Montibus Communitas – Montibus CommunitasPosted: February 15, 2014
Reissue on an original vinyl release on Cosmic Eye Records, this self-titled cassette by the Peruvian psych-folk/improv collective Montibus Communitas changes direction a bit from the usual Inner Islands stuff. While we’re still exploring the inner self here, this exploration sounds a bit more chaotic, anarchic and directionless (in a good way) than most Inner Islands releases. The cassette containts four lengthy, slowly unfolding tracks filled with dissonant drones, echoing guitar licks, tribal drumming and overall organ bliss. Kinda like the more ambiental Ash Ra Tempel stuff meeting No Neck Blues Band or Datashock at their most freewheeling. Recommended!
