Magic Carpathians Project - Euscorpius Carpathians Euscorpius Carpathians
Psych Used - LP V22 Obuh
Mint, Limited 2003 Original In Laminated Heavy Cardboard Jacket. This Is 109 Of 350 Copies. "For The Last Five Years, The Magic Carpathians Project Have Released A Handful Of Superlative But Criminally Ignored Albums Of Ethno-Psychedelia. The Core Of The Group Is Vocalist Anna Nacher And Instrumentalist Marek Stycynski, Who Was The Leader Of The Seminal Polish Psychedelic-Progressive Rock Band Atman For 25 Years. The Carpathians' Mindbending New Album Euscorpius Carpathicus Adds Outer Space To The List Of Regional Influences, Concentrating On Sparse Cosmic Settings, Atmospheric Production And Haunted Vocals. It's A Conscious Move Away From The Massive Drones Of Previous Releases. This Is Clear From The Opening Track "Fishyfish," A Loosely Improvised Assemblage Of Chinese And Slovakian Flutes Set Against The Galactic Ripples Of An EMS VCS311. The Ghostly "Lavender, Satin & Gingerbread" Features The Fragile Vocals Of Anna Nacher, Recalling Bjork's Intimate Delivery On Vespertine. For "Pawpaw Girl" The Multi-Tracked Vocals Are At The Fore, As A Meandering Bass And A Forest Of Gentle Chimes Answer Her Plaintive Intonations: "Straight To The Garden/Until I Find/A Way Below The Surface/Below The Waterfall". "Fat Moon" Is The Album's Most Evocative Track, A 12-Minute Ambient Lunar Orbit Featuring Delicately Reverberating Guitars And Eerie Saxophone Squeals That Leave Vaporous Trails Of Ectoplasm In Their Wake. "Amp.Ass" Is An Atonal Clamor Of Chaotic Free-Jazz, Assisted By The Noisy Distortions Of An Overloaded Guitar Amp. The Tense, Forward Momentum Of "Water On The Hill" Operates As An Invocation To Nature, Cyclical Layers Of Trancelike Guitar Ornamented By Synthesized Birdcalls. With Euscorpius Carpathicus, The Magic Carpathians Have Expanded Their Already Impressive Musical Scope Even Further, Without Losing That Essential Spark Of Creative Intuition That Consistently Impregnates Their Music With Its Uniquely Spectral Beauty." - Jonathan Dean, Brain Washed... more details
