John Cratchley Gently arcing and looping,retracing its own steps and turning in on itself with infinitely imperceptible changes of nuance...modulating tone and amplitude through long and extended time sequences..minimal,almost subliminal,gestures in change of emphasis...subtle and elusive,mercurial and intricate...powerful in its persistence and calming in its tenacity...crafted and conjured...all these things happening at once and separately as you listen:aural alchemic transmutation of the senses.A Deep Listening experience for extended meditative periods...especially recommended for perturbed spirits seeking respite and equanimity.

Jessica Hopper I got this as an actual IRL cassette from my favorite label, Teenage Teardrops but sometimes there is not a tape player around, you know? So I had to buy it for those times. It's deeply meditative and enhances my awareness of the world with it's twinkling. It's also the most like some of my favorite Lucky Dragons shows.
