Cosmic Americana, minimalism, dub, left field beats, and European kosmische? Say no more! Seance Centre’s latest is a project “recorded across decades and continents” with Malmö-based musicians Emanuel Sundin (Prins Emanuel), Ivar Lantz (Golden Ivy), and Martin Blomberg (Inre Kretsen Grupp) crafting new compositions using unreleased material from Jon Iverson’s reel-to-reel archive. Guitar, Balinese jaw harp, violin, lap steel, trumpet, pump organ, and various percussion instruments come together for “wide-open 21st Century group-think cosmic music” with heavy grooves that would surely work on the right dance floor. “Kaen” is a big standout and isn’t something you’d expect from this sort of “Many Worlds Interpretation” music. With a heavy, dub groove and production approach, it works surprisingly well with the minimal, avant-garde piano motif.
