ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE – ‘In Search Of The Lost Divine Arc’ 2LP/CD
Incredible new AMT full length referencing Led Zeppelin the way Son Of A Bitches Brew referenced Miles Davis. Expansive AMT jams but also very structured song writing. If you saw them on tour recently you definitely saw some of these songs live.
JOZEF VAN WISSEM – ‘Nihil Obstat’ CD/LP
Jozef Van Wissem’s most far reaching and accessible record yet is Nihil Obstat. Full of gorgeous, slowly unraveling melodies, this JVW furthers his reputation as a singular composer and performer.
TOTAL LIFE/DECEH LP
Split release from Kevin Doria (Growing) and Deceh who, for this record, are comprised of members of Eleh & Srines. Deceh’s composition is in 3 parts & we had some difficulty editing it down accurately for an excerpt so we simply cut up the track into three sections for the Mp3 sample online. Total Life’s side, however, is a slowly evolving heavy duty monster of a piece that foreshadows his upcoming full lengths for Imprec (yes, full lengths) in 2013/2014.
