“14 Tracks: Cyan Psych Syzygy”

Casting the net far and wide, we spy 14 exotic cyan psychedelics touring everything from avant-blues to post punk obscurities, via pacific coasters, Korean classical and dub prayers. While far flung, we can hear a celestial thread, a mystic syzygy of sorts, tying together the '80s wave dubs of General Strike and Leven Signs with the spiritual psych-reggae of Dadawah, while tracing a vein of blues into William Adamson's wonderful 'Eastern Version' and the 12-string abstractions of Henry Flynt and Blues Control & Laraaji, or even Jung Nam Hee's remarkable Kayagum Sanjo recordings from early 20th century Korea. There follows arch outsider, Moondog, who arguably shares a feel for sweetly dissonant melodic timbre, and dovetails with worldly wise avant compositions from Ghedalia Tazartes or Luc Ferrari, and a freely psychedelic sense of space and time with Mike Cooper's south pacific explorations, or equally in the transcendent expressions of Ethiopia's Dirashe Tribe and Jimi Tenor's Soft Focus ensemble in Finland.
