New shirts available from our own label El Paraiso Records webstore. Only available thru mailorder + live shows. "What shows? You never play anywhere!"

If you can't make it we got a remedy for that also: in April we'll release our first ever live record Live at Freak Valley on 2 LP / 2 CD from that special show in a damp valley in Germany last year.
"There's so much to like about the release. For starters, the music, regardless of whether post-editing was done or not, sounds live—and brilliantly live at that, especially when Euporie Tide captures the unit in full flight operating at the peak of its ability. The album's track sequencing works exceptionally well (...) Transitions between episodes are executed so seamlessly, the effect is stunning, and the listener comes away from the track, like the album in general, in awe. It's an incredible collection by an incredible band..."
Here's another track from the massive forthcoming Causa Sui album, entitled Euporie Tide. The album will be released on 2LP/CD/DL in early August on El Paraiso Records. It will be available for preorder soon. Until then: grab a cold one in the fridge and crank this shit UP!

It consists of jam-sessions with Ron Schneiderman from Sunburned Hand of the Man and the vinyl is limited to 500 copies. They are selling out fast so be quick to one up at the brand new El Paraiso webshop, where you will also find other Causa Sui releases/t-shirts and related projects at very reasonable prices.
Also, the long awaited collaboration with the finest improvisers from Chicago - members of Tortoise, Chicago Underground and more - has finally been released on CD and deluxe 2LP under the name: Chicago Odense Ensemble. Vinyl is limited to 250 copies. You can also get this at our own webshop.

The phat Summer Sessions 3LP box has also just been reprinted, so if you were too slow to pick one up in the first place here's the opportunity.
We appreciate the dedicated fans that take an interest in documenting Causa Sui live shows - so we would like to pass on some audience recordings in all their flawed and strange sounding glory.
Last weekend a group of bearded amateur filmmakers showed up at Ålborg to shoot some great looking footage - including two new songs

Finally the Summer Sessions LPs are back in print! 3x 180g deluxe vinyl in a thick single sleeve. Out on http://www.elektrohasch.de/ at an extreemly reasonable price (22 euro)
Chicago Odense Ensemble
The band consists of Jonas Munk and Jakob Skøtt (both of Causa Sui) as well as Jeff Parker (Tortoise), Matt Lux (Isotope 217, Iron & Wine), Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Isotope 217), Dan Bitney (Tortoise) and Brian Keigher.
Musically it's a continuation of some of the ideas on Summer Sessions. There's a heavy acid jazz-vibe going on here, that recalls Miles Davis circa Bitches Brew and Live Evil. There's also plenty of krautrock riffs and mellow jamming going on that should appeal to everyone who dug the Summer Sessions series. It will be out on super limited 2LP and CD, so make sure to make your preorder in good time. All prices include shipping and there's a special offer for both the LP and CD version for 30 euros (including shipping).
Finally we can present you with the three volumes of Summer Sessions in digital formats! We realize that the original LP versions were torn off the shelves, and that some of you've had to use desperate meassures to get a hold of the albums. Well, not any more.
Elektrohasch has printed a beautiful 8-panel digipack with all the original artwork on heavy sleeve cardboard. This 3 CD monster with all original artwork included is only 22 Euros!
Also, we're offering all three volumes as high quality downloads from your favorite mp3-supplier. Please note that these mp3s are taken from the original masters, unlike the crappy low quality vinyl-rips that have been flooding the web. Do yourself a favor if you like these and get certified mp3s - that way you know you're not missing out. We recommend a cool place like Emusic, where the albums are cheap - especially stuff like ours with long tracks. So now you have no excuse for not listening to the music in the best possible format.
A new release of all three volumes of Summer Sessions on vinyl will be available in 2010. But unlike the original limited releases, this is simply 3 LPs in a single sleeve without the original artwork.
First of all we apologize for the lack of activity since the release of Summer Sessions vol. 1 last year,
but now we will try and make up for it by delivering a healthy dose of mindbending stoner-kraut-psych-jazz freakouts in the form of two full length albums released simultaneously, just in time for summer!
Summer Sessions vol. 2 and 3 will be released on luxurious 180 gram vinyl, limited to 500 each, on Elektrohasch at the end of May.
Both albums feature the incredible Johan Riedenlow on sax, and electronics/keyboard mastermind Rasmus Rasmussen guests on Vol. 2.
Vol. 2 is based around long, far out, loosely structured pieces, with lots of free jamming and adventurous jazzy explorations, while Vol. 3 is more earthy and heavy, with some solid downtuned riffing and an emphasis on the melodic aspect of Causa Sui.
1. SUN PRAYER (1:06) 2. RIP TIDE (5:28) 3. THE OPEN ROAD (14:17) 4. CINECITTÁ (3:27)
B: 5. TROPIC OF CAPRICORN (23:01)
Summer Sessions vol. 3
1. EUGENIE (8:09) 2. RED VALLEY (9:50)
B: MANIFESTATIONS OF SUMMER (15:38) 3. LONESOME TRAVELER (3:28) 4. SANTA SANGRE (8:23) 5. VENICE BY THE SEA (3:47)
We are slowly preparing the release of a collaboration album with the great cornetist Rob Mazurek and members of Tortoise, Isotope 217 and others that was recorded in Chicago last year.
It's all mixed and ready to go into production, but details about the release are still uncertain, so check back soon for updates on this project.
During May we will be both recording and playing shows with Ron Schneiderman (Sunburned Hand of The Man) and Jørgen Teller under the name Pewt'r jjjjj. So far the dates look like this:
May 15: Musikcafeen, Århus May 23: Remisen, Vesterbro, København at Festival of Endless Gratitude
We're also happy to announce that we'll be playing at this years Burg Herzberg festival in Germany in July. More info:

