Freak folk/percussion odyssey. Sprawling rotating experimental collective out of Portland brings a mix of psych-tinged pretty folk and Indian raga percussion tracks. The folk songs have traces of free percussion, space/dream/psych rock and the Indian percussion tracks (2 and 5) are just completely fucking strange. Jackie-O-Motherfucker are legendary weirdos. Play this if you like No-Neck Blues Band, Bardo Pond, White Rainbow, Fursaxa, Vibracathedral Orchestra. No FCCs.
*1. Pretty slow folk ballad, builds and builds, non-singer vocals. Really, the only thing keeping this from being on the Garden State soundtrack/pitchfork is the length and the vocals; everything else is pretty easy on the ears. (7:08)
2. Tape and drum loops in some sort of spiritual Indian polyrhythmic pattern with a backing raga drone and some hip-hoppy/electronic samples thrown in for good measure. (7:08)
*3. More pretty acoustic folk with dreamy, spaced textures and free jazz-like percussion. (5:23)
4. Repetitive male vocals, hypnotic, druggy, slow pretty folk, strange, manipulated reversed guitars/textures. (6:12)
5. More hypnotic bizarro percussion/loops. Too avant to quit. (9:31)
*6. Almost a surfy feel, intense snare, distant vocals, slamming piano, noisy bass, cool strange rock. (4:57)
