    THE HOST - ESALEN LECTURES (LP + DL Code)
    Touch Sensitive Records | TSR003

    £10 + PP

    Inspired by think tanks and floatation tanks, psychological research, 2012 mythology, 1960's social planning, stoned apes, elite transhumanism, and the counter-culture, the Esalen Lectures is an imaginary trip to a NorCal psychedelic retreat. Use the sounds to enter into a program of theory and practice, to accompany inward voyages, and for sunset induction rituals. And when the coloured dust settles, and the weird dreams have eased off, maybe your neural re- programming has just started?

    Drawing from a wide source of tranced-out musical legacies, the Esalen Lectures is pitched somewhere between Ash Ra Tempel and Steve Hillage at their most freeform, and more underground New Age artists like JD Emmanuel and Ariel Kalma. Using sweeping synthesizer patterns and subtle field recordings to create dramatic arcs across the record, spiralling guitar squalls meet blissed-out, motionless womb lullabies and digitally-enhanced nocturnes to tell a weird story of induction, hypnosis and psychic disturbance.

about

Touch Sensitive Belfast, UK

TS is a record label with a distinctive pan-genre path taking in David Holmes tense soundtrack for '71', Cherrystones’ comp of splintered post-punk and new wave, Barry Lynn / The Host’s ambient, new-age trips, Documenta’s sweet, cosmic drone-pop, the rediscovery of Maya’s heavy, fried psychedelia, Gross Net's brutal cold-wave and Group Zero's 'analogue wave riders'
