Bucolic tenderness within the gauze of vocalese residing in the realm between wakefulness and sleep. This is the next sound of Morpheus. Jackie-O Motherfucker is a portable temple of unexpurgated mania and trance-inducing revelry. Popol Vuh sacrament toasting and touting that a new millennium is upon us harkening soporific dirges reminiscent of Third Ear Band meanderings. Pastiche electronic rumblings hover underneath the pagan liturgy of an unclothed feast. Diaphanous folkloric interludes assimilate peacefulness in a slow and shambling soft coma inducement on the senses. This is more than what is normally called music, it is an experience that is to be felt and almost seen it its multi-hued echoic sheen. Tenderly puffed female vocals are prefect to the ghostly moans from the masculine voicebox sector. Often in tandem, voices plait themselves surreptitiously over one another and gently fall on the shoulders, nestling into an unspeakable oblivion shawl.
