The Living Sky: Enter the Sky (cassette)
Seven new sunset rides through morphing mirage, fading fast into forever. First round from the new high mileage vapor trail unit THE LIVING SKY, delivering cosmic rock & roll knowledge from the lesser known highways.
Debut album from new duo project of Jason Millard and Matthew Himes from the wonderful Minneapolis, Minnesota psych label Home & Garden.
The boys have worked together closely in various capacities for years, and THE LIVING SKY is the latest strange form, a blasted blend of smeared astral boogie, garage fuzz drift, and bleary eyed groove from the frozen Midwest.
"The world is a cylinder inside me,
on these unleaded wings I've learned to fly.
Two globes spinning in feline eyes.
On beams I ride, till freedom fried."
With elements of whispy commune rock, deep fried drone, and an almost tropical left-field funk, the tunes are guitar heavy, quasi-rural, with accents of Farfisa, hand drums, flute, wailing feedback, and mystery ocean tone.
