Editorial Reviews

2009 collection. Welsh artist Pete Fowler's Monsterism Island has long been known as a musical cornucopia, and an album full of esoteric treats makes perfect sense. This CD contains original compositions from some of the underground's most intrepid musical explorers. Spanning monstrous Rock fry-ups, Electronic Exotica via Psychedelic Folk and spooky Krautrock, The Psychedelic Guide features artists who unleash their most creative tendencies to bring the kind of music only heard on Monsterism Island. Includes tracks from Luke Vibert, Marc Shearer, Gruff Rhys, Jerry Dammers and many others.

Format: Audio CD
Marvelous range of music from reeling funky jazzy rock with only hints of that magic word psychedelia, to full blown electronic trance, all mind warping and intricate yet at the same time subdued and chilled, relaxing. All in all this collection of sounds is one wild/dreamy ride, so enjoy it!

while this comp may appeal to some, the psychadelic tag is a bit of a misnomer. mostly it's electronic music, a good thing to know for those who might be thrown off by the inclusion of greats like wolf people. their track is a great instrumental that jibes with their other releases, and it does sort of fit into the narrative of music here as a whole, but for those of you expecting fuzzy guitars and 60s era psyche, don't buy this. it's basically mellow house music or some other electronic genre which i neither know how to label or care much about.
