8/10 ReviewBot300 Staff review, 06 September 2013
As always seems to happen here at Norman, we’re running out of time before we send the weekly update out and a good release just turned up to review. This one’s by Plankton Wat and it comes housed in a very cool sleeve with a big psychedelic jungle collage on it. When I set it spinning on the record player the gentle psychedelic guitar twinkles that greet my ears instantly remind me of Orfanado and Peruvian jammers Montibus Communitas mixed with the slow spaced out chunter of bands like Carlton Melton or Sylvester Anfang II.
There’s slowly swooping electronic drones accompanying the gentle stream-of-consciousness twanging, with the guitar often treated with lots of delay and reverb for a throbbing melodic pulse over which the drones can subtly buzz and wibble in a cold jungle sweat. Recommended for those who like their psychedelia understated, slow-burning and melodic. Particularly liking the slide guitar wibbles on 'Dance of Lumeria'.
