Toneshift: it’s sculpted into a far-out abstraction that is quite rare – an enjoyable and challenging listen. It’s a quirky, perky conclusion that will ring in my ears for hours. Turn it up!
Freq: There is a gauzy, gently distorted feel that is unlike how we normally experience sound.
Fear and Loathing: This is Psychedelia without the drugs, or Prog without the pretensions. Taking music forward to a place where you feel it rather than just hear it. You have to allow yourself to be fully submerged to achieve the full effect, but if you can open yourself to the possibilities, this album is going to give you a whole new perspective. It doesn’t rock, it doesn’t roll, but it moves in all the right directions.
