2012 is the year of Sylvester Anfang ii. My mind is still spinning from the stoney jams on the Southern Latitudes lp. No time for a respite, however, as it is time to pay obeisance to the Great Pop Supplement (GPS).
Sylvester Anfang II – ‘Perzische Tabijten’ LP
Promised last year and now finally ready to land, The GPS is proud to unleash the epic new full length from legendary Flemish kraut / psych jam masters Sylvester Anfang II. “Perzische Tabijten” (“Persian Rugs”) features 6 super heavy, densely extended jams, deliciously tribal, quasi religious, utterly whacked out pieces that eternally build and pound at the senses. High on lush drones, pounding shamanic rhythms and eastern tinged instrumentation with flittering moogs adding to the “middle of the woods” textures throughout… Recorded on an old farm in Sint-Pauwels (between Gent and Antwerp), in one take with no overdubs, the band strived for a more Eastern vibe and approach than previous releases, which partially explains the album’s title. Following several sold out releases across a number of great labels (Eclipse, K-RAA-K, Aurora Borealis, Blackest Rainbow and under their own “Funeral Folk” imprint) the LP isn’t expected to hang around long. Everything previously from both artist and label is sold out so expect the same here… Beautiful pro-printed psych sleeves in an edition of 500 only.
Also, the new Sicsic split from Bear Bones, Lay Low and Hellvete is available from Discriminate. Already sold out at the source, don't expect this tape to stick around.
