In real terms it’s six songs of heavily percussive, ecstatic psychedelia reminiscent of Can and Zappa. Skittering drums and vocoders, conjuring ’50s sci-fi, collide with a melee of hi-hats, manipulated flutes, tearing metal and Gong-like mushroom-infused melodic meanderings produced with dizzying compression.
It ends on a high, a discordantly kosmische cover of Yes’s epic ‘Heart Of The Sunrise’, in a melancholy Syd Barrett style (listen below), ditching the divisive noodly prog and retaining the ethereally beautiful melody. A surprisingly cerebral triumph.
