Angels in America/Weyes Blood Double Release from Northern Spy
A 20-minute cassette or FLAC download of the double release on Northern Spy will give you some rather adventurous romping through no-man's land. Angels in America combines moody electronics, cultish chanting and recitation, almost like Stockhausen meets Lydia Lunch meets ritual music from some nameless ethnos.
Weyes Blood has a two female voice, guitar strumming folkie weirdness vibe thing happening and then some cosmic electric eye underground atmospherics come into play.
Gee, I don't know. I like this one but is it indispensable? Probably not. Yet it has an early ESP cosmic psych innocent hybrid quality to it that is appealing. Click the Northern-Spy link for more info.
