Ananda Mida is a stoner and psychedelic rock music collective led by Max Ear (OJM’s drummer and Go Down Records’ Art Director) and Matteo Pablo Scolaro. From the very beginning of the project, graphic imagery has been given a crucial role thanks to the precious collaboration with the visual artist Eeviac. Since 2015, they have been performing with different lineups, from three to six members, either instrumental or featuring singers.
Their sound is inspired by seventies rock, mixed with desert and psychedelic grooves.

In 2015, they debuted with the double A-sided 7-inch Aktavas/Passavas, which gave rise to the band’s mythology, elaborated from some fragments of enigmatic teachings. In Fall 2016 they released their first full-length, co-produced by Go Down Records and Vincebus Eruptum Recordings. Anodnatius is its name and it reminds us of all the positive forces and slight vibrations settled inside and outside everything and everyone. In January 2019, the second chapter Cathodnatius was published, depicting all the opposing forces and obscure vibes we live in today. This record featured Conny Ochs on vocals, and dropped via Go Down and Vincebus Eruptum on vinyl, CD, and digital. In June 2021, the band put out the live EP called Karnak on a deluxe picture-back disc, featuring a special appearance by Desert Rock icon Mario Lalli on guitar. November 2023 has seen the release of their third work Reconciler, which has “mythologically” completed the trilogy. The album evokes the resolution of the contrast between those opposing forces, sung in the previous chapters. As the title states, it’s a hymn to reconciliation and drops via Go Down Records on double LP, double CD, and digital.
Next release is scheduled for July 2024, out for the mighty Heavy Psych Sounds Records, by publishing their live exhibition at last Duna Jam.

Ananda Mida performed throughout Europe, supporting bands like BRMC, Black Mountain, Colour Haze, Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man, The Atomic Bitchwax, Nebula, and White Hills.
