Boomkat Product Review:
This record wouldn’t fare so well when experienced in a smokey haze of familiarity and comfortable numbness, no, you need opiates to truly get the most out of this one. I’m talking Victorian opium dens, strange old Chinese gangsters with thin moustaches with long pipes, drug addled poets struggling to come up with their next gold-laced word, rats and the stench of the city seeping through cracks in the drains. What we have here is a veritable trip of a record, a sensory overload, a journey into lands far beyond our own – Bardo Pond brothers Michael and John Gibbons make use of Sitar, Guitar and Cumbas while their friends Michael Zanghi and Aaron Igler add percussion and light electronics for a tribal explosion of rhythm and harmony. It works too, there’s nothing worse than a record like this approached in the wrong way, all tired cliché and irritating hippy crap, but somehow Alasehir manage to avoid this. They sidestep the patchouli and head straight for the jugular, a main-line into your brain. This is narcotic music of the finest kind, you almost don’t need the pharmaceuticals at all.
