Liftoff is the psychedelic collaboration of Steven Albert, Steve and Johnna Raskin, Rob Myers. Liftoff creates psychedelic soundscapes that move between various worlds. Liftoff takes flight on a blissed-out journey drenched in acid-soaked melodies and 808 beats. Escape into the void and join them on their infinite quest for endless summers and higher states. Liftoff invites you to sing along to their psychedelic campfire songs amidst strawberry fields and marshmeadows. Guitar/Singer/Songwriter Steven Albert (Fort Knox Five and Thunderball collaborator) leads the band with vocal pipes so tender and true they send one’s astral projection straight to the year the music died. Coupled with the haunting harmonies of Johnna Raskin (aka Miss Johnna M of Thunderball and Speedy Consuela) you’d swear they were a brother/sister act, if not even Mamas and Papas! But that’s just the icing. The cake is layer upon layer of textures, lo-fi samples, drum loops, acoustic instruments & sound effects, played, produced and mixed by the inimitable Steve Raskin (of Fort Knox Five and Thunderball) who for this album seems to have been working on a higher plane. Throw in Rob Myers (Fort Knox Five, Thievery Corporation, Thunderball, See-I and International Velvet) for a little mood filtering, string strumming and the obligatory Sitar riff and you have a recipe for one heady trip.
