Ethereal Psychedelic. It started as a way of describing our ‘micro-genre’ and ended up becoming the perfect name for our second album (and follow-up to ‘The Long Now’). Born of the same organic, improvisational process as its predecessor, the interplay of two musicians once again conjures a strange and intoxicating soundscape – at times delicate, intimate and bittersweet, at others expansive, oceanic, cosmic… This is a new kind of ambient music, open and adventurous, and needed a new name. With track names drawn from 19th- and early 20th-century American poetry (from Dickinson to Whitman, with some more obscure voices in the mix as well), Ethereal Psychedelic is a kind of homage to the lush, evocative imagery and earnest sensibility of a time when feeling deeply – and expressing those feelings passionately – was considered a virtue, not a failing.

    "Waawaate" Original Music & Video by Owl Cave Dreams.
    Inspired by Ojibwe traditions that tell of when we leave this earth, we will dance through the doorway to the next world in spirit form. Our spirit will find those of our ancestors, and we will rejoice and dance in the sky. The people of the world will see the dancing in the sky and call it Waawaate, the Northern Lights.
    We are a Canadian and Scottish duo. I think the lights are in our hearts.
    Have you seen them? Heard them? What's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen in the sky? Our Linktree (bio) this week includes an Aurora forecast link.
