Shit and Shine want to mess with your mind “54-Synth-Brass 38 Metal Guitar 65 Cathedral” at a time

Craig Clouse is many things, and one of those things is a man with a dream. Specifically: a dream to repeatedly offend the boundaries of taste, logic, and definition.

Fun in the Kunduz: This laid-back soundtrack, laid-back like Lateef’s Eastern Sounds, is centered around the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Maybe the liner notes would help align the sounds with the historical context / concept, but “KUNDUZ,” as a stand-alone piece, is giving off nothing but good and weird vibrations rich with vitamin D.

Cerberus: Mind Over Mirrors - The Voice Calling

By Jspicer on Jan 27 2015 The Voice Calling lives up to its title: though it’s far more duplicitous than at first listen.
