Al Cisneros is no stranger to the deep meditations of a minimalist, sub-sonic song. We've all been totally faced by the ritual low-end thunder his band, OM, bestow as gospel both live and on record on the regular, a sound source which can hardly be described as minimal yet never needs more than a smattering of accompaniment beyond its usual, steady drumming. Perhaps a bit of guitar here, some keys there, or maybe just some extra tambo to provide color, but first and foremost, you get full-frontal bass. Earlier this year, OM took a dub-step further with a double dose of Alpha & Omega-lized dub 12"s - songs from the Advaitic tome, each a winding circle of essential, minimalist hypnotics. These in turn pave the expanded road-consciousness for Al's deepest exploration of minimal hypnotics yet: "Ark Procession" b/w "Jericho" on a 10" record, Al Cisneros providing all the sounds, all his own. For many, this is the first solo Al listening experience, save for the lucky few who grabbed a self-released 7" on tour this past year. For us, it's pure pleasure. Vibe along with us and dig the feelings yourself, by watching the video for "Ark Procession" and get ready to own your own Al Cisneros 10" - "Ark Procession" b/w "Jericho" comes out August 20th!
