about

Titanic collaboration between Tokyo’s dark and drifting psychedelic geniuses Suishou No Fune and San Francisco’s tripping, free jamming guitar/drums duo Numinous Eye, lead by no other than Mason Jones, long-running Japanese psych specialist and formerly of space rockers Subarachnoid Space.

"Black Flowers Of The Forest In The Cosmos" is what I would call a perfect meeting. Do not expect a random afternoon jam here, but a late night, perfectly crafted mystical experience.

The drums and sometimes two of the three guitars of the line-up set the rhythmic foundation for the dream-like, fragile abyssal cries and distressing harmonica of Pirako, while gentle echoes and languid strings, spaced-out distortion and amp hums float around all corners slowly building a rich and tranced-out world of droney magic.

Not ever so gently – loud and distorted amp-frying blissful crescendos are capable, at times, of bursting the air –, but always so hypnotic, you will be transported beyond traditional time/space conventions into the jammy, semi-motorik “Space Cruising” goodbye track to finally touch the black flowers of the cosmos.

Stunningly mastered by James Plotkin, "Black Flowers Of The Forest In The Cosmos" is presented on a beautiful and totally handmade and handpainted – yes, piece by piece, each copy is unique – sturdy textured tip-on gatefold packaging with an art technique mixing natural collages and watercolor. Includes a printed OBI strip.

This edition is limited to 170 hand-numbered copies.

––> Also released as a handmade Boxset Edition limited to 80 copies. Exclusively available from our website: essence-music.com.
