RIYL: wax begonias & sugar magnolias
Here’s a little cosmic interruption to your daily dosage of clickbait journalism, political rants and TPS reports. Â Meet Manchester psychtrumentalistsÂ Desmadrados Soldados De Ventura, 6 soul brothers honored with a pledge to bring transcendental aural treats to your ears. Â If you love hearing live cuts of The Grateful Dead veering off path and breaking into 15 minute guitar jam sessions, you’ve found your new band. Â First track Defixiones slowly builds over 22 minutes of guitar and organ explorations, and just when you think it can’t possibly go any higher, it catapults into theÂ thermosphere. Â I’m normally not super into long guitar solos, but this makes for a great exception. Â Check out the entire track below.
The group has assembled 10 monster tracks for you, and it took 4 entire records to house it all. Â Needless to say, this one will cost you a bit more, especially if you live in the states, but if you do the math, it’s less than $15 a record before shipping. Â Not bad! Â Now off you go, peaceniks. Â Go make the world a better place.
Strictly limited 4LP edition on 180g vinyl in black disco bags housed in a heavy card box with stunning artwork by Bart De Paepe (Sloow Tapes) and a full-colour 8-page booklet packed with pics and notes on the recording by Richard Formby.
