Hairy psychedelia and shoegaze, the streaming motorik repetition of Krautrock and early electronica, highlife, Afrobeat and its pop derivates and classic West End and SalSoul-era disco have all left their deep mark and find their way into Oracles, one way or another. This is a six-track EP/mini-album, pressed on 180 gram vinyl with a CD insert plus an mp3 coupon. Opener "Untitled" sets the mood for what might be envisioned as their first message from a self-sufficient sphere -- a fertile place where Oracles reap the seeds of shoegaze, psychedelia, kosmische musik, highlife and Afrobeat ? chronicling search ("Gazing from Without"), loss ("Parting Ways"), desire ("Melt Tonight"), trips ("Journey Back to Dawn"), head-starts and dreams ("Untitled") in the process.
