Shpongle - Nothing Lasts But Nothing Is Lost (MP3)
The title of Shpongle's newest album, 'Nothing Lasts' is a reference to Terence Mckenna, one of their many influences.
The inimitable audio pioneers, Simon Posford & Raja Ram remind us not only the about the impermanence of life but also how to rewrite the ambient agenda with yet more spell binding music from their outer cosmos that is 'Shpongle'. With sonic waves in a sea of synths, battalions of brazilian batucada beats, flamenco & piano solo's, vocal soarings from Hari Om and trancey dubs this really is more music from the other world. A place of undefinable and indescribable beauty where all cultures collide, genres are rode over rough shot, and nothing is outlawed. For those that know them these will be the sentiments they recognize and welcome as further evidence of Shpongle's reputation. To those that don't, welcome to a new universe at one with it's own language and musical map, a place of beauty and impermanence.
