Dustin Wong. Infinite Love (thrill jockey, 2012)
"This journey or musical process is increasingly being lost in the digital era, where often the focus is on tracks or collections of tracks. To highlight that journey, Infinite Love is presented as a double album, each with the same opening and different paths to the final codas. It is the listener’s choice which path to take. Dustin puts it thus, "In Infinite Love the listener gets two choices." Thrill Jockey

The Juniper Meadows. A Forest of Lights (mymwly, 2005)
"Like walking through fields in summer, or lying beneath the stars on a clear night. Each track has a different approach, differing in both instrumentation and mood. To illustrate, I'll describe my favourite tracks. "Morning Mist and Fog" is based solely on a gentle melodica melody, but it is both honest and touching in its rural atmosphere. "Alchemists in the Snow" is based on one dominating theme on banjo and oud. "The Winter Cistern" has a darker, lower sound to it, and is again very different from the other tracks." Evening of Light

Larkin Grimm. Moons of June (self released, 2015)
Parplar Vol. 2???? simplemente espectacular regreso de uno de los pilares del space-folk. Efectivamente tracks grabados durante las sesiones de aquel maravilloso album en 2008, y a pesar del paso de los años estas canciones se escuchan tan actuales como si fuera una sesión completamente en vivo.
"These were the songs I was writing during the Parplar Era, when I was traveling constantly and living in a tent or in my car or sleepig on couches. As a result they were all recorded outside of a studio environment and you can hear the birds and the insects and frogs and helicopters in the recordings if you listen carefully. I was happy to live outside for a couple of years and it was a beautiful, spiritual, productive time musically. These are songs about my anarchist friends, my wild and dirty lovers, hippies who took care of me when I was sick and earth mamas who fed me. Oh yeah, and Wizards. Real wizards and shamans I met who tripped me out hard and taught me that MAGIC IS REAL." Larkin Grimm

Shamans From Space. Shamans from Space in the Land of the Master Goat (self released, 2013)
Shamans From Space no es solo un colectivo, es en realidad un estilo de vida (al menos por un tiempo) dirigido por Javi, Shamans se internan en los bosques de Mallorca para poder formar parte de él mientras tocan en vivo.
"Recorded in an ancient "Magick Circle" made of stone near the top of the mountain the 14 of september of 2013. During the performance, a big male goat appeared and stood still in front of us."

Million Brazilians. New Ideas in Psychic Music Vol. II (sonic meditations, 2011)
"Million Brazilians are no strangers to Kansas City as half of them used to live here and now reside in Portland, Oregon where there is no shortage of free thinking and experimental music inspired by nature and the environment it's self. "Sexual Desert" is a continuation in their "New Ideas for Psychic Music" series, this being a conceptual journey through the desert sweating out sexual vibrations by way of free improvisation. The music will no doubt lift you to the inner hallucinations of tribal squandering and frantic ritual out-of-body experiences if you let it. Recorded last year in Kansas City while on their US tour by Ashley Miller."
