"Taking Lizard Mountain (by Frequency)" by Psychic Frost
"Psychic Frost" Psychic Frost is the new duo project from Pittsburgh-based sonic insurrectionists Mike Tamburo and Matt McDowell; while both are better known for their solo work, they’ve also played together in various forms for over a decade. This is their first recorded outing under the PF banner, and it’s a doozy – a pair of lengthy (side-long, they used to call ‘em) pieces of form-extension and –destruction, the first an epic composition for two guitars and effects, with modular sections shifting from dual fingerpicking to walls of looping noise and beyond; the second a live recording for amplified hammered dulcimer and what sounds like an electric oud, exorcising the demons via intense improvisational interplay on a modal theme of indeterminate Eastness. Best experienced via full-body immersion, so check your short attention span at the door and get ready to, as they say, “taste the Frost”. Two tracks, 43 minutes.

Deep Water releases reviewed by Mr. Atavist

When I hear micro-label, I think of a result that is hand-crafted, something that values process just as much the end product, ingredients that can be as natural as they are modern and a concern for quality over quantity. That fits not only Deep Water Acres, but the sounds they are releasing. ...

Brother Ong - Deep Water Creation

Exotic and hypnotic sounds are looped, tweaked and set free to lure you into a space where you can simply go for the ride and stretch out, or you can get lost in the subtle and subversive details that reveal themselves with repeated visits. ...

Enumclaw - Painted Valley of the Mineral Monks

Enumclaw collapses the modern sounds, and tools, into a gentle cadence of throbs and emanations that are seemingly free of gravity, without meandering or slipping into electro-noodling. ...

Psychic Frost

Cinematic in scope and cosmic in size without the bombast, Psychic Frost manage to steer their sonic exodus into something personal without cutting short the inner and outer voyages. ...

Psychic Frost - Taking Lizard Mountain (by Frequency)

"Taking Lizard Mountain (by Frequency)" by Psychic Frost Psychic Frost – the duo of Mike Tamburo and Matt McDowell – returns to Deep Water for a second disc of (mostly) instrumental explorations, both more diverse and more concise than their 2011 debut. Taking Lizard Mountain (by Frequency) opens in familiar sonic territory – hypnotic compositions for electrified hammer dulcimer and guitar – but the Psychic sonic expedition soon moves into terra incognita, climbing through fields of free-jazz drumming and into high valleys of effected drones and thunderous percussion, finally reaching the sage at the summit by going “Under Your Skin,” a surprising vocal number that echoes both early Eno and early Woods. Psychedelic excursions that span classic progressions and contemporary lo-fi experimentation like nobody’s business, and a mandatory trip for all interested parties. Five tracks, 34 minutes.

Raising Holy Sparks, Psychic Frost, & Pairdown reviewed by Mr. Atavist

Mr Atavist has some kind words about recent Deep Water releases:

Raising Holy Sparks - A Mendicant Hymnal

"Whatever journey it takes you on, it’s yours as much as it is Colohan’s. The universality of it doesn’t just allow that, it encourages it. Contemplative, spiritual, and ‘holy’ transcendent, A Mendicant Hymnal is far richer than its order’s subscribers claim to be."
