Album of the Day - Mount Vernon Astral Temple

Not nearly enough is said about the work of Scotsman Drew Mulholland. I started buying his singles in the mid-90s, when he was using the Mount Vernon Arts Lab moniker. I appreciated Mulholland's unique approach to sound, and always kept up, on through his more recent mutation as Mount Vernon Astral Temple. This is noise-music reconfigured as psychedelia—and much easier on the ears—where power electronics meets its Krautrock godfathers in a wholly new sonic environment, buzzing and alive with alternating current. Since the folder I found this album in also included one track from the MVAT Untitled CD, released later the same year (both by Eskaton), I've zipped that into the download as well.
