An interesting collaboration between Acid Mothers Temple members, French composer Richard Pinhas, and members of Peru's The Mad's and El Polen, creating an improvised psychedelic world with tinges of Andean folk and noise space rock.

A complex collection of sound poetry/collage, field recordings, compositions playing with language, noise, breath, and sound, which create an unnerving experience once its context is understood.

Through these tools, Peruvian artist and composer, Sergio Zevallos, uses a form of political sound fragmentation as a confronting response to his country's violence, racial and sexual discrimination, and nationalism.

I recommend you to read the text in the link below, in which Zevallos himself ... read more

14th-century bishop Ledrede was a controversial figure who accused Alice Kyteler of witchcraft and listed nightmarish charges against her, which ended up in the burning of her servant Petronilla de Meath, making her the first person burned at the stake. Ledrede, despite his deeds, also wrote beautiful poetry which was collected in the medieval manuscript, The Red Book of Ossory.

I'd just like to say that I've got utmost respect for how dedicated you are to music. I think your 100's look incredibly interesting, and I will likely go through them one day. I can see your knowledge carries over into films as well, as you have a wonderful letterbox. Thank you for the time you've spent here.

Hello, I love your album reviews.
My new EP, a very short one has just released. Will be grateful if you listen and review it. I need honest review, it could be harsh but I want to know what people thinks and how can I improve. There's is some Hindi Lyrics (very few) but the 90% of the album is English. Attaching the AOTY and Spotify link. Will be grateful forever if you respond. 🙏🙏
