Format: MP3 Music
This was a good year for the fans of the remaining Sun City Girls. Alverius B re-released his phenomenal early lo-fi recordings (see Alvarius B) and Sir Richard Bishop put out a great new record with his always-brilliant psych-rock project Rangda (see Formerly Extinct) as well as this album with fellow experimentalist David Oliphant, an acquaintence since the early days of SCG, who, if he is known at all, would be known for his (based on what little I've heard) unsettling ambient works, from which Beyond All Defects is a more natural continuation than from anything in SRB's past.

Beyond All Defects is purported to be the first in a series released on the Chodpamedia imprint, inspired by Tibetan Buddhism and the music of the Himalayan lowlands. It's unique in SRB's catalogue; an eery, quiet and very cohesive album performed with traditional or ceremonial instrumentation and settings of east India and I suspect it was Oliphant who brought with him a remarkable skill in mixing and post-production. Though permeated, as you'd expect from an SRB project, with the subversive and slightly-demented, there's a calm and relentless beauty even throughout the anxious pounding of tribal rhythms, chants or shapeless, ever-mutating drones. The best thing I can say about it is that after literally scores of listens I'm still as intrigued as I was at the beginning. I very highly recommend this to anyone who isn't easily weirded-out, but especially to those interested in experimental ambient or electronic music for which this will almost certainly be eye-opening.

Strong and pushy beat. High energy in most every track. A bit overwhelming and not ideal to relax with. Very well recorded and clear. My first Bishop album. Two more on order. Impressive for sure.
