(ER035) Alex Ischenkau & Ihor Tvoronovych – Oh, Just Can’t Collect My Thoughts !..

Here is one for looping, and then looping again. A meditation that blankets miles and miles of elemental land. A mystic shroud across your mind, hypnotizing you and tuning your mind into that world, the headwaters, from which the different spiritual ideals of this world all come and seperate into their respective rivers, the veins of the earth. Drinking from the headwaters, you taste the savor of source. Meditations, musings on the ether from which our sorrows and celebrations emerged and wrapped around the buildings like broad tendril. Such is neofolk, and such is what we have for you today. This marks another piece in a neofolk series from Alex Ischenkau, one of my favorite musicians. The headmaster of the incredibly hyperactive Genetic Trance netlabel & it’s non-music sublabel Default Recordings, Alex has provided the netlabel nova with countless albums under a supernaturally high number of side projects covering any and every genre and also creating entire new musical manifestations. Vziel Projet, Liquid Music Project, Marasmatronics Projet, Default Artist, No More Life, Fandorim Projet, Das Gonob Quasiforma, just to name a few! A truly diverse and prolific soul with so many profound servings for this, the free musical feast. Here, he tips his hat to the mystics of folk music, he on percussion and vocals with the amazing guitar stylings of Ihor Tvoronovych. A profound collaboration, the song gives forth the emissions of a deeply obscured Ashrama. Ischenkau’s vocals cut to the core of your heartstrings and sends you into cosmic contemplation we thought only Current 93 could achieve (the album artwork would make David Tibet proud). The percussion is raw and dynamic. The guitar strumming is passionate and sustaining, taking us in unexpected directions while always staying put. All in all, this is an honest, homegrown, genuine collaboration among talented souls with visions high above the nebulas, soaking in the heavens. Drink from these headwaters, moisten your lips with this fine single!

Emanate the residue, my friends. All foundations have dismantled. The veils have all lifted. The stench of rot is in the air. Breathe in the aroma deeply, my friends. You, a fellow secreter of radiance and soul. Let us dissolve reality and float about in the primordial world where everything imaginable comes to pass. Come, transcend the mud by digging into it. My friends, let us bask in the effluvia of it all!
