Lepidoptera - Fursaxa [2005]

A feather on the breath of God

The ever prolific Tara Burke's "breakthrough" release. Hi-Lo-Fi celestial drone and flutter of mantric pulse. Weaving medieval plainchant, ancient folk, psychedelic traditions, Fursaxa hypnotises and enthralls. She escapes reductive classification and roams enchanted new meadows; fields of low droned chord organ and farfisa, detuned ringing guitar, and endlessly looped, multi-tracked and delayed vocals. And the voice...resonant, and radiantly narcoleptic; easy comparison to Nico's monotone lullabies are only half of it. Tara's humming narcosis is a floating mind made manifest.
