Enlightened Paramecium

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - David Reamer
In 1999, Chicago's self-proclaimed "tribal hypno pop" artists left the security of sold-out shows in the Chicago area for the unexplored territories of record sales and national exposure. The result is Enlightened Paramecium, eight tracks of psychedelic rock that led to success on the college radio market. Although the full-length Conscious Pilot from which these tracks are taken was eventually scrapped, the band launched a national club tour in support of the sampler disc, and continued writing and performing new songs. While the surrealist music of Enlightened Paramecium easily draws comparisons to the Grateful Dead, its influences lie in the early works of Led Zeppelin,...

All Music Guide - David Reamer
In 1999, Chicago's self-proclaimed "tribal hypno pop" artists left the security of sold-out shows in the Chicago area for the unexplored territories of record sales and national exposure. The result is Enlightened Paramecium, eight tracks of psychedelic rock that led to success on the college radio market. Although the full-length Conscious Pilot from which these tracks are taken was eventually scrapped, the band launched a national club tour in support of the sampler disc, and continued writing and performing new songs. While the surrealist music of Enlightened Paramecium easily draws comparisons to the Grateful Dead, its influences lie in the early works of Led Zeppelin, Revi Shankar, and Dead Can Dance. Solar Tribe combines elements of each of these psychedelic artists in a spiritual orgy that highlights moments of reflection and true inspiration. Solar Tribe and its music are the results of singer/songwriter/lead guitarist Ramsey Gouda, whose Buddhist beliefs are a running theme of Enlightened Paramecium. With four vocalists, male and female, the songs on the album have a textured feel, and a number of vocal combinations are employed. The six-member group also utilizes a wide variety of instruments, including the sitar, dijeridoo, and Chinese harp to create a worldly sound that could only come from a group as diverse in ethnic and religious background as Solar Tribe. Several of its songs include Sanskrit chants, and references to Eastern religions abound. Of course, more mainstream pop tracks are not out of the question as Solar Tribe explores its own boundaries, and rest assured that catchy choruses abound on Enlightened Paramecium.
