Yikez! A new Magic Lantern thing that's limited to 300 copies.. These are going to go in about three minutes, aren't they. It's a split with Hop Frog Kollectiv (me neither) who go first; and whose side I probably prefer to be bloody honest with you. It's a long droney bit called 'Somba' that sounds like it's being played in some sort of wacky Indian scale with a wheezing accordion lolling about in the background with accompaniment fading in and out from bleeping morse code sounds, a wonky banjo thing, little prods of feedback and what sounds to me like a windchime.. It doesn't sound like much but it's fucking super. Proper atmospheric wares for poking at your imagination. The Magic Lantern track's good too, nicely continuing the other side's feel but moulding it into a rocky form. It's far more mellow than their other stuff, at times sounding a little like the laid-back opium den repetition Six Organs of Admittance often do so well, but it's equally as easy to get sucked into this as it is their blaring avant-psych. The crackers sleeve can only really help you in your zoning-out quest. Lethal weaponz on Urck!
