- Black Flowers Of The Forest In The Cosmos by Suishou No Fune & Numinous Eye
1 review. Write a review for us »
‘Black Flowers...’ is the collaboration between two artists of the highest experimental caliber, with the slow thunderous rhythm section of Numinous Eye and the psychedelic madness of Suishou No Fune, this is pretty heavy stuff man, limited to 170 CD’s with individually hand painted sleeves and collaged with beautifully delicate filigree twigs, the music is a psychedelic dream of slow pondering drums and paranoid guitar noise, Pirako Kurenai throws in a distant harmonica and wailing vocal screams that create a certain darkness to the album.
Opener ‘We Are Looking For Space Mushrooms’ is a hypnotic space rock jam akin to Acid Mothers Temple or Syd Barrett era Pink Floyd with a lolloping bass line that drives this beast to a fitting crescendo, ‘Space Bubbles’ is a bad trip to a sci-fi nightmare with only the sound of the distant harmonica to keep you safely grounded to earth. Back on terra firma and the closing track ‘Space Cruising’ sees these guys blasting out another acid-rock jam with some monstrous drumming from Mike Shoun, ‘Black Flowers..’ is an improvisational style in a more rock setting and the key word here is definitely psychedelic.
