Sungod from Austin, Texas have been working hard and consistently since I was introduced to them at SXSW in 2011. Expo '70 shared the same stage that night early on in the showcase week along with Quiet Evenings, Hubble, Woodsman, Toby Aronson, Kevin Shields, Thousand Foot Whale Claw, just to name a few. Unfortunately I arrived to the show just as Sungod were in on the main stage performing, I didn't get to catch much that evening, but Mike of Sungod and I swapped tapes. Some point in the week I busted out their self-released hand packaged cassette release and came to find out that this was a majestic collection of superb drones, crafted well with great tones and the patience to let the instrumentation blend together.
This is a re-release of that great cassette that was traded to me. Sounds hints of early Six Organs of Admittance, La Monte Young and obscure new age synth workouts while incorporating free-form playing under those synth textures, building each track with intensity.
