    Maneesh de Moor - Icaro

    Maneesh de Moor - Icaro

    Maneesh de Moor
    Icaro
    Label: Pachamama Records

    An Icaro (or sonic pattern) is a melody traditionally received by a shaman journeying in the spirit world. The Icaros contained here are contemporary interpretations of Icaros derived from Shipibo tradition, and altered to be played on special flutes, made of Tobacco branch and ancient wood. The recordings are nested amid original field recordings of the Amazon jungle by night and are highlighted by instruments like the ‘Chakapa’, an instrument made of leaves from the ancient Chakapa bush, which provides a very trance-like groove mated to the heart beating rhythms of a shaman’s drum. Superbly done!

    Only Child Tyrant - Time to Run

    Only Child Tyrant - Time to Run

    Only Child Tyrant
    Time to Run
    Label: Nomark

    Brash and abrupt, throbbingly angular and obtrusive; found inside of indie, surf and slide, as well as doom and electronic. In what strange world could all of these exist? One that is an alias for mega producer Amon Tobin! Needing an outlet for material that didn’t fit into his other bodies of work Only Child Tyrant was born. These 8 tracks take you in mysterious ways to places you never knew you could get to. Whether bleeping or grinding this will have you wandering but finding.

    Gold & Silver Sessions
    Label: Blues Funeral Records

    Immaculately constructed instrumental progressive psychedelic doom rock that utilizes these multiple influences to paint sonic pictures of unmatched beauty, complexity and prowess. Adding to their past couple highly acclaimed releases, this one sets the sail for even more amazing adventures in music.

    Label: Nuclear Blast

    Delightfully delicious, dynamic and intense musical drama from Sweden’s one and only Opeth! Their 13th release is a double, offering these 10 engaging and enrapturing progressive rock and metal compositions sung first and foremost in Swedish, but then also including with English accompaniment. Every listen unveils new layers of breathtaking delicacy, interesting interludes and amazing musicianship. Bravo!

    Live at Ozra 2019
    Label: Twisted Records Ltd

    If you were wondering if the name meant this was the phenomenal fusion of two visionary musical talents, SHPONGLE (Simon Posford) & EAT STATIC (Merv Pepler), you would be correct! Cross pollinating their globally appealing psychedelic electronic music is certainly a treat and if you were lucky enough to attend this legendary Psychedelic Trance festival in Ozra, Hungary you could have seen it take place in front of your eyes. For the rest of us though, this landmark release will tell the tale of their combined sonic wizardry.
