Light Sounds Dark lasso another obscure bag of treats from the underground’s psychedelic humus on The Acceptable Presence Pt. 2, following the 1st set’s YouTube-playlist-come-LP suite with a bounty of bewts sourced from feck-knows-where. If the last one scattered your marbles, this will get you no closer to finding them, trust us.
With their genre agnostic ear goggles on again, the cryptic cats behind LSD keep listeners on their toes, their arse, and eventually face down looking upon the world from above with 20 selections pulled from every odd corner of the late 20th century’s musical imagination, patching together an arcane sort of neural network of connections between far flung and whacked out vibes.
What the set possibly lacks in fidelity, it makes up for in its selections and sequencing, resulting a mind-flossing dérive from Norbert Stolz’ hallucinatory Genetic Plans thru to the ambient UFO of Moxon’s Master, taking in the esoteric industrial collage of Laurent Pernice, druggy krautrock from Nexda, the warped NDW nerve jangle of Sueño Sueño, pre-echoes of AI dream from Konstructivits, and a slompy psychedelic belter by Van Kaye & Ignit among them.
