Seventh LP -- and part two of a two-part set -- from Manchester, UK-based free rock floatation unit DSDV. The band accepted an invitation by Burnt Hills' guitarist Parashi to hole up in his Clifton Park, NY, basement and make a record in April 2015, and Parashi sat in with his bandmate Rambutan to wail with the guys. The first jam of the night up had turned out so well that back down they went, this time falling quickly into a rhythmic trance that dallied and then collapsed into free rock Helheim. Drones, counter-rhythms, shifts into major pentatonic Allman Brothers-isms, and spitting, all-out Mahavishnic curses and hexes make this the band's most erratic statement of unswerving cacaphonic intent. Mixed and mastered by Bojanic Audio & Mastering, Manchester, UK. Dave Birchall: guitar; Andrew Cheetham: drums; Dylan Hughes: guitar; Nick Mitchell: guitar; Parashi: guitar; Rambutan: guitar; Edwin Stevens: guitar; Otto Willberg: bass. Features unique artwork combinations by John Moloney with every copy -- no two alike. 140-gram vinyl. Edition of 250. "Absolutely essential two volume collection with crazy Heitkotter esque artwork courtesy of Sunburned Hand's John Moloney -- both references work sonically as well -- DSDV are one of the preeminent 'free rock' bands out there, cutting edge, tip of the spear, reconciling out-there free jazz -- maybe think Coltrane's Ascension -- with pummeling heavy psych straddling Bardo Pond and The Stooges -- the drummer and bassist maintain an in-and-out telepathic groove while six freaked out guitarists cut loose like almost nothin you've ever heard, a semi improvised yet well considered exposition of riffs -- my god, it's full of riffs -- prepare yourself for a hundred minute hurricane of mind-blowing finger-blistering bliss." --Psi Lab
