ak'chamel is a southwestern band that plays far-far out primal psychedelic cult-trance world-folk...they invoked sun city girls when they emailed me, and the comparison is apt. apparently they have shared the stage with the great 'sir' richard bishop as well.
their new tape, 'the man who drank god' sounds like a series of concise religious songs, chants and dirges from a lost society that never existed that you would really hope you would never run across, being played on an old 78 or one of those radios you have to crank. recorded and released on a cassette from field hymns which i highly recommend getting.
get it here digitally, or get the cassette here from field hymns.
