Belgium’s progressive post-rockers Hippotraktor released their debut record Meridian last year via Pelagic Records, and today we’re stoked to bring you a full set in the form of their Trix Studio Session! The album is inspired by Max Müller’s evolutionary theory of naturism, and tells the story of a person alone in the natural world and deifying the plants, animals, and elements they encounter. At a time when human beings continue to fuck ourselves over by thinking we can do better than Nature herself, remembering that we once understood the power of our surroundings is paramount. Check out their Trix Studio Session below and make sure to listen to Meridian here!
After Belgium went back into another lockdown in November 2021, the band decided to dig into the Trix studio (Antwerp) to record a live session. This session features some of the band’s personal favorite tracks to play, describing the grandure of the mountains, the wind and the inner turmoil that the protagonist encounters in his journey through ‘MERIDIAN’.
