Over 3 years in the making, at last the Djin Aquarian and Plastic Crimewave Sound Save The World LP is ready to be unleashed on this troubled planet. Djin Aquarian (Yahowha 13) joins Plastic Crimewave Sound in an epic psych Crusade!

############################################################################

Since their earlier collaboration, released on cassette by Plustapes and now sold out, I’ve been waiting for the full-length album from former Ya Ho Wa 13 guitarist Djin Aquarian and Chicago’s  Steven “Sir Plastic Crimewave” Krakow, and it’s even better than the high expectations I had for it. Aquarian is a key figure in the history of psychedelia, pioneering the higher-key “tribal psych” sound with the early 70’s recordings and performances of the Ya Ho Wa family, a raw organic music that had its roots in spiritual practice and in ritual. You can’t fake or pre-plan this kind of music. You have to get into that zone, that sacred space, and explore. It grows, slowly, it evolves, it sinks roots and extends its branches, it pulls you in and gets all over you until you are one with the music. In some ways, this is the purest kind of psychedelic music, and it’s great to say that this new album has the same dense organic tribal sound one would want from such a collaboration. Plastic Crimewave Sound are the perfect partners for Mr. Aquarian and totally “get” what the “higherkey” experience is about. If this kind of precious and rich psychedelia is what you desire, dip into SAVE THE WORLD. I hope it’s not yet sold out…if the label is out, check dealers. It’s worth finding!!! –Kendra Steiner Editions

BEST OF 2012

Save the World, the duo of Djin Aquarian and Plastic Crimewave Sound on Prophase, is representative of the reason i love music.  Prior to picking this up on a whim from the mighty Ed Eclipse, I had no prior experience listening to Djin’s projects, and I had heard only a few things from Plastic Crimewave Sound and Hands of Hydra.  Rather, i relied on a nicely composed description in Ed’s regular e-mail update – no sound clips either.  When one is willing to take a chance and submit themselves to new experiences, beautiful things enter your life.  Unequivocally, this is one of the best psych rock records of the year. holy kief!

As soon as the needle dropped, i was hooked. Save the Worldpresents mindful, expansive psych that is a celebration of the breath, awareness and sound.  Over two sides of wax, these masters of psych promulgate lucid zoners of the next-level variety.  ‘Ascend, Ascending, Ascension’ drips with spirituality as Djin’s vocals – backed by the band – lift one from the malaise of the day.  Track 2, ‘Ride My Merkabah’ is one of the jams of the year. Mystical, howling guitars, bass and percussion create a cosmic groove, over which Djin briefly sings.  The track slows down, keeping a nice beat, then gradually ascends through the haze, which is signified by the pounding percussion and heavy guitars; and then Djin praises the breath – the mighty breath.  When listening to this lp, I think about breathing and awareness.  The sounds that these guys emit from their equipment is so heavy that having other stimuli present – books, computer, etc.. – while listening is counterproductive.

Restrained desert vibes – in the vein of Barn Owl – commence the flipside.  Things change quickly as chugging guitars, bass and percussion progressively become louder as Djin’s voice covers the expanse.  ‘Dinosaur Revisited’ has a kraut feel that gradually locks into a nice groove – one of the best jams of the five extended tracks.  This track, much like the others, is evidence of the kinship between the musicians. ‘Ethereal Pastures’, is the last track of the lp and it’s time to reload the bong.  The track features spacey, sprawling guitars, bass and percussion punctuated by heavy guitar interludes.

Keeping with the aura of the blog, Save the World has the nug luvin jams that will regulate your temperature in the high heat of summer.  Everything was captured live, save for the sitar parts, which were added by Hands of Hydra.   Besides some of the heaviest jams of the year, the lp also has some of the nicest artwork of 2012, created by Plastic Crimewave.  Housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve and limited to 500 lps on Gold and Blue vinyl, buy these heavy jams from Eclipse.  Also, the lp is available from Prophase.  I recommend reading the Prophase description for more background information.  No soundclips, but sometimes you have to trust the smokehound.  i will not lead you awry.

peace to you, friends 🙂
