From the meditative opener, “So The Darkness Shall Be The Light, And The Stillness Be The Dancing” to the rambling opium den epic of “Where The Flowers Blossom Red”, the album smoulders with Javanese go-go gamelan gongs, smoky Cambodian funk, wicked Celtic ragas, deep Saharan blues, simmering Sufi surf and spacedout Indian soul. A heady fusion for heady times (times like, say, 1972 or, possibly, 1912). RIYL: Six Organs of Admittance, Dengue Fever, Robbie Basho, Ry Cooder (if he took a lot of peyote or opium).

Rehearsals Vol 8

Jakob solo guitar / looper / drum machine improvisations. Trying to figure out how to translate the entire sound spectrum of the new album into a  live set. Also, using acoustic guitar now. Kind of raw. Droney raga type stuff and Erkin Koray inspired jamming type stuff. {click skully to download}
