Starving Weirdos – Land Lines
Haunting, ethereal hypnosis music. Adam was spot-on in describing their previous record as “Music for walks late at night in solitude”—this album could be the nightmare after that late-night walk. Abstract, psychedelic drone, some mystical krautjazz meditation, futuristic raga, shamanistic soundscapes. A solid roster of guest musicians bring a lot of variety, from Aimee Hennessy’s reverbed mezzo-soprano vox on 1 and 6, plus frequent collaborator Steve Lazar, etc. Play any of these tripped-out five-dimensional jams at any time of day.
RIYL Tangerine Dream, Sun Araw, Zac Nelson, Daughters of the Sun (45 on 33), hallucinogens.

Side A
1. (6:12) Cinematic krautrock dreamscape: psychedelic priestess chanting, slow plodding rhythms and outerspace vortex synth.
2. (6:51) Mystical, cavernous ritual of atonal plucked strings; gentle underwater jazz ruminations slowly emerge.
3. (6:51)* nocturnal field recordings and droning, haunting half-melodies. The soundtrack to being abducted by some unknown Lovecraftian terror.
4. (9:01)* kaleidoscopic raga-esque soundbed of bliss, erratic but contemplative
Side B
5. (12:48) twinkling toy piano lullaby slowly swallowed up by morbid industrial darkness, scintillating synth speculation
6. (8:06) drifting underwater ritual chant, tribal yet futuristic—the soundtrack to being sacrificed atop a Mayan temple by aliens
(CD BONUS TRACK)
7. (9:43)* droning synth monotony gradually joined by some plodding, faded percussion and sitar jamming.
