Quote from label: "contains 11 nighttime tracks brimming with rhythmic switchbacks and momentum swings that push darkness into strange and intriguing corners. The record replaces ANO's riotous rollicking with shadowy landscapes of grim sound that encapsulate the band's eccentricity. From the psych-rich shake of "Turn on Your Mind" and "Human Toad" to the death-ride kick of "Up to the Sky" and "Crystal Man" through to the twisted take on the 13th Floor Elevators' "Roller Coaster", AQUA NEBULA OSCILLATOR's Spiritus Mundi plays like a haunting dream of dark and disturbing things, offering a can't-miss masterclass on the emotional possibilities of sound."
Quote from label: "AAM's Vow opens yet another chapter for this Brooklyn-based quartet, breaking new ground both sonically and progressively through the exploration of the realm of psychedelia. Dark melodic tones, vocal harmonies and heavy synthesizer presence accompany the listener in the shift towards NAAM's new-found astral plane. As deep, doom-ridden tones and tribal drums accompany the acid-casualty grooves and freakouts of NAAM past, NAAM future presents not only a more progressive and developed concept through music, but also through the concept of spirituality. NAAM's musical and lyrical evolution into darker territory once again focuses on the sacrament – this time through the rites of sexuality, the devotion towards hedonism and the mortification of desire. As the band's past concepts have dealt with higher powers, unknown beings and mysticism, Vow draws from a more personal, Id-driven nature, focusing on the animal/human duality within."
Quote from label: "There are very few bands in the known universe that can draw upon such varied influences as The Stooges, Hawkwind and Can, but NAAM certainly fits the bill. With The Ballad of the Starchild, NAAM creates spacey, spacious, garage-bluesy kraut-psych with an epic scope and altered state intergalactic musings about time, space and the future. A vintage-sounding offering that manages to include elements of trance rock, acid-blues and psychedelic star-gazing, The Ballad of the Starchild is the perfect accompaniment for "exploring inner space and imagining outer space." Over the course of the EP's 25 minutes of brain damage, NAAM aim to hold infinity in the palm of their hand, and eternity in a half hour. The sonic equivalent of a sheet of blotter LSD layered over hypnotically rhythmic bass lines, The Ballad of the Starchild is a far-out journey where riffs fall from the sky and float off to planets yet undiscovered by science!"
