The psychedelic explorations of Swahili are the perfect salve for the mid week malaise (I’m not the only one who suffers with that, I hope…).

And it mixes nicely with the skittish energy of Sun Angle and the agitpop of Aan.
In case you were unaware, Dewey Mahood has left the Eternal Tapestry fold after 10+ years of unleashing torrents of psych beauty with them. The good news about his departure is that he can concentrate his efforts even further on his work as Plankton Wat, which from the sounds of his upcoming album Drifter’s Temple (out in September on Thrill Jockey) means a deep dive into the world of American Primitive acoustic fingerpicking and smears of electric guitar joy.
