Album artwork for Wirikuta by Tau

For centuries the desert has proved to be a spiritually rich landscape. It's vast openness and still tranquillity lending itself to many a spiritual awakening or outer body experience once within its endless grasp; and in a world that gets busier and more occupied by the day, this reflective escape into one of nature's greatest spaces becomes understandably more appealing for some. For Shaun Nunutzi, a member of the fearsome band Dead Skeletons and now operating under the name TAU, this has certainly been the case. The mystical powers of the desert lands of the Real de Catorce in North West Mexico and has proven to be vital inspiration for the deeply psychedelic mind-trip EP entitled Wirakuta, which is the indigenous name for land. He says of his time there, "Spending time in places like these awaken the senses, make you feel connected to the earth, something that everyone yearns for. We have time to think and let intuition flow a bit, which goes hand in hand with the creative process." Whilst the sound on TAU is progressive and pushed forward by propulsive psychedelic thrusts of a contemporary nature, this is also a release that is indebted to tradition and history. Some of the material is reimagined indigenous medicine songs aimed at transcending the mind and liberating the spirit.  says of this very traditional, yet unique, approach, "Huey Tonantzin (the E.P's opening track) is a very famous medicine song sang in Temazcales and prayer circles for thousands of years". They are the original psychedelia."Edition of 400, 10"  transparent blue vinyl.
