The Wooden Cupboard - Animals Speak The Spirit Tongue
Label: 267 Lattajjaa
nothing i say can really prepare you for this record, though i shall say it blew my mind upon first listen. something totally primal and boundless is tapped into, certainly feeling more animal than human. once you give yourself over fully, it becomes a truly ecstatic, potentially mind-altering experience.
"Carrying forward ever deeper into the experimental we come to the pineal gland ripping music of The Wooden Cupboard on 'Animals Speak The Spirit Tongue'. Almost beyond music into a howl at the nightsky, the music wolves would make. From the worryingly quiet chimes to the terrifyingly intense calls, this unbroken music comes together into surges of crescendo. This is the sound of nature rebelling, calling out to their ancestors to reclaim the ground. Animal calls to the moon that put a chill in the heart of every person walking back home across the fields." - Lord of Misrule, Unbroken Circle
