The first I knew of this (then upcoming) album was when Dave emailed me about
an album he'd just completed with three long meditational Krautrock inspired
works, all with suitably enigmatic German titles. His notes included
"Things played just before and during the recording of this album: Guru
Guru's UFO, Amon Duul II's Tanz Der Lemminge, King Crimson '73 bootlegs, Pre
- Dark Side Pink Floyd, Zendik Farm Orgaztra's Danze of the Cozmic Warriorz,
various Bevis Frond albums."
Of course, everyone perceives music differently. The overall feel that came
across in this music to me was the French Pôle label explorers of the mid to
late 1970's, like Verto, Fluence, and especially a feel like an understated
"Inside The Dream". If I do detect anything Germanic, there's a
hint of Para Dieswärts Düül and Deuter's Aum.
Influences aside, this is mostly the unique art of Dave Powell, avoiding his
patent hurdy gurdy altogether, for a deep bath of sonic esoterica, melting
the mind and senses...
