Following his (sporadically ongoing) work with Sunburned Hand Of The Man, the incredible soul-whisper of the Trees, Chants And Hollers LP he cut for Eclipse, and the equally-tit-like Astral Blessings LP on Mad Monk, Paul Labrecque (of Belgium) dispensed this solo LP. Recorded in June 2007, it layers banjos, guitars, vocals and smoke as though they were shimmering veins of black pearls, pulsing against the scarlet dawn. Labrecque manages to take a conceptual precept as dark as life itself, and invest it with an inner glow that churns our own black hearts like butter. An amazing slab of massive, subtly-wrought psychedelia played in the highest key imaginable. Long thought out-of-print, this lone box was recently discovered in the shadows. Move over George Stavis, and tell Billy Faier the news.
