Heart Land – “Heart Land” – [Cream of Turner]

Who woulda thunk America’s “Heart Land” would fit so nicely
in KFJC’s weird earhole? Actually, this is New Hope, PA’s
“Heart Land” sharing genetic material and a flaming spark
of imagination with Sunlore. There are some heavy sounds
here for rupture rock, but also a hefty amount of lightness,
cascading electronics that stirred the ghosts of Popol Vuh,
at least for me. Instrumental improvisations that could be
the soundtrack to films Werner Herzog is not allowed to
make outside of his mind? Psychedelic not in the guitars
trying to be sitars way, but in the slipperiness of sound
and synth. Urban sherpa meditation? An interesting blend
of organic and inorganic music, like finding a perfect
metal orb deep in the forest. With drums and gunshots
ringing off in the distance at times. As a bonus, this
release can handle increased RPM’s no problem. Let her
rip…and dig the retro library/locomotive log packaging
while you do so.