Remember that Causa Sui Summer Sessions vol. 1 LP, limited to 500 handnumbered copies is now available
Finally some new Causa Sui material will be released! The new album, entitled "Summer Sessions vol. 1", will be released on vinyl only on Elektrohasch in August and is the first in a series of loose, experimental albums. The album consists of four long, instrumental pieces - one of them a 25 minute excursion - and sees Causa Sui break into new territories, experimenting with kraut-rock electronics and elements of proto-fusion jazz as well as the more familiar fuzz-guitar journeys and stoner riffs.
We really got exhausted after working on new material after Free Ride, not really getting anywhere with the songs, so last summer we decided to turn things around for a while. The result was a new working method which demanded immediate action from all involved parties and didn't set any limits for sound and style. Basically we recorded hours and hours of free jams and loosely structured songs, some of them very different in style and tone than the two first albums. Some of the pieces ended up sounding very unique and genrebending, others just plain boring. Now we have put the first collection together of what we consider some of the most interesting results from the sessions.
Four short excerpts from "Summer Sessions vol. 1" is now available for streaming in our Myspace-player.

We are going to rock the hell out of at Duna Jam in Sardinia in June.
Also new gig in Denmark in March - chek the flyer for info:
Okay, lots of exciting things going on with Causa Sui these days.
First of all, we have a new release out. It’s a very limited recording of our 100% improvised & instrumental concert in December 2006, which we played with guitarists Jørgen Teller & Ron Schneiderman of Sunburned Hand of the Man. The sound is way different than the 2 Causa Sui-albums, as everything was recorded live through a very basic setup, not capturing the individual instruments, but the whole sound of the jam in the room. The 2 hour concert were then spliced together in various ways, creating a sound that is both extremely lo-fi, but also very complex, to match the range of the players. There are manic psych-riffs that speeds up into infinity. Repeating kraut-grooves. Flutes & Chimes. Dark drones. It’s been described as Amon Düül II meets Kyuss. 70s Miles Davis producing a drunken Blue Cheer.
The CD-R is limited to 200 hand numbered copies, which are going fast already: Write the good people at There is no Trouble in Denmark
CAUSA SUI AS A TRIO
For various reasons Causa Sui is now a trio consisting of Jakob Skøtt, Jess Kahr and Jonas Munk. The way the two first albums were written and produced was beginning to prove itself unfruitful, and some kind of change was necessary to ascend to the next step of Causa Sui's sound. It has been matter of rediscovering the sheer unbounded joy of creating music together and the
ambition to go further artistically and develop as a band. All 4 of us was in agreement about it, so we played our last concert concert with Kasper right outside our rehearsalroom
last Friday - it was a great gig, out in the open, with a good vibe on
stage. The way it should be.
We have already recorded loads of new material as a trio during the last couple of months. We won’t say much about it yet, except that we’re really psyched about it. We play better and more freely than ever, and the songs are both drifting & gut-pounding.
We promise you no less than a complete assault on all your senses with a renewed energy and perspective.
Free Ride studio-report is up on Planet Roadburn. It's written by Jonas, and it's a hefty motherfucker! It covers pretty much everything, from experimental music to boozing on a beach - be sure to sit down while reading these pages, as they are likly to blow your mind...
What we set out to do with Causa Sui was to create a rock music that was heavy on the senses. A kind of rock that had the freedom, power and excitement of the early heavy rock of the late 1960s but with the depth and possibilites of more modern stylings. A kind of rock that hits hard and immediate, while still being able to surprise and seduce after repeated listens. Something that's easy to get into, but reveals a depth when one looks closer – a mix of the known and the unknown. From the beginning we have operated under the thesis, "what could have happened with heavy rock if it had followed a different path in the early seventies?" From the studio-report - check the overview-section on Planet Roadburn

of psych and stoner-rock. We really look foreward to this
gig in Tilburg, Netherlands, as Blue Cheer will play, amongst
other great bands. If you can't wait that long, we also
play on September 23rd at ZBZW in the same city. The Netherlands
We have begun recording for a new album. Everything sounds
great on the recordings, which is made with a lot of new
gear. Expect a massive sound. Included is our longest song
yet, New Born Road, clocking in at over 15 minutes. It has
all the elements that constitute Causa Sui, including a
headspinning instrumental passage, that were conjured up
through jamming straight for three days, 6 hours a day,
recording each take. The release of the album is hopefully
in the fall.

Bacause of various annoying reasons, we end up not playing
all dates as announced. But thanks to the great people of
Drive By Shooting (awesome 4/4 rock), cool japaneese psychers
Marble Sheep and the funny english punk dudes in Billy No
Mates, we got some extra gigs to fill in the cancelled ones.
BIG THANKS to these bands, as well as the incredible jamsters
in Colour Haze for saving the tour.
We blew out amps and smashed up drum heads and cymbals,
doing sets with a different vibe every night – on some occasions
jamming our songs into oblivion. Great venues, people and
vibe everywhere. We’ll be back on the road in the fall hopefully.
