Out of stock

Wah Wah Wino​'s Davy Kehoe, Morgan Buckley and Olmo are joined by avant legend Roger Doyle, among others, on a delectably brilliant, 54 minute collage teased together over the past 3 years. Dont miss this!!!!

An ode to the putative pleasures of ketamine, ‘KWALK’ emulates the effect of everyone’s fave equine dissociative with a mazy disarray of folk rock, ambient electronics and balmy, bandy-legged grooves bent for getting ketty with it. Inside, song structures quiesce to smeared samples and fractal lines of thought perhaps familiar to anyone who’s done a bump or two.

Normal logic is out of the window and replaced by a naturally unpretentious, experimental slant that palpably reflects its subject and is a real pleasure to follow. In their slippery snakes ’n ladders chicanery and patchwork craft, ‘KWALK’ recalls everything from Davy Kehoe's endlessly-rinsed 'Storm Desmond' to the Lost Highway OST, The KLF’s Chill Out album to Sigtryggur Berg Sigmarsson & BJ NIlsen’s ‘Avantgardegasse’ ace thru to Don Cherry’s communal free jazz jams and Laura Cannell’s folk flights in our minds, and should be considered a go-to slab for those times when the sofa’s on the ceiling and everyone’s too munted to pick another tune.

We have a special place in our hearts for mixtapes/collage pieces pressed to vinyl - and this one is prob the best we've heard since John T. Gast's incredible 'Invocations II' set for Blowing Up The Workshop a few years back. A proper contemporary iteration of making music to take drugs to? No brainer, innit.
