The Man From Atlantis Creates A New Atmosphere
The new double single from The Man From Atlantis is an absolutely huge soundscape of acoustic drone singer songwriter that swells and sways as it morphs and changes into an array of sounds, fuzztones, and psychedelia.
"The Morning Is Broken" is a somewhat emotional and intense 17 minute opus that peels its layers back with each passing minute and creates a completely different world of colors and vibrations.
Things turn into a driving rhythm coated in distortion and feedback and after time slowly drifts back to an acoustic guitar melody and slide guitars overlapping but only after you've been through the trip.
This song is a trip and feels massive and vibrant along with it's slightly aggressive and haunting undertone.
The second track (Side -B) is longer than the first and boasts some of the same feels and vibes but has a more cinematic and ambient tonality to it.
Like crossing a desert on foot with no water in sight. The feeling of a long trek and with a sun beating down on you takes over as you swim through the song's many sounds alterations.
Things get sludgy and open, freeing and damning at the same time as the sounds surround you.
This track is called "Bad Trip and Burning Ghat" and the title is appropriate indeed.
There is a lot to drink in with these two tracks as combined they cover nearly 40 minutes. But damn is it a journey to take.
You can feel the emotion and struggle behind the song's scattering feel.
This is a record to really take your time with and if you listen all the way, you can appreciate it's drive and atmosphere.
