(LP only, 2013)

released on Pome Pome Tones --

"Edition of only 200 copies LP from this Finnish free/rock commune: a welcome return for this Finnish behemoth after a prolonged period of silence. Salon des Amateurs presents a set of extended jams that combine the fractured logic of the Faust Tapes with heavy, bass-driven dirges and Silence/Ohr/Pilz-style psychedelic punk strategies. Everything is nailed into place by the nod-out rhythm section, providing an anchor for some way out orbits of electronics, guitar, communal percussion and hypnotic sleight of hand that could almost pass for goddamn Siloah outtakes." (Volcanic Tongue)
