Astral Planes Drifter (S.O.S.) – Last ParadigmPosted: March 25, 2015
The completely enveloping, disembodied psychedelic musique concrete of the Astral Planes Drifter is somewhat reminiscent of 2012’s Spirit Quest cassette by Crystal Palace, except with a much softer, meditative twist, eschewing the random bursts of noise and radical cut-ups in favor of a rich, trippy tapestry of samples and dialogue paired with echoing psych folk workouts and New Weird America hauntology. Sci-fi film dialogues, noodly melodies floating in the aether which blend into one amorphous blob of sound over the course of its exhaustive 90 minutes. Recommended!
