English, London-based musical collective, combining funk, jazz, psych and library influences based around drummer and producer Malcolm Catto, Bassist Jake Ferguson, Guitarist Adrian Owusu and multi-instrumentalist Jack Yglesias.
