価格: 2,937円 (税込)
Label: Akuphone - AKULP1023

1950年代初頭から80年代後半までの珍しいグローバルポップ及びフォークミュージックに焦点を当てたリリースを行うフランスAkuphoneの2020年作。2013年頃からリリースを開始、現在までほぼカセットフォーマットにて10タイトル以上のリリースをしてきた、奇妙な出で立ちてパフォーマンスを行う謎多き実験サイケデリックフォーク・プロジェクトAk'chamel, The Giver Of Illness。トラックの一部をテキサス州にある砂漠のゴーストタウンで録音、また墓地でのフィールドレコーディングなど、ただならぬ怪しい雰囲気満載の楽曲が並び、民族音楽?、ダークアンビエント?、フォークミュージック?と、何処にも着地しない感じがとにかく素晴らしい。ダウンロードコード付き。







First vinyl release of Ak'chamel after a prolific cassette discography, The Totemist marks a new direction for the mysterious group. Equipped with studio quality recordings and a (somewhat) lighter tone, opposed to the oppressively lo-fi sound the group is known for.

This is a deep psychedelic-folk album with hints of mysticism, some of which was written and recorded in a ghost-town in the Chihuahuan Desert in far West Texas - a place where the dead outnumber the living. Various overdubs and field recordings were captured in the historic Terlingua cemetery : an ancient burial ground filled with small grottoes and graves made of sticks and stones. This being the final resting place for miners who succumbed from illnesses derived from the toxic rare-earth element known as mercury.

Ak’chamel, The Giver of Illness are fourth world post-colonial cultural cannibalists circumcising the foreskin of enlightenment. Performing in homemade costumes and masks, they have played festivals in various cities around the U.S gaining international attention from Vice, The Wire, Tiny Mix Tapes, Consequence of Sound, and many more. Enter the fourth world now !
