On Land In The Sky, Alfredo Thiermann (formerly of the Chilean krautrock band Föllakzoid) and Tres Warren (the Psychic Ills mastermind) meet up on the astral plane for a series of extended sonic meditations. The results are spellbinding, calling to mind a collaboration between Popol Vuh’s Florian Fricke at his most pastoral and Ry Cooder at his stoniest. With Thiermann providing solemn/sturdy piano backdrops (with wisps of ghostly synthesizer drifting through as well) for Warren’s eerie slide guitar to float over, it’s ominous, beautiful and becalming all at once. A heady listen, to say the least. words / t wilcox
