Subterranean Ritual II

jasonk One of my favorite albums of all time and one of only two tapes (Parashi's "Troika" on Stunned being the other) that I bought two copies of, one to keep near the tape deck at home and one to keep in the car. And like all truly classic psychedelic albums, Subterranean Ritual II sounds just as divine at 3am with a head full of strange chemicals as it does driving on the freeway home from work (with the windows down and at full volume, naturally).

about

FULL-LENGTH VIDEO FOR MOON TEMPLE HERE: www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkHV2Cl3yzk

"The 'improvised sound rituals' featured on Midday Veil’s 'Subterranean Ritual II' shimmer and sway in a slow motion psychedelic breeze. With droning analog synth, reverberant baritone guitar, and gentle tom strokes leading the way, Emily Pothast’s treated wordless vocals fill in the spaces between, creating a spectral ambience that recedes and crests to the group’s own highly attuned sense of time and (s)pace. Even at the most outright rockist moments (the end of “Moon Temple”), the sound is more ‘ceremonial’ than ‘space’ rock. But you can call it whatever you want, group catharsis seems to be the main objective here." - CASSETTE GODS
