ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE / MELTING PARAISO UFO / IN O TO INFINITY

$45.00 (AUD)


Having previously embarked upon a cover version of Terry Riley's perennially popular minimalist opus 'In C', Japanese psych-rock legends Acid Mothers Temple return to the concept, this time offering slightly more... esoteric readings of the text with extended improvisations 'In 0', 'In A' (ok, so that one's not all that weird), 'In Z' and 'In ∞'. As the various titles suggest, this is a mightily weird album - yes, even more so than the usual AMT freak-outs - and it's great to hear the band testing the limits of their experimental parameters. Despite having the most sensible title, 'In A' proves to be the most interesting variation, reeling through primal vocal loops (including the multi-layered tones of Cotton Casino) and grinding drones over a captivating eighteen minutes.
