Their second full­length LPAs Above, So Below (2016)firmly established Stonefield as one of the key players in the current wave of Australian psych­rock, but Far From Earth sees the band's sound enter a whole new spectrum. WithBlack Mountain's Stephen McBeanat the production helm, first single and album opener'Delusion' demonstrates a shift from the hardenedpsych popof earlier records toward more prog and heavy metal. The title track'Far From Earth' extrapolates on this, as a bass drum pulses between blurry synth lines and circular guitar riffs.'In The Eve' reveals a silkier side to drummer/singer Amy's trademark vocals before launching into a driving and unabashedly hooky chorus. 'Visions' enters with a stridingdancefloor­esquerhythm section, the lyrics exposing the album's overarching theme of making sense of yourself in your own mind as well as in the universe/multiverse. 'Together' is a tender moment ­"Time goes slowly, moves so gently, when we are as one...lover, lover"­ which morphs into a Ravi Shankar­era Beatles sound on 'Broken Stone'. Tenderness is fleeting, however, as 'Through The Storm' propels the listener right backin toSabbath territory and 'In My Head' continues the dark, sludgy journey. 'Sleepyhead' is aproggylullaby, with the instrumental closer 'Celestial Spaces' making it damn hard for listeners to come down from this trip through the Stonefield stratosphere.
