The last Sound of Cobra release that showed up here was an excellently unheralded 12" by Expo '70, a one-sided slice of drone and psych that put us onto the label's rich catalog. In similar form the Berlin based label brings a new offering from Dewey Mahood's Plankton Wat. Acting as a rather perfect follow up to his Thrill Jockey album from last year the 12" is a fiery bit of instrumental psych that brings to mind his work with Eternal Tapestry, though somehow much more personal in scope. A familiar stew of fried string psychedelia, folk tumble and meditative drone, the EP is Mahood at his best, urging the sun down through the clouds and over the distant range in a slowly melting mass of orange. Highlights are the bookends "Pastoral Rejoice" and "Lone Pines," both of which see Mahood adding some hard plucked acoustic touches to his usually ozone soaked guitar leads.
