Album artwork for A.F.C.S. by A Full Cosmic Sound

Interesting space-hunch from the Chilean Underground. Formed by members of La Banda's and others, the sound is open form free rock ditherage with certain similarities to the most fully-spronged outriders of the German 1970s scene. But this is a far cry from recent Sky Records recidivism.

The ease and consolidation achieved by A Full Cosmic Sound, has allowed the group to perform with total comfort when facing some kind of spontaneous recording or collaboration. After a series of cassettes and 7 inches published in the last decade through labels such as BYM, Fabrica (NYC) and Volante Discos (Argentina), A.F.C.S. it’s the first long play of the group. The A side of the album is composed of a selection of themes that appeared in his first musical deliveries, features current and former members of Chilean psych-ensemble La Banda’s and Psychedelic Schafferson Jetplane which conjure up the sounds emitted by playing dusty early “easy listening” electronic music records 6 on your turntable, the psych/sonic explorations of Sonic Youth and Experimental Audio Research, and the echoes of Santiago’s busy urban sound-scapewhile. It contains Murky spacey distorted fuzz-drenched jams with a hint of Spacemen 3 and a pinch of Joy Divisionish bass-lines thrown into the mix. The drum machines are straight out of Suicide and the bass from Pärson Sound. It makes for a heady mixture. The B side gathers the current sound of the band, where the pulsations coexist in harmony with dissociated sounds and deconstruction. The group develops a more controlled and enveloping sound than before. In a nutshell, it consists in a sonic exercise developed through a blend of harmonies, frequencies, drones and repetitions generated by keyboards, synthesizers, guitars and multiple effects. evokes rhythmic and deconstructive explorations of local bands such as The Jaivas and environmental passages in the wake of Popol Vuh.
