The band here consists of a quintet. Vinnie Paternostro is on drums, Gene Janas at the double bass, Jay Reeve on synthesizer, Michel Kristof on electric guitar and sitar, and Julien Palomo on keys.
They give us an extended outing that combines a blend of instrumental collectivity with a dynamic changing freedom that does not pulsate so much as express freetime collaging, with neo-psychedelic avant immediacy.
It's outside all the way, with electric guitar onslaughts that blend with washes of keys, bass and drums.
Imagine what some of the vintage psychedelic groups did live for a minute or two in heady times, then imagine that expanded into a long extended 2-CD voyage into space. That's something of what you get.
I find the whole thing fascinating and bracing. If you aren't into the avant electric thing you may shy away from this. That of course is your affair. Intrepid travelers of the spaceways will no doubt take to it like I did. There is nothing compromising here, not even a tune to get your bearings. So take off with it.
