Double Vision Quest & Broken Deer - Medicine Songs
Super nice, hypnotic collaboration from Double Vision Quest (Evan Cardwell) and long time favorite, Broken Deer (Lindsay Dobbin). Medicine Songs features two super-long jams; the first, "Jungle Jam Meditation," is steadied with a heavy, propulsive beat left swimming in the kind of ethereal mishmash that makes 2AM in the morning feel like 2AM in the morning. The second track is more vaporous, picking up slowly-but-shirley: Lindsay background-singing against a drowsy guitar and track evolving into that exhausted 3AM space, where everything's shot and you start hallucinating (guitars). Wonderful stuff that makes you feel simultaneously at ease and insane.
