Album Review

Sparse psychedelia: Instrumental drone-jams based on slowish, atmospheric guitar (electric or acoustic) with some drums, keyboards, bells, and other effects. Mid/fast tempos overall with a meditative atmosphere, almost hypnotic on the longer pieces, and an Americana twang on the acoustic bits (Track 2 of either disk for example). Promo materials name-check Devendra Banhart, which seems appropriate. Nice one-chord stuff weaving a spacey, hazy mood. FCC clean.

1- Bells chiming, into a percussive segment and an almost raga-like guitar (dobro?) segment with hypnotic beat. Later, becomes a regular hoedown (mid/fast). (16:34)
2- Solo acoustic guitar, like a twangy slow flamenco. New-agey later on. (7:01)
3- Country/folk SONG, gentle male vocals. (2:54)
4- Minor-key guitar jam is driving but gentle; they're kind of rocking out (10:25)
5- A relaxing kind of psychedelic trip. Gentle one-chord drone, guitar twang, some accordion(?) and spacey effects. CHANGES chords after the 12th minute (!) when it gets into a pulsing effect with guitar soloing above it; then some thumpy drums come in for psychedelic drama. Some feedback and guitar grinding in spots throughout. Ends gently with acoustic guitar over electric buzz. (21:21)

6- First half mostly features a pulsing sound, first on organ then other keyboard, with guitar soloing atop -- first electric, than acoustic. Halfway through, a tribal drum beat comes in underneath acousting Fahey-like twanging. Opens with wandering flute. Around -11:30, winds down to a near pause, then bells, flute and jangly guitar form a spare screen as the drums pick up the beat again. (30:21)
7- Twangy acoustic pickin' over a light beat. Catchy. (11:19)
8- Banjo and mysterious bells, spare. Later, banjo over mid-energy drum rhythms. (11:53)
9- SONG! with gentle male vocals. Traditional folk, acoustic guitar. (3:46)
