Secret Birds - In Hex

A challenging and progressive confluence of styles from Secret Birds, with In Hex on No Kings. Wonderful transition between genres, from front to back. Tracks like the hypnotic opener Century Waves bathe the ear in damaged, low resolution loops, sometimes somber, others warm and uplifting. Others, like the exceptional close, Zen Pyramid, begin in a swirl of loose reverberating drums, and end in a tumbling cyclical mix of buzzing guitar. A grey (or is it pink?) area where drum circles, hallucinatory images, electronics, and sludge guitar fuzz share an unusual kinship. A future earth forest ritual where extraterrestrial druids have begun reconstructing the Eagle Twin studio outtakes. An extremely rewarding and transportive recording. Killer.

Edition of just 80 copies, sweet pink risograph j card, channel enlightenment directly from No Kings.
