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.

    Track 6 is named for Samhain (/ˈsɑːwɪn, ˈsaʊɪn/; Irish: [ˈsˠəuɪnʲ] Scottish Gaelic: [ˈs̪ãũ.ɪɲ]) - a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season and beginning of winter or "darker half" of the year... when the ancient burial mounds were open, which were seen as portals to the Otherworld.
