My roommate was convinced this would be a drone cassette, but I could tell by the hand drawn eyes on the cover this was going to be some super hippy stuff.
Although not without it’s drone moments, Das Energi float around slowly strummed guitar and minor electronics. It’s a quiet, pleasant set of songs. Maybe best utilized for a come down after a trip in the desert? That’s what I keep thinking anyways. It’s certainly not party music.
The electronics adds a really nice texture to the music, if it were just heavy on acoustic stringed instruments, I would have been out like a light from hitting the play button.
It is a long cassette, so bear in mind that you may take a while to digest all of the music, but it’s pretty relaxing and not in a boring way. 6/10 -- Andrew Murdock Livingston (28 April, 2010)
