Plankton Wat - Future Times [LP]
Catalogue No.: THRILL538LP
Release Date: 26th February 2021
Genre: Alternative, Folk
As Plankton Wat, Dewey Mahood uses his considerable guitar prowess to deliver an album that encompasses both the wild, seeking energy of free-improvisation and the deliberate arrangements of more traditional composition.
With his deft and stylistically varied playing, Plankton Wat’s ‘Future Times’ escapes psychedelic tropes and chemical fuelled alterations and instead celebrates an escape into the natural world.
‘Future Times’ taps into psychedelia’s counter-cultural heritage as music for protest, liberation and imagining new ways of being in this world.
“Pastoral drones and swirling psychedelia” - Pitchfork
Known for his guitar prowess in modern psychedelic music, specifically with Eternal Tapestry as well as Edibles, Elephant Factory Galaxy Research and Gärden Söund among others.
‘Future Times’ was recorded at Mahood’s home studio Solar Commune, with additions from Dustin Dybvig (Horse Feathers & Edibles) and Victor Nash (Flash Hawk Parlor Ensemble). Features Ash Dybvig on flute.
LP comes on red or black vinyl packaged with download code and insert.
“[Mahood’s] lonesome universe is definitely a psych-folk monster on the sly… Mahood’s gone far into the burrow of psychedelia for an album that’s caustic and tender, bittersweet and effervescent.” - Raven Sings the Blues
