Our album of the week (17th February 2012)
"Sylvester Anfang II and the artists surrounding the Kraak label in Belgium are a beacon of free-form, experimental hope, and ever since their releases for our good friends at Aurora Borealis, we here at Southern knew they were a band that embodied the Latitudes ethos and would make a welcome addition to the series. The five tracks presented here were extracted from a three-hour long jam session that saw the band setting up in Southern's studios with no preconceived plans to see what would materialise from their wigged-out psychedelic improvisation. The freedom that a day in the studio provided meant that they could explore the deepest recesses of the band's sound, and t h e r e s u l t i s t h i r t y - f ive minu t e s of kaleidoscopic noise, droning mantras and freak-folk joy that sweeps you off your feet and leaves you hovering in the ether. Recorded during a rare trip to the UK in November 2010, this is a small snapshot of the Sylvester Anfang II live experience and a document that demonstrates the bands boundless creativity and dedication to their craft. The Latitudes series was in part started with the spirit of experimentation firmly at its core and these Flemish purveyors of psycheheaven have captured that brilliantly." - Freddy Palmer File Under: Freak-folk, psych-folk For Fans of: Ignatz, Popol Vuh, German Oak, Parsson Sound.
