Artist: THUJA
Title: Pine Cone Temples
Format: Double CD
Label: Strange Attractors Audio House
Country: USA
Price: $17.50
"Much has been said about The Jewelled Antler Collective, the fertile womb from which Thuja emits its primordial ooze, and of Thuja itself.  A loose-knit assembly of like-minded sound ecologists who study the connections between their immediate environment and the music created by its players, Jewelled Antler claims a multitude of music makers in its orbit - Blithe Sons, Skygreen Leopards, Franciscan Hobbies being just a  mere cross-section.  Thuja, however, remains one of the earliest and best-known incarnations.  Steven R. Smith, Glenn Donaldson, Loren Chase, and Rob Reger coalesce interests in field recordings, found sound, experimentalism, folk and psychedelic rock  (among others) to weave seriously detailed and immense journeys into pure sound. By incorporating real-time recordings of natural sounds from their particular surroundings, the four members of Thuja play off each other and the space they inhabit with impeccable instinct, succeeding in creating eerie yet strikingly melodic compositions. The end result is a total immersion of the senses, for both the player and the listener. Across the grand expanse of Pine Cone Temples two discs, implements such as piano, guitars, percussion, and well-placed contact mics are blended like pigments to conjure the subtlest of sonics, pulling every lost drop of their immediate universe into floating and  buzzing cinematics. Minimalist hues are brush-stroked into being and slowly unfurl into the atmosphere.  Improvised clouds of sound softly erupt to form compositions of such immense and precise detail, it would seem the music was written out  rather than spontaneously developed.  Such is the magic of Thuja and their uncanny ability to sculpt microscopic  psychedelia from their immediate environment and collective consciousness."

Artist: VOCOKESH
Title: The Tenth Corner
Format: CD
Label: Strange Attractors Audio House
Country: USA
Price: $13.50
"Vocokesh seriously tweak the standard rock trio infrastructure by processing the guitars beyond earthly recognition and inoculating the cacophony with an arsenal of vintage analog electronics. With seven songs totalling over an hour of music, The Tenth Corner explores some seriously alien terrain with an elusively mechanical, intensely lysergic sound. Unfurling like mellow smoke from some alien opium den, the title track introduces the sonic soiree in a pleasant mood, as distant acoustic plucking and electronic oscillations provide a pillowing backdrop for some elegant electric guitar flourishes. Imbued with an intense array of moods and textures, The Tenth Corner is a tremendously cinematic listening experience -- in fact, three tunes are envisioned as supplemental/alternate soundtracks to some particularly vivid cult films. Composition and improvisation coalesce into a sound that draws from the early flights of 70s German avant rock (Agitation Free, Cosmic Jokers, Ash Ra Tempel) and synth-powered cosmic (Cluster, Tangerine Dream, Popol Vuh) if it were created in the embryonic electronic music labs of the 60s and 70s. Transcendent, gritty, hallucinatory -- The Tenth Corner is undoubtedly Vocokeshs finest hour." - Strange Attractors Audio House.

Artist: VOCOKESH
Title: Through the Smoke
Format: CD
Label: Strange Attractors Audio House
Country: USA
Price: $13.00
"With Through the Smoke, Vocokesh expand upon the ominous acid soundtracks that saturated The Tenth Corner. Combining the swirling guitars of Pink Floyd and the Kraut-inspired mayhem of Ash Ra Tempel with the early analog electronic surrealism of Tangerine Dream and Popol Vuh, Vocokesh continue to place pressure on the boundaries of sound, incessantly exploring cryptic soundscapes via their oftentimes unsettling brand of electronics-drenched, drugged-out rock.  On this outing, however, the soundscapes come mixed with some more prog-like elements and even a touch of  psych/garage riffing. Vibe #6 stirs slowly with heady bass pulses, swooshing synths and subtle guitar lines, but quickly stumbles headlong into all-out mania as Franeckis guitar pyrotechnics spiral forth like alien tendrils, reverberations of a gong tolling the first wave of what is to be a long, dark trip.  But a sidestep into garage-psych of Vocokesh Theme Song provides a nice respite, as the band exhumes the spirit of Electric Prunes-like fuzz and vibrato. The sojourn is short-lived, as Vocokesh continue on, taking the listener on their impressionistic journey woven from total sound exploration. Vocokesh manage to skillfully hybridize the best of the early 70s avant-garde into their cinematic improvisations. Florian Fricke, David Gilmour, Manuel Göttsching, Edgar Froese, Moebius & Roedelius and Fripp & Eno are all exhumed, but Vocokesh re-image the references into something far more extreme than the aforementioned ever imagined.  Eerie and sonically provocative, Through the Smoke is one intense mind-moving hallucination." - Strange Attractors Audio House.

Artist: YONA, YAIR
Title: Remember
Format: LP
Label: Strange Attractors Audio House
Country: USA
Price: $21.00
"Israel isnt exactly known as a hotbed for acoustic steel-string guitar music, but Yair Yonas reissue of Remember is simply some of the most genre-bending music for solo steel-string guitar since Sandy Bull first opened the doors in the 60s. Its a celebration of the Takoma Records school, filtered by alternate tunings and syncopations, a John Fahey-esque compositional instinct across landscapes of banjo, electronics, resonators, bass guitar and strings. Limited edition of 300. Packaged in beautiful hand-numbered silkscreened jackets with digital download included for the digitally inclined." - Strange Attractors Audio House.
