sun araw - Off Duty + Boat Trip
Awesome double header from the modern psych craftsman Cameron Stallone aka Sun Araw; three new tracks recorded earlier in 2010, and the 'Boat Trip' from way back when (er...2008). 'Off Duty' is essentially the down time after 'On Patrol', deeds done and kicking back with the biggest, most potent zoot you've been bothered to make in a while. 'Last Chants' makes a visceral entrance with cataclysmic starburst noise subsiding to reveal the slouchiest, loping psyche-dub rhythm vocals hollering from 20 metres away... or is he right next to you, no bother, i'm high and this sounds f*cking cool (i'm not really, y'know, i'm just getting into it maan). Next 'Midnight Locker' evens the keel, centred on droning, down-pitched melodica played by Augustus Pablo from his submarine in the bathroom over bowel-quaking subs heard from the basement, while all kinda FX gremlins gate samples from the other rooms of this freakin' haunted house. 'Deep Temple' finishes the 'Off Duty' trip with an eleven minute visit to the attic, where we find a shrine to Terry Riley amidst a hydroponic skunk farm and lie down to the sound of a thousand unremembered dreams, caught in ecstatic suspension between a furious axe solo and a the sound of Jackie Mittoo dribbling on his Wurlitzer. Messy in the best possible way. Finally 'Boat Trip' is like some mystical steppers excursion to the Bermuda triangle, booming Wolf Eyes tracks over a ten foot stack into the fog over a placid sea before 'Canopy' hits a remote island and sits down to chew peyote with the natives. Or something. ESSENTIAL!
