This is basically an advancement of the esthetic behind that whole LOW MUSIC movement. In fact, there has always been bands, that worked with this musical ideology. I'm talking about very low, tribal drumming, lots of drones, slide guitar, deep bass playing, and whispery, freaked out lyrics that function not unlike druidic chants at a festival in honor of Morpheus. At times, with the two female soul singers behind him, you might think you were listening to the early NIGHT TRIPPER albums that Dr. John recorded when he was still fun. Then, you hear the slide guitar, and you are reminded of STICKY FINGERS era stones, with Mick Taylor's slide work, played over the low, thunderous drum and bass attack of Bill and Charlie. Or even the slide guitar of Duane Allman, when the Allman brothers still were playing some deep southern soul, and jazz, before their double tragedy. Next thing you know, you are hearing influences from to LOW to MORPHINE (the band after they got the keyboard player, and began to study those subsonic notes that blew my woofers!) Just to keep it earthy, there's even a layer of shamanistic tribal, Indian drumming on a lot of the cuts. obviously, a lot of different influences are converging here, and making that kind of fusion work, is a tricky business. The danger is that the band could end up either copying their formula for this unique sound, or reducing the fusion of influences, to make for a clearer, more mass appealing product. Hopefully, they will stay sincere, and bands this underground usually DO stay loyal to their philosopies. In any case, this band sounds as if they are at the top of their game artistically, and they know their game quite while. So, if you are after a nice, SLOW AND LOW sound, with a jazzy liquid swirl of molasses sweet weed haze and codiene cough syrup abysses, then this is for you. It's not that you need to be on that kind of alchemical fusion of drugs to get this album. The album's artistic drive appears to imitate that earthquake low chant/drone sound, bound with a "FESTIVAL IN HONOR OF MORPHEUS" vibe. Just relax and go with it. Approximately 78% of those who listen to this album just 2 or 3 times, become hopelessly addicted to the album. I know I hear it almost every day myself, but I can stop anytime. Before you know it, you'll be turning on your friends to the band. You might even be able to recall correctly the bands groovatious psychedelic name without reading the CD cover. If you need a supply of this album, here's the place to score it. Keep it cool, dude.
