Isis Aquarium – Molten Sulfur

If you’re a sucker for droning, reverbed shamanic ruminations that often employ synthesizers and field recordings (and following Weed Temple, it’s pretty much a sure thing), then this cassette by the Melbourne based Popol Vuh worshipper Isis Aquarium will be the Manna from heaven for you. Issued on the fresh yet already very interesting (and promising!) Australian label Habitat Tapes, it is a joyous almanac of the visionary present, as told through analog circuitry with Germanic precision. If you don’t buy this, check out the label’s blurb: “a nebulous acoustic terrain that shifts from jungle fog to desert plain.” It’s like old-skool National Geographic magazine without any old NatGeo collages on the cover. Recommended!
