Spectral Hypnosis : Lucky Dragons, Breezy Nix, oOoOO, Future Blondes MP3 Streams & Downloads

A recurring series, featuring mesmerizing songs for one to lose sense of time and space, mind and body.

Lucky Dragons

The back-and-forth ebb-and-flow found in this track, “Existers,” found in all layers and all elements, compresses and decompresses like winds and waves, like sand and fog. It swirls around your head like a musical tornado slowly engulfing your mind and sneaking its way in… but in the most tranquil, most peaceful of ways. It feels a bit Buddhist and thoughtfully, quietly disengaged, and the description below, about the forthcoming LP, Existers, seems to fall in line with that interpretation.

EXISTERS is a 21-minute long mini-album of brand-new songs by lucky dragons, produced in cooperation with artist / designer Jesse Hlebo of Swill Children. EXISTERS resist without intervening, subsist without consuming. They are everything about living except life, showing the effects of attention on a thing over time. “EXISTERS harkens to all things slow, delicate, and sharp–music for drifters, onlookers, and aliens of the everyday… By largely replacing the acoustic instrumentation and field-recorded sources of those records with the crackling pulse of modular synthesizer and alien sharpness of spectral processing, EXISTERS is both the wall and the push against it, a direct impression, a tribute to the boundary and how the boundary can be crossed.”

Breezy Nix

Relatedly, Luke Fischbeck of Lucky Dragons has been spreading the word about this awesome record label, New Other Thing. This 16-minute track by Breezy Nix, entitled “Oerwouden,” is like a singing bowl tapping, wind chiming, spirit channeling mega good time, certainly worthy of repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat, repeat…

oOoOO have a new EP, Our Loving Is Hurting Us coming out April 10th, 2012, on Tri Angle Records. “NoWayBack” guest stars Butterclock (one of two tracks on the record to do so), and has a slow-motion percussive quality for one to drool over.

Future Blondes

This track, “VILA’GOK 1,” is unfortunately not available for download — but it is does celebrate Houston-based Future Blondes at some of their danciest yet. This track was a part of their last LP, limited to 100 copies — but it will be re-released when possible.
