SHRI SWIFTY & THE MANDALI OF MANTRA-THE CANALS OF THE ATLANTEAN PLAIN, CD, 1999, USA


This cabal of kosmiche voyagers was featured once before on MS (under the name Big Swifty) via their Experimental Art Film single, but this feature length outing goes quite some ways further toward establishing their significance within the parameters of late model lysergic gush, the extended length of these pieces affording this crew the legroom they require to properly unfurl their oriental rugs, hookahs and time lag accumulators. Their suspended approach to time is marked by sprawling string drones accompanied by tidal flows of analog gloop, all meticulously interwoven in a way that suggests a mid-ground between Taj Mahal Travellers, Richard Skelton projects like A Broken Consort/Caroussel/Harlassen and, indeed, the sorta heavy lidded cosmic blear that my own band Vas Deferens Organization were tapping circa our Zyzzybaloubah album.
