The Amorphous Androgynous-The Peppermint Tree (2008)

"Imagine the sounds you get if your cross-bred Syd-era Floyd with Faust. Imagine that warlock mongrel
was then produced by Can. The resulting record would like The Amorphous Androgynous. Who? Well, to be honest, that First line pitch should be enough to have you scurrying to wherever you scurry when someone gives you a tip-off... I mean, this band sound like that noisy bit in Sister Ray. They're ace. Whatever. Okay, okay, these cats are an offshoot of psychedelic analogue munchers the Future Sound of London who just so happened to be the soundtrack to many a failed sexual exploit on my part as some girl thought she'd stick on the ambient music for summa that lovin' spoons and I ended up foaming at the mouth over 'The Far Out Son Of Lung'... "Check this bit out... y'know it sounds just as good if you play it at the wrong speed on the single?" Anyway, Amorphous Androgynous have a new cut for you to buy, and listening to the razor blade tape edit of the whole album (which you can see with a head frying animation overleaf), it sounds like... well... read that first line again. It's called 'Peppermint Tree and Seeds' and you can buy it by clicking here. If you like the funky synth bits of an Amon Dull II track or funky sitar, then this album is definitely gotta make it into your rack"

Very cool psychedelic tunes. I hear some Flaming Lips in their too. Go I say!

Tree climbing anyone?
