Ambitious double-album by cassette heavyweight champions No Mind Meditation. It’s taken me a lot of time to wrap my head around this thing—mostly I’ve been asking and re-asking myself: is there such a thing as a perfect album? If so, this would be a candidate for sure (and a double album at that…)|
While reminiscent of their debut Face Skull Spirit, Molecular Clock ramps everything up to unforeseen levels of grandeur: bigger crescendos, more radical departures from the familiar textures in music. Inspirational more than anything. FCC CLEAN

(Tracks 1 and 2 are on the first disk, 3 and 4 are on the second)
1. (27:08) Captivating, entrancing. Bold and bright. NASA videos that used to make you believe anything was possible.
2. (26:55) Mesmerizing abstract soundscapes. Although there’s a lot of knob twiddling there’s some fine foundation tracking as well. Also has some nice blurry bits of spoken word.
3. (24:58) Deep. Spastic with quick unexpected changes in tone and tempo. Probably the most experimental of the lot.
4. (26:33) Bold and triumphant conclusion. Ringing and lasting. Stays with you for a while.
