- Reach The Endless Sea by Tunes Of Negation
Shapednoise’s Cosmo Rhythmatic label strikes pure gold again with an incredibly unique album from Tunes Of Negation aka Shackleton in another of his unlikely collaborations featuring striking vocals from Heather Leigh alongside percussionist Takumi Motokawa, and mallet player Raphael Meinhart. Zeke Clough’s artwork and Shackleton’s music have worked together in perfect harmony since the Skull Disco days, and here he provides his distinctive, eye-popping artwork to assist us on our journey.
And what a transcendent, psychedelic blast it is, as they take us by the hand as we leave the planet and head into worlds beyond. Imagine an army of cyborg Burundi drummers performing some sort of Fourth World Congotronics Shangaan Electro hybrid accompanied by an ancient mystical goddess inhabited by the spirit of Kate Bush all aboard a spacecraft with its controls set for the heart of the sun. And that’s just the first tune ‘The World Is A Stage Reach The Endless Sea’. On ‘Tundra Erotic’ our vessel has transformed into a towering pipe organ and one of the alien passengers has fallen and hit the preset button labelled “Cosmic Space Vampire/ Acid Transylvania”. We blissfully hurtle into infinity, lost in space on ‘Nowhere Ending Sky’ before landing on planet Free Jazz Kosmische Raga on ‘Ruckschlag Rising then Resonant’ where we briefly recline for a spliff with The Oracle before venturing deep into the landscape and meet the ghosts of a lost ancient civilization on ‘The Time Has Come’.
A 100% certified mind-blower *guaranteed* and if I’m wrong, you can come round to my house and kick my face off before my children.
