I saw that Bash Nova put out a cool new video and I wanted to help share it.
Bash Nova is an awesome ambient sounds project that hails out of Scotland.
In a nut shell: Bash Nova captures the imagery of nature and sifts it through a really awesome kaleidoscope effect. This mixed with the ambient sounds makes for a really enjoyable experience for multiple senses. (Especially if you are smoking weed like I am now.) The song is titled Re Volution and is a track off the new album Contact of Flesh.
So anyway, check out Bash Nova HERE, Download Contact of Flesh for Free HERE, and watch this awesome video below.
Now, it would seem, that France has been bombarded with such demons of chaos as well.
Our friend Pollux shared a disturbing video in the SP Facebook group the other day titled Black Skull. Upon observation, it is clear that he has some how managed to tear a hole into our own reality and take us on a journey through a pineal highway that is sure to rip you out of this world.
Now and only now do I know what it is like to astral travel through a computer wire and slip into oblivion. It is not coincidence that I happened upon this video while super stoned on spirit smoke.
Hurrah for it’s glory.
If you listen closely, you can hear the whispers of the resonant being…
The album I would like to take a moment to review is Orville Wilcox’s “Recollections.”
Recollections is almost two years old now. What’s funny is that the last time I listened to it heavily was around the same time I was assembling my last net release for Kitty on Fire: Tunnel to the Underground Vol.2.
What can I say about this album?
It’s amazing to say the least. In the past four years I have heard MANY releases come out of the underground. But releases of this quality are few and far between. Recollections is an ambient MASTERPIECE.
What makes Recollections so good?
The atmosphere. This album is pure atmosphere.
As a whole, the album is very ethereal. It’s not really busy, very simple, using an assortment of pads.
Listening to it is like traveling through a series of phantom like worlds. Some of these worlds are subtle and even relaxing at times. Other worlds are dark, ominous, and leave you with feelings of hopelessness and melancholy.
Yes it is that powerful.
Very few pieces of media have managed to strike such emotional chords with me. I urge everyone to take the trip and give Recollections a listen. A great album to smoke some of the shire’s finest weed and relax and space out to. Some of my favorite tracks are: The White Ship, Radiant City, and Metallic Trilobite Colony. But I recommend you give it all a listen.
