The New Sound of Numbers - Liberty Seeds
I had been searching for this entire album for quite some time now, and finally came across it about a week or so ago. I had heard three or four tracks, and knew they had connections to Circulatory System and the Elephant Six collective, so was anxious to hear the rest. It was released in October of last year, and is pretty much everything I had hoped it would be. Reminds me of the slightly awkward and out-of-tune but equally awesome sound of the late 60s/early 70s from bands like Silver Apple, Fifty Foot Hose, and Soft Machine. Don't mistake their looping rhythms for repetition, treat the vocals as simply another instrument, and prepare yourself for an aural acid trip.
