Upgrade of the original cassette release on Sweat Lodge Guru. Moscow multi-instrumentalist Ivan Karib who also plays in Kon Tiki Gemini makes wondrous, spaced-out and multi-layered electronics that float somewhere between Ducktails and Sean McCann. The tropics invade Russia and clatter to the floor. Ghost guitars ring hollow, looping around and endlessly searching for synthetic embrace. Sweat Lodge Guru described the recordings as “Music crafted for the sunny and tropical paradises of our minds. Seasonal temperament is shared via magnetic vibes; we can all exist in the same balmy and tropical head-state no matter what our physical locale may be. Pure vibrations that ebb and flow on the appeal of tidal moons.” Mastered by Anders Peterson. Edition of 300 copies.

At once fragile, monolithic and meditative, this collaboration between Mpala Garoo and Clathus yields one of our heaviest releases to date. Three long tracks of murky, deep-sea drones and fungal drift. Melodies soaked in reverb, delay and flanger become smeared into a dreamlike haze, slowly floating through the near-dark depths of some distant sea. Yet through the gloom come traces of light from the surface, shimmering to the depths, offering glimpses of the strange coral cathedrals, long-sunken mountain ranges and bewildering creatures that dwell in this abyssopelagic zone.The instruments at work here are not important — in fact, it’s almost impossible to discern exactly what they are. What matters is where this tape takes you. Aura Level Fountain do not merely create gorgeous tones, they create an entire aural soundscape and leave you there to feel your way around.
