Boomkat Product Review:
Combining ambitious poly-ethnic folk, intricate orchestrations, electronic drone and a spot of far-flung free jazz, this Land Of Kush album is quintessentially Constellation. This one comes from Montreal's Sam Shalabi, best known for his work in Molasses and Shalabi Effect along with solo outings for Alien8. As a measure of this album's scope and ambition, Shalabi named the record after Thomas Pynchon's novel Against The Day - the central inspiration behind the music here, right down to its five-part structure, with each section following one of the book's chapters. The album is an imposing but undoubtedly impressive beast of a thing, negotiating its way around complex arrangements that utilise strings, brass, woodwind, electronics and oud, all the while eluding any clearcut classification. An engulfing and especially strong release from Constellation.
