    HEAD OF WANTASTIQUET (Berlin) is Paul LaBrecque’s (Sunburned Hand of the Man, Astral Blessing) solo shaman body melt unit. The music is a thoroughly Modern/NOW take on the early minimalist experiments of John Cale’s Sun Blindness tapes, projected through a prism that refracts into hallucinatory images of Andrew Wyeth and Caspar Friedrich, the temporal finality of Altamont and Kenneth Anger, the bare feet grounded to the soil of Träd Gräs och Stenar, and the beautiful desolation of Doc Boggs’ early 20th century Appalachian hollers.

    DIRE WOLVES (San Francisco) were manifested in 2008 by Jeffrey Alexander (Black Forest/Black Sea, Jackie-O Motherfucker, The Iditarod) to explore the thick freerock krausen borne of a deep history of electronic folk experimentation. Joined by travelers from Fever Witch, Caroliner and Faun Fables, The Dire Wolves Absolutely Perfect Brothers Band brew an overblown kosmische folk improv, "splicing the DNA of MV & EE, Pharoah Sanders and Sonic Youth, honing in on the heavy kraut psych of early 70s Amon Duul II, in a way that neatly bridges the gap between Burnt Hills' profound freeform primitivism and Desmadrados Soldados de Ventura's enlightened groove-locked chaos" (Psi Lab).
