"Fully mind-blowing dream collaboration from Alastair Galbraith, Alex Neilson & Richard Youngs. All serious international underground sound weavers in their own right, this trio collaboration lifts things ever higher... for the last 20 years or so Alastair Galbraith has quietly been releasing some of the most stunning outsider/psych/folk/drone work to ever come out of his New Zealand homeland, and we couldn't be more thrilled to have him back on the scene. Richard Youngs makes a nice UK parallel with a vast and equally impressive catalog of sub-underground avant/drone/folk wonderment to his name. And while Alex Neilson's name might be a bit new, he's been bending many a mind under his directing hand solo guise, as well as collaboration with MV & EE, Taurpis Tula and others. Oh yeah, and that small fact that Alex & Richard backed Jandek at his first ever live performance is pretty cool too... musically, things are way fucking deep in the zone here folks. Side one glides along in slo-mo dream state, hovering with Richard's beautiful and unmistakable vocals soaring and refracting into echoes, quietly fluttering and droning electronics, otherworldly sounding synth melodies, rolling splashes of free percussion, backwards effects, and syrupy sound pools of acoustic strings. Beautifully lulling and deeply psychedelic... but the second you flip the LP, the bottom drops right out with a real electro jammer, blasted with throbbingly heavy free drumming, vibrating walls of synth, and yowling bird-of-prey electronic squeal... and things just get more abstract from there... really amazing stuff for those who dig a headspinningly deep listen... packaged in a stark but beautiful full color offset printed & debossed heavy art board cover, with debossed insert. 180 gram virgin vinyl. Numbered edition of 900 copies."
