Råd Kjetil and the Loving Eye of God - s/t
(God Damn I'm a Countryman Records 005)
From Aural Innovations #31 (June 2005)
This is the latest release from the great Swedish freaks from up north. This is forest music for late at night by the friends of the Spacious Mind. The opening track is really amazing. "I Dauflom" is next and is mostly strange sounds for the majority of the 10 minutes, quite strange. "They Used to be like Children, Carefeee…Always Happy and Laughing" follows like the first track into a great psychedelic forest of thoughts and feelings. Each track is a new journey. "Dal-Jani Välta" is perhaps a bit Indian influenced and is the only track with a heavy part that gets quite psyched out. Amazing stuff. "Let's Build a Small Wessel and Land Inside Her Heart"….well, the title pretty much tells the story. Beautiful. The CD ends with "Deleiers Dess", a very nice chill out tune for deep in the forest. Close your eyes and hear the sounds..
If you like the Brotherhood of Eternal Love, Jen's solo record, the Spacious Minds acoustic CD (long out of print), then pick this one up for sure. You will not be disappointed!
