HERBCRAFT

THE ASTRAL BODY ELECTRIC

WOODSIST


Format: LP
Cata No: WOODSIST066
Barcode: N/A
Three years on from the initial Herbcraft blurt, The Astral Body Electric sees the sonic seeds sown in previous wax transmissions blossom in full. Once the isolationist bedroom-psych project of Matt Lajoie, Herbcraft has in recent years sprawled out in many different fullband incarnations-duo, trio, quartet, sextet-for tours and heady super-sessions at their HQ in Maine. Their third album finds the most enduring lineup of the band at its peak: songs half-composed, halfimprovised, and played with freewheeling first-take intensity. Recorded direct to tape by Doug Tuttle (Mmoss) in an 18th-century New England barn, The Astral Body Electric captures the Herbcraft soundworld in its most-natural habitat by focusing on analog recording techniques (spring reverb, tape delay, hands-on flange). Lajoie's unhinged electric guitar swirls around Dawn Aquarius's wah'ed organ riffs, Nicholas Barker's kosmische-inspired drums and synth, and Corinna Marshall's trilled-out flute and circular bass, complete with nebulous group vocals and auxiliary support from Doug and Aaron Neveu (Woods). "Aurally massaged" into the 4th dimension by Matt "MV" Valentine via his signature "Spectrasound" mastering technique, The Astral Body Electric is psychedelic, mantric, freerock
