Gotta hand it to Thrill Jockey, they've mined the best of the heavy instrumental psych crop and this first solo outing from The Heads' Simon Price is on par with some of their best. Haven't heard much from those English psych wizards of late but it seems that Price has hit the bedroom and laid down some high Sahara inspired instrumental epics. The inspiration for the venture is rooted in his childhood spent in Africa, and though this is a long way from Soweto dance breakdowns that usually seep into any band's "African" record, its easy to see how the sweeping, droning pieces could balance the majesty of a crystal clear sky and the shaking dread of what's lurking in the tall grass.
