Editorial Reviews

Trust Now is the keystone album of Brooklyn's Prince Rama. The album takes the kaleidoscopic mysticism of ancient devotional music and focuses it through the fierce urgency and archetypal language of pop, forming an environment that is both accessible and impenetrable. First conceived as a ritual to be performed live, the songs were fittingly recorded inside a 19th century church in Seattle by Scott Colburn (Sun City Girls, Animal Collective, Arcade Fire). As their 5th full-length album, and first as a duo, Trust Now is perhaps Prince Rama's most focused, cohesive and powerful album to date.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting sound, but a bit underwhelming. October 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This LP was my introduction to Prince Rama, a duo of sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson who produce eastern music with hints of pop and electronica. The music in it's originality and eccentricity is reminiscent of acts like Gang Gang Dance, or Yeasayer's first album. The thing that perhaps sets this band apart from those and other acts is their approach to this kind of music--Taraka and Nimai were raised Hare Krishna, and you can hear it in the Eastern scales and time signatures that they use. They are ultimately producing music which is true to themselves culturally and individually, rather than crafting an aesthetic out of thin air, this effort feels natural, as if they are capable of creating no other kind of music. There are some flaws however, primarily in the production. The drums (perhaps the most distinctive element to the band's sound) are far too low in the mix, and they are unfortunately obscured by reverb, leading the music to sound rather underwhelming despite the quality of songcraft. It's difficult to really engage yourself in the music due to the flaccid nature of the production and often overwhelming musical styling--as interesting as their sound is, it can get quite heavy-handed. Overall this feels like music best heard live, at it's most raw and tribal.

The 4th album from this strange Brooklyn sister duo takes prayer bells & goat-skin drums to a
unique place of ritualistic tribal mysticism, where psychedelic mantra/chants and percussive
drones create a hauntingly eclectic, post-devotional, spectral aura. Still, they seem to have lost
some of the innovative sparkle that departed member Michael Collins provided. Hints of Coco
Rosie, Animal Collective, School Of Seven Bells, Sun Araw, and a spooky Hare Krishna drum
circle.
