Kinski/Acid Mothers Temple [Split CD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Heather Phares
Given the elaborate, expansive styles of the bands involved, it's not a surprise that the self-titled collaboration between experimental/psychedelic adventurers Kinski and Acid Mothers Temple stretches four tracks to over an hour. The bands need that extra time to give their distinct but related styles room to flow and build; with each band contributing one of their own tracks and also collaborating with each other on the other two tracks, there's a lot of musical territory to cover. The EP begins and ends with its noisiest, most rock-oriented tracks and puts its dreamiest moments in the middle, giving it the feel of a long journey. Kinski's "Fell Asleep on Your Lawn" ...

Given the elaborate, expansive styles of the bands involved, it's not a surprise that the self-titled collaboration between experimental/psychedelic adventurers Kinski and Acid Mothers Temple stretches four tracks to over an hour. The bands need that extra time to give their distinct but related styles room to flow and build; with each band contributing one of their own tracks and also collaborating with each other on the other two tracks, there's a lot of musical territory to cover. The EP begins and ends with its noisiest, most rock-oriented tracks and puts its dreamiest moments in the middle, giving it the feel of a long journey. Kinski's "Fell Asleep on Your Lawn" rivals and possibly surpasses anything on their recent Airs Above Your Station, taking their linear Sonic Youth-inspired guitar work and volatile dynamics to a more exalted level. The track begins with a circular, nearly classical-sounding guitar line before igniting into driving distortion -- a tactic the band uses often, but it sounds especially passionate here. "It's Nice to Hear Your Voice," Kinski's collaboration with Acid Mothers Temple, maintains the intensity of the previous song but expresses it much more softly, with delicate, delayed guitars unfolding over insect-like buzzing strings. The Acid Mothers Temple/Kinski pairing "Planet Crazy Gold" follows suit, beginning gently and introducing more and more touches of the band's exotically psychedelic sound, such as sitars, sonar-like synths, flutes, and chanting. However, nothing can prepare the listener for "Virginal Plane 5:23," a monster psych-rock jam that, at 25 minutes, lasts nearly five times as long as the number cited in its title. With its endlessly repeated riffs, windswept synths, and distant drumming, the track has a relatively earthbound beginning before taking off into stratospheric, feedback-laden improv and then returning to its rock roots. A collaboration in the best sense, Kinski/Acid Mothers Temple shows off the best aspects of both bands, both together and on their own.
