chris forsyth & koen holtkamp
one half of mountains & the former peeesseye guitarist bind ecstatic electronics & jubilant electric guitar cycles.
these 2 beautiful, but chaotic, side-long meditations bring spring a little closer. extended, kraut-influenced space-psych that maintains an optimistic vibrancy despite the density that whirls ever larger around you, like a many-coloured storm of smooth analogue pulsations & crunching guitar lines growing & approaching. flipping the usual (& overdone) ‘ominous’ vibes, this revelatory listen will appeal to fans of holtkamp’s main gig & shares territory with the ubiquitous emeralds. pressed on heavyweight black virgin vinyl in an edition of 400.
