Boomkat Product Review:
What's that? Some of you squares didn't manage to pick up one of the 50 copies of the original edition of this, as self-released on CD-r? Well, don't worry, Three Lobed have taken pity on you losers and released it for digital, and you'll be glad it's available again: this is on of the duo's most far-out instrumental excursions to date, launching into sublime hallucinogenic drone from the very beginnings of 'Rural Sa', which sounds at once akin to the slippery lap steel experiments of Susan Alcorn or Heather Leigh Murray and bloopy, early electronics. Next thing you know, there's some sitar drifting your way, and the duo venture into a surprisingly disciplined take on more recognisably raga-influenced forms. Finishing the first side, there's a dose of simple, palate-cleansing feedback, and then yet more articulate cosmic drone on the flip, culminating in the gloriously dissonant 'Raag Ghetto, Again & Again'. None of their song-based material here, but as supremely experimental space rock goes, MV & EE are at the very forefront of their craft.
