“Guitar player from Ohio’s Puffy Areolas in his gnosis-thru-drone-overload solo project. A bit of kraut bass pops up in the first half courtesy of a pal named Bob, but 2nd half is one big cuddly pile of organ, pedals & vocals that gets cruddier & cruddier as it lifts off. Comes packaged in what I can only describe as a native american cloth pouch. Tracklisting: Tuareg Nosebleed, The Seven Sisters of Sleep.”
