Invisible Pyramid [coll] – [Last Visible Dog Records]
Lawdy this is massssssssssiiiiiivvvvvveee!
Each disk alone is more than a meal, the calvacade of artists
would be a festival to end all festivals. Free rock mining
yields a motherloding mind-rush. Somewhere in the psych melee
that is Bardo Pond’s “Bufo Periglenes” my heart stopped cold,
I died, I disappeared. Only to rematerialize in an acoustic
rebirth at that song’s end. Fun with Fonal friends, and I
remain convinced that Steven R. Smith has dialed my psychic
connection line, nice metamorphosis in his moth’s middle.
Breathing exercises with fair Fursaxa, the long tooth of
Wolfmangler, static triangulation via Ashtray Naviations,
A loony parade from Avarus, dodo-a-gogo? Or a-gone, aghast.
The cuts share that LVD appreciation for sonic vortices
with artists given ample time to explore phase shifting.
Meanwhile titularly the pieces tribute those gone before
us. The sound lives on past their extinction…the story of
the Huia alone is lamentable. And what of the Drunken Fish
its legacy lives on etched in vinyl as surely as this CD
six-pack will leave its rings around for future fossil
finders. High accolades to Chris for shooting the Moon,
and praise be to Dog!
