Symbiose is a split LP featuring two panoramic deep-field oozers that sustain interest, gently wandering the cosmos, through smoke rings and across star clusters, filling the space that stretches between Eastern and Western America and continuing the musical thread that connects modern American underground artists to the European birth of kosmic music. Like Popol Vuh and Ash Ra Tempel, Symbiose sinks its roots into the liminal landscape of the listeners neuro-hemispheres, creeping like black-light illuminated mycelium, passing through subterranean pathways of inner experience, emotion, and vision. Those who love modern acts like MV & EE and Ben Chasny will likely enjoy this album as much as European space rock and Pink Floyd aficionados, because this Symbiose is an interaction between two organisms to the advantage of all.
With Symbiose, Beyond Beyond is Beyond presents a modern offering of new comprehensive kosmiche composed by a duo who feast on a diet of spaced out sounds from the past, and like their predecessors, they take the listener deep within, while casting the music out across a galactic canvas. The album art, by Jack Hardwicke, evokes a similar feeling of drifting in dream, the mind soaring through cosmic landscapes rooted in the collective imagination. Come along with these guitar hermits on their outward-bound psych journey.
