Title: Heaven
Format: CDR
Label: Arica Institute
Country: USA
Price: $12.00
"All time godhead monster alert, people! While the Ya Ho Wha 13 tribes psychedelic freakouts and its associated mythos have been much lauded and roundly investigated in hipster quarters over the last several years, there has been a complete absence of discussion about a similar and yet far more advanced spiritual/musical tribe by the name of Arica. Unlike Father Yods teachings though, which were largely limited to those in his tribe, *this* groups philosophy would go on to shape the entire thrust of Alejandro Jodorowskys The Holy Mountain, merely THE greatest motion picture in cinema history. All principal actors appearing in the film were required to undertake a rigorous weeks long preparation in Arica training before filming began. Now add to all of the above this salient detail: despite its American origin, sonically, this is on par with the absolute best krautrock ever recorded! How bout a combination of Dzyan-Electric Silence, Deuter-D, Limbus 4 and the most ethnically tripped passages of Wolfgang Dauners Et Cetera? Does that work for all you heads out there? Side A in particular is getting about as deep "in the pudding" as Ive ever heard any psychonauts venture. Truly...I dont think the vibes coming off this thing could be any heavier unless the sleeve itself had been dipped in a psilocybin bath. Its supernaturally heightened atmosphere is so potently keyed into the cosmos its almost painfully poignant to confront in this age of reduced expectations. I for one am humbled in its presence." - vdosound, mutant-sounds.blogspot.com.

Title: Music In The Nine Rings
Format: LP
Label: Poodle
Country: USA
Price: $28.00
Recorded in NYC in 1972 and remastered from tape transfer. Silkscreened tip-on jackets. "Arica was the music branch of the Arica Institute, whose founder famously collaborated with Alejandro Jodorowsky and convinced him to indoctrinate his entire crew in the Institutes cultish new age teachings before filming The Holy Mountain. Piano, synth, hypnotic percussion and plenty of tape delay - Music in the Nine Rings is an immersive psychedelic new age masterpiece - think Agitation Free, Limbus 4, Deuter-D. This recording almost certainly includes some of the same uncredited musicians that played on Woo Soo/Audition in 1972 and Heaven in 1973, so its no surprise theres a jazz sensibility in the overall structure and the playing. This record is eminently listenable but its unhurried improvisation has more to do with a subtle manipulation of musical tension than the relaxation promises of 80s new age. As the history of new age music is slowly created by people that werent there, Music in the Nine Rings will be a celebrated example of when the genre coalesced and a way of thinking musically showed its potential." - Poodle.
