Prince Rama - Shadow Temple

Paw Tracks, 2010

Normally bands which look like this (Indian Jewelry, Pocahaunted) get on my nerves. But somehow these crystal clutching weirdo youths stumbled upon a crazy awesome sound. It's like a Hindu-mantra-themed minimal synth Master Musicians of Bukkake, with Gang Gang Dance/ subverted Lisa Gerrard vocals. Mantras and Vaishnava holy music given the intensity of the American psych underground, drummed ad infinitum to the sound of lightning and kraut-synth flourishes.
