*2023 stock. 300 copies lmited release* With over 150 releases under their belt, Tolin Asumer is their first proper US release in almost 20 years. Recorded in Buenos Aires in 2018-2019, and then mixed in 2021, the record opens with Coliso Atomro, an echo-drenched Can-esque excursion into the other-world, with Tomasin taking the role of travel-guide. The use of a bouncing stereo echo-effect mesmerized the listener into a chaotic rock head-nod. The 2nd half of side A features the track Etrol Rene 5043, and its use of a meandering organ lead as bait, bring the user to the land of heavy-psych guitars, with drums driving in a motorik style for nearly 9 minutes, until settling back down into a swirly haze.
Side B starts with Manorla Acuplemo, a bite-size mid-tempo, almost blues, jammer, featuring Miguel's classic vocals-as-instrument style, and heavy tremolo-laiden guitar. The remainder of the side is a track called Ronero Manila Dus, which starts as a Middle-eastern inspired psych piece, building for nearly 8 minutes with its resonating and buzzing strings and low-end drone, and then slowly turning into a free-noise guitar/drums masterpiece, with the original drone weaving itself in and out.
