Boomkat Product Review:
Ecstatic, zonked and skewed synth and harmonium drones from Jaime Fennelly (Peeesseye, Acid Birds) in his Mind Over Mirrors mode. 'High & Upon' is a reissue of his debut album for Gift Tapes which was created while isolated on an island in the Salish Sea in Washington from 2007 till 2010. Intensely focussed and repetitious waves of harmonium organ and fender rhodes are fed through a gauntlet of oscillators and tape delay until they create woozy, wheezing overtones which lick into the red and distort the original tones into a deep harmonic spectrum of hallucinatory highs, warped mid and subductive lows, growing with a dedicated and psychotomimetic effect that's hard to shake. This is what happens when you leave one man on an island for years.
