Wide Latitudes

Quite a few interesting releases recently from the Latitudes series, bringers of Grails' Interpretations of Three Psychedelic Rock Songs from Around the World EP (2005). And also of 2010's Sky Burial drone EP by Nadja (co-#4 Drone/Ambient and #16 Metalloid, 2009).

Elogia De La Sombra
First up, not sure how I missed this one from Pac-NW mystic collective Master Musicians of Bukkake (#11 of 2009, #37 of 2010)...

"Elogia De La Sombra" from Elogia De La Sombra (2010)

The title track charges up that good ol' motorik buzz. And there's also a more typically ersatz-Eastern A-side: "Tainted Phenomena."

Sylvester Anfang II - Jam 3 by Southern

From Belgium keeps coming Sylvester Anfang II (#9 Drone/Ambient of 2009, #22 Overall of 2010). I guess this one is self-titled (2012), and comprises five live jam rituals. Such as "Jam 1," "Jam 4," and finally "Jam 5."

And these last two groups were featured in my Aurora Borealis FB posts.

Grumbling Fur - Solar Nights & Rainwater by Southern

Grumbling Fur manifests here as a duo - with members from AEthenor (#7 of 2006, #16 of 2009, & #13 of 2011) and Guapo (#2, 2006) - to release the 3-song Alice (2012).

If further interested, there's an mp3-sample of "Wylderness Waiting" streamed over at Aquarius Records. More singing from Daniel O'Sullivan, as with Miracle (co-#5 of 2011, with Zombi's).

p.s. Someone finally posted Miracle's B-side cover of BÖC's "Veteran of the Psychic Wars!"

Haxan Cloak - The Men Parted The Sea To Devour The Water (excerpt) by Southern

The Haxan Cloak are still new on my radar, but I went ahead and ordered it anyway! That excerpt is from the single 27-minute track for this release.

Check out the whole thing! Someone also put up their entire 2011 self-titled full length - I'll have to check that out as well...
