Acid Mothers Temple - Wake To a New Dawn of Another Astro Era - CD/LP
With the departure of long time bass/drum duo Shimura Koji and Tsuyama Atsushi, AMT now have a new rhythm section featuring two young Japanese musicians, Satoshima Nani on drums and S/T on bass. Thus, Wake To a New Dawn of Another Astro Era is the first record in the second chapter of this legendary Japanese psychedelic rock group.
Wake To a New Dawn of Another Astro Era finds a rejuvenated Makoto Kawabata encompassing the best of what AMT has come to mean in the last 21 years. Deep ambient synth passages fade into deftly composed anthemic jams worthy of crowd favorite status like La Novia and Pink Lady Lemonade. Makoto's guitar prowess reaches unfathomed apexes in epic crescendos while the new rhythm section holds down heavy Kraut-influenced repetition. Straddling the line between composition and improvisation, this is a legendary AMT record for sure.
The double LP is pressed in an edition of 1000 - 200 pink, 200 blue - and features light show artwork by LiquidbiupiL.
