Well, it's E.S.P. time and again strange doesn't begin to describe this. Basically a record of a man and his guitar, this LP manages with the simple means of vocals, guitar playing, whistling and some studio effects (loads of echo everywhere) to create a compelling listening experience. Unlike on any other release by this label that I know of, the music is quite straightforward in itself. The opening Two stars sounds common enough, but the for over 7 minutes lasting Grok (martian love call), evidently partly sung in Martian too, sees the singer diving through inner space with dexterity and courage. At times vaguely reminiscent of the British songwriter Simon Finn, Jim journeys along through a set of disconcerting songs that all sound like far-out space-rock played on acoustic guitar only. Extremely soft passages turn up unexpectedly, odd dissonances occur. Little boy has a slightly untuned guitar and jarring stops. Never be free has disquieting repetitive phrases and the long Look into the (k)night is programmatic not only because of its title, but also by way of the spectral and disjointed way of playing. Balancing precariously between terror and bliss, this is one of the still undiscovered psych records that must be called like that on the strength of the uncompromisingly psychedelic inner attitude of the player. Practically incomparable to anything else I've heard, this comes recommended.
