Sarin Smoke is a duo comprising the humans better known to you as Pete “Yellow” Swanson and Tom “Charalambides” Carter, teaming up to create a collection of warm, expressive jams where they chunter, twinkle and drone around one another with seemingly effortless, instinctive grace.
Sometimes there’s a dense psychedelic swirl of hazy, flowing sheets of psychedelic guitar drone’n’shred free expression, shimmering, twiddling, clanking and droning their way ever higher into the cosmos with intuitive, fluid style; elsewhere more measured, twinkly guitar picking teases out melodies from gentle, easy interplay.
There’s a casual, smoky charm throughout, though, whether they’re soothing us with tender freak-folk or frying our synapses with burned out amp scree and stratospheric free-psych solo action, and you get the sense that the pair really enjoyed making this collaboration. It was always going to be a good match and you can tell they both relish the experience.
Also noteworthy is that all profits from this LP go to Tom Carter’s medical fund, since he’s still on the mend after a life-threatening bout of pneumonia suffered during a recent Charalambides tour. If you really want to help you might also be interested in the ‘Lunar Jams for Tom Carter’ double cassette.
