Mythos Folkways Vol.3 Divination Night - Raccoo-oo-oon

Mythos - Folkways Vol.3 - Divination Night

Plenty going on here over the tapes 45 mins, leading to satisfying re-immersions (personally I’m counting six so far) as metamorphic shifts of perspective tirelessly hold your ear’s imagination.

Love the way the sounds amass / expand, as the tracks unfold almost organically. The divisions blurring, de-tuning into some serious psych-mush of fragmented instrument haze and mummified mouth muffle. I like the way there’s always an underlying rhythm keeping all of this a float, and Raccoo-oo-oon being Raccoo-oo-oon you’re never too far from a bit of instrument thrashing.

Side one, after a piano/flute preamble demos some lovely guitar/drum thunder, whilst side two is more broken down rhythmic sprinkle and squiggle, with an excellent bit of devotional yelling to a fucked drum/cymbal static backdrop.

This is only the bare bones, a rough summary of what’s going on. I wouldn’t want to ruin your listening experience trying to pin down the magic, but one thing is for certain, you’re definitely in for a treat with this one.



Expect more Raccoo-oo-oon postings soon - can't seem to get enough of them.
