Roj - The Transactional Dharma Of
As Broadcastís original keyboardist,
Roj Stevens picked up a thing or two about weird audio, and
this solo release transforms vintage meditational Library
Music into an aural Wonderland of mysterious Germanic
voices, glinting ambience and atavistic rhythm science.
"Yellow Peel" and "Go Without Me" throb with Hare Krishna
hand-drums and hypnotic tom-tom pressure, soaked in the
washing-machine reverb of early concrete music. "A Beginning
Word" even displays Suicide-al tendencies. This "hauntological"
sound is something you either buy into or reject wholesale,
but Rojís psychic journey is among the most listenable
examples so far.
