Shpongle 'Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland' 3xLP
The 4th instalment of the journey into the weird and wonderful worlds of Shpongle arrived with Ineffable Mysteries from Shpongleland in 2009 and now, 11 years on from its initial release, the masterful craftsmanship of Simon Posford and Raja Ram is still self-evident in every single one of the 8 glorious tracks.
Deepening ever further into the fusion of worlds, this album sees us journey through manifold aspects of the creative genius that is Shpongle, utilising an admirable array of awesome acoustic instrumentation including naturally, Raja’s legendary dulcet flute tones to compliment the myriad of music featuring Simon’s surreal synthesis.
This sonic fusion and fission theme re-presents itself throughout the album, in one legendary composition the listener is treated to the dreamy tones of the Hang Drum seamlessly blended with detailed glitch electronica to create a sensuous web of emotional ecstasy. In another piece, we experience incredible acoustic guitar solos rippling though interwoven psychedelic glitch and dub distortions in time and space. Simon’s and Raja’s trademark psychedelic and bizarre blending of elements is bedazzling in its beauty and unparalleled in the depths of its dimensional exploration.
