Roj - The Transactional Dharma Of Roj

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.
