"Recorded under harsh conditions with a dark-cloud backdrop of freezing temperatures, car wrecks, personal strife, illness and even bullet crossfire, at last this 2LP paranoid song cycle from Plastic Crimewave Sound is upon us. A space-punk epic of formation and devastation, it travels from the devotional light of 'the beginning' to the virus of technology and even darker future urban hells. This is PCWS's second long-awaited LP, a limited edition double LP housed in a beautiful, sturdy gatefold sleeve. All but the cosmic kitchen sink were thrown into this one; harp, bells, sitar, washboard, shrieking harpies, oodles of fuzz, an entire string section, doomed spoken passages, and cameo appearances by Michael Yonkers, Devendra Banhart, Josephine Foster, Fursaxa, Spires that in the Sunset Rise, Chris Connelly, and more. Sure, PCWS can't hide influences like Pink Fairies, Can, German Oak, the Monks, Silver Apples, Simply Saucer, Hawkwind, Loop, Factory records, Trad Gras Och Stenar and even a splash of blissed folk strains, but who'd want to?"
