Southeast of Saturn

Third Man Records has just announced a new compilation titled Southeast of Saturn that shines a light on the space-rock/shoegaze/dreampop scene that flourished in Detroit, Michigan in the ’90s. Artists from this period include Astrobrite, Auburn Lull, lovesliescrushing, and Windy & Carl.

Penned “Detroit Space-Rock”, the scene centered around Burnt Hair Records, Burnt Hair CEO Larry Hoffman’s Life According To Larry radio show, Zoot’s Coffeehouse and bands, such as Windy & Carl, Asha Vida, Füxa, Auburn Lull, and Majesty Crush. It was a modern movement of a more traditional “space-rock” sound, influenced less by The Stooges and MC5 and more by Spacemen 3, Loop, My Bloody Valentine and krautrock bands like Can and Neu!. Even the best-known artists on Southeast Of Saturn — Windy & Carl, Majesty Crush, Füxa — never achieved mainstream success, but within the rock underground, they inspired a cultish devotion that burns to this day.

Here’s the complete track listing:

  1. Majesty Crush — “No. 1 Fan”
  2. Spectacle — “She Doesn’t Believe”
  3. Thirsty Forest Animals — “Nape”
