john dwyer has assembled a mighty cast of astral warriors to launch us away into a cosmos of wonderfully improvised, can-esque spectacles.

This large ensemble of players, led by the Oh Sees frontman, plays electrified and improvised jams in the realm of ECM ,‘70s hard fusion and prog-kraut. The record features many legions of players, including members of Sunwatchers, TV On The Radio, Flying Lotus, Feels, Prettiest Eyes, Mr Elevator, and many, many others. This is the first interstellar transmission from five days of electrified and improvised sessions, edited down to forty minutes of ear-jellifying delight. “This [chapter] is very much on the ECM / ’70s hard fusion / prog-kraut tip.” —John Dwyer. An accomplished and exhilarating galactic battering ram of an album, Bent Arcana might be the finest John Dwyer record for years and years8/10 – loud & quiet.

Benji says "“Put all these genuin legends in a room and this is what you get... You instantly know who’s on that guitar from that distinctive Dwyer tone.”
