Strictly limited edition - includes a bonus cassette album 'Eaglevision'** Brother Raven's Jamie Potter and Jason E. Anderson explore their multitude of vintage analog synthesizers and keyboards with a blissful transmission for Belgium's Aguirre Records. It's their second vinyl offering in almost as many months, following the cosmic experience of 'VSS-30' with a more pastoral, tropically breezy drift of washed-out tones and chirruping mechanical organisms. 'Diving Into The Pineapple Portal' occupies most of the first side with an untethered strafe across bloopy analogue textures and Escher-esque synth spirals buffeted by ferric drafts until they float like spores in an artificial paradise. This definitely has all the hallmarks of vintage Kosmische, but the duo pull it off with that essentially sly touch that clearly avoids becoming mere cliche and operates more as a sort of mystical confession. 'Speaking Whale From My Canoe' opens the other side with an altered sense of shape and space, changing the tonal palette to glassier, more resonant sounds reminiscent of mid-70s Harmonia and Eno with an undercurrent of very softly burred bass rhythm, while 'Happy Astronaut' is happy to lie back and blow bubbles while looking at the moon. For us however, the biggest treat is the accompanying cassette, featuring a blend of more rhythm based experimentation and defined melodic structures while maintaining the potently woozy, unresolved effect of the vinyl. Nearly 1.5 hours worth of ready-made synth dreams in total, snap it up while you can.
