Boomkat Product Review:
‘Cuneiform for Pumapunka’ is the latest limited offering from Light Sounds Dark, this time gathering enlightened glimpses from decades of underground sonic ritual...
Taking cues from the mystery of how ancient Sumerian glyphs are inscribed on the ancient site of Puma Punka - on the opposite side of the planet and millennia before recorded meetings of the Middle East and South America - the latest LSD compilation is a real peach, reaching far into the unknown with 15 tracks as oblique and enigmatic as the megalithic stones which make up Puma Punku, high in the Andes Mountains.
As ever, we’re lost for IDs, but we assure you the music is visionary, ranging from an amazing, near-side long tract of field recordings and elemental, cosmic electronics, thru to all manner of barely-harnessed rhythms, mind-bending drones and tremulous ambient pop froth. Trust you’re in for a proper trip.
