We’ve got two records in from the reliable Woodsist imprint this week. One’s a taut bit of power-pop from The Woolen Men and the other is this languid honk on the cosmic hippie psych lifepipe that is Herbcraft. It’s got six lengthy ritualistic synth-heavy psych jams which drift gently and consistently with droning synth melodies and repetitive, often Eastern-influenced rhythms.
The album’s 12-minute centrepiece ‘A Knock at the Door in Your Mind’ opens with slow chuntering, dusky jamming underpinned by synth drones and tribal rhythms like Popol Vuh crossed with Sylvester Anfang or Follakzoid before building into a churning, blown-out psych-kraut jam like Cave jamming on The Heads’ gear. Another highlight is ‘No Land’ on the flip, which mixes in new age flute and vocals which remind me of gospel laments of old America for a woozy blissed out dub spiritual that’s equal parts Sun Araw and Hype Williams. I’m enjoying this album a lot but I wish I had a bong to go with it. Liking the fact that one of the band members calls herself Dawn Aquarius too.
