This is tripping my face right off. The first sold-out volume of Big Ron from Sunburned Hand of the Man's psych jam excursions with Danish spacefacers Causa Sui caused much celebration in this sweaty hole of an office and now part two is here to shave the top of your head off and spit acid-fried ricocheting wah-wah madness right into the slimy lining of your brain case. It's a dense stew of astronomic riff-action, duelling guitars firing off into hyper-space, whip-tight tumbling drums and ever-evolving bass lines finding multiple ways of enhancing the brilliantly loose and exciting grooves. Compared to some of the recent space rock and psychedelic improv we've had in, this 23-plus minute track 'The Garden of Forking Paths' is completely relentless, frighteningly deep and well mesmerising stuff, balancing both incredibly professional focus and unhinged free-rock abandon perfectly to form a real cosmic cerebral treat. 'Gelassenheit', one of two tracks on the flip takes a more Krautrock inspired route, sounding very much like Can at their most jam-locked demented; the initially steady metronomic drumwork locks the band into a thrilling psychotropic frug that just gets wilder and wilder and will totally own your poor battered mind by its conclusion. I really like bands such as White Hills but, truth be told, only Cave get anywhere near this intense on record for me. That Can/Hawkwind thing they have going on...you can't escape the astral madness here either! The finale, 'Brassica Blues', is a much more meandering, laid-back number that is nevertheless drenched in atmosphere and druggy sensuality. One of the best modern psych records I've heard in recent times. I hope you have a lot of incense and strong greenery at home because you'll bloody need it to cope with this monster platter...
