DE KLEER, MARTIJN - SO CLOSE YET SO FAR OUT (CD)


"Digipack CD version of the critically acclaimed 2 X LP released last year. And yetter still, so wonderful. This inaugural solo jaunt by Legendary Pink Dots guitarist/bassist/violinist Martijn de Kleer betrays a love for freeform freakouts of the 60's, with a special emphasis on the mellow, acid drenched stylings of the West Coast underground of the late 60's. All the I's are microdotted and all the mushroom teas crossed as Martijn's guitar gently seeps, crawls, oozes, boils and burns. And even though Martijn's Dotted past is in some evidence, this is hardly an LPD Karaoke album. This is a fully fleshed out beast of original design. Martijn's vocals occasionally punctuate the parade, but the majority involves instrumental clusters, some based in rock form and others more like giant swelling clouds, all thick with psychedelia (acid rain?)."
