Vastly eclectic oddball tropicalia, bossa jazz, blistering doomscapes and melancholy stoner rock from Lionmilk.
In DEPTHS OF MADNESS
Lionmilk traces vicissitudes of his restless mind,
with eleven hallucinations
gleefully detached from waking life.
Pursuing madness to its ends,
he builds sound to wrestle with tangled feelings and approach
infinities: the forever, the beyond, the blue.
He operates on the basis of unreason;
and forms incantations to conjure the soul from the body.
With a vastly eclectic musical vernacular,
he combines elements of oddball tropicalia, bossa jazz,
blistering doomscapes and melancholy stoner rock, to name a few.
Vacillating between extremes,
we can discern a mind caught between
the hope for recovery and
the fear that it might never know a moment’s repose.
Take the dip and reemerge in a heightened state of consciousness.
This is a work that is euphoric, uncanny, brilliant and intense.
