An ultra obscure disc of mesmerizing chimes, kalimba, saxophone and lo end electronics. It's an utterly compelling mixture of stuttering woodwinds, whimisical bells/chants and warm sunbeams. Recorded in 1980, this is true oblique outsider music. The whole disc is steeped in tradition while sounding as if it was beamed down from a satellite from the distant future.

This lp seems to have taken years to find but the wait has definately been worth it. There's lots of sleazy moog action on this rather lovely 1974 Southern library. A few of the tracks have appeared on comps compiled by hipsters Barry 7 [Add 'N' To X] and Luke Vibert but there's still plenty of compelling electronic squiggle doink to investigate.

.... I've been playing this wonderful lp non stop. A strange mix of choral chants, sitar and jazz. It's a really special and individual sounding record which makes it very hard to reference. Think of the spectral sheen of William Sheller or the choral groove of David Axlerod and y'r only halfway there. It has very odd psych production touches with strange grooves weaving in and out. Highly recommended indeed.
