Founded 2008 in Heidelberg, Germany, the searing strings, swirling Hammond organ and pounding drums of Buddha Sentenza condensed rapidly to form a nebulous cloud of loosely jammed, spaced-out, rocking riffs. After releasing the demo "mode0909" in 2009 and their debut South Western Lower Valley Rock in 2013, Buddha Sentenza returns 2016 with their third longplayer Semaphora. Once again, the quintet honors their sonic heritage by comprising sounds from multiple corners of the rock spectrum, resulting in a perfect, modernized match of psychedelic, stoner and jam music.
