It’s the big day, stargazers. For the first time since 1226, never to appear again for a few millennia, Jupiter and Saturn converge to form a rare “double planet.”
Expansive space-rock follows with The Gods Are Conspiring. Alexander Thomas’s drums rumble as brothers Delaney and Dedric Moore layer on synths, bass, and other treatments, resulting in a true psychedelic experience. Elegant Approach is all ‘sturm und drang’ with some heavy jazz rhythms. Advent of a New Trigon seems to coincide with the actual pairing of Saturn and Jupiter, casting regenerative spells to the horizon.
The EP closes with Slide Away Gradually, an instrumental callback to Embrace The Night which underscores the endless cycles of nature, the Great Conjunction certain to occur again and again and again.
