Raising Holy Sparks - Old Times & End Times tape (Sloow Tapes)

Another great tape by Sloow Tapes, this one is an Irish project headed by multi-instrumentalist David Collohan, and features among others Alison O'Donnell of the legendary 1960s-1970s folk band Mellow Candle. The tape presents predominantly dreamy psychedelic material close to floating kosmische music, mainly Popol Vuh, as well as modern-day masters like Natural Slow Buildings and Eternal Tapestry, as well as mournful acoustic folk numbers played on the guitar and accordion. Truly heartbreaking music for the cold sunrises of winter.
