After the sold out success of their debut album Enemy Earth returns to Eat Concrete with >Bardo<, their second full length release for the label. This album continues where the previous >Interstellar Commute< ended, taking their psychedelic sound to a much deeper and emotive level by using live piano, guitar and bass onto layers of effects and lo-fi sampling. It offers eight songs with recurring themes and instruments, all mixed into two big sessions, each filling one side of the LP. Limited edition vinyl release with inlay.
The result is very obscure yet beautiful and enigmatic, sounding like a '70's psych-rock / ambient jam session where Bibio, Fripp and Eno all play along Buddhist chants and drums. 'Bardo' is a journey into the unknown, or, as the artists themselves describe: 'for a state of mind or transition in or from one’s life'. This is the kind of record you won't find very often and with their mind bending and authentic sound Enemy Earth establish themselves as a favourite from the ever growing Eat Concrete rooster.
