Prana Crafter - Rupture of Planes International

"So As To Preserve The Mystery" by United Bible Studies

United Bible Studies return to Deep Water with what may be one of the crowning achievements of their ongoing musical journey. Since 2001 the Ireland/UK-based experimental folk ensemble has explored sounds ranging from traditional balladry to avant-garde noise; and while So As To Preserve The Mystery features plenty of the haunting vocal melodies and collective improvisation for which the group is known, it also rises beyond any genre and stylistic limits via an extended compositional logic that feels both centuries old and brand new. Alchemically marrying lo-fi psychedelic drones with sweeping orchestral arrangements, poetic folk song and classical structures; all in support of heartfelt paeans to nameless gods, apocalyptic requiems for the new/old world, and an overwhelming sense of wonder at the natural beauty of Éire and the Western Isles; this is United Bibles Studies at their transcendent finest. Seven tracks, 40 minutes.

Prana Crafter - Rupture of Planes

"Rupture of Planes" by Prana Crafter

Prana Crafter is William Sol, a (more-or-less) one-man band hailing from America’s great Pacific Northwest, and Rupture of Planes is his second CD release of heavily forested psychedelic goodness. In keeping with the Eastern wisdom traditions referenced by the band name, to the extent this new album ruptures any planes it’s with the larger goal of embodying their differences on some higher level: Incorporating both songs and instrumentals, recorded at home as well as a professional studio, all alone or with backing, sweetly heartfelt balladry alongside shamanic guitar overload, classic psych-rock roots in experimental/lo-fi settings, deep woods ruggedness right next to dressed-up arrangements, electric intensity sharing space with blissed-out serenity, third-eye visions with dirt underneath their fingernails. Twelve tracks, 62 minutes.
