Quite an amazing mono LP addendum to the recent Alpine Frequency double LP (FTR 167). Originally planned as a lathe album in an edition of 25, when our lathe cutter retired unexpectedly, the project shifted to be a “regular” LP pressed in an edition of 100. And what an album it is.

There is an in-yr-face quality to the smoke filled burble of the psych bits that is joined at the lips with the incredible presence of the völkier parts, which simultaneously manifest a Folkways/Arhoolie documentary-vibe and the early gusts of St. Joans’ very special wind-control.

It’s a singular record in the vast MVEE canon, and one that rewards deep, late night investigation. You have been warned.   – Byron Coley, 2015
