- Eskimo Recordings
One of three double LP versions. Ritual Chants is a stellar earthbound and outer space odyssey, respectfully embellishing Psychemagik's taste and passion for the wonderful, the sublime and very often unusual. Ritual Chants skillfully shows insights into applying retro finds into a contemporary setting, much of the material acquired via world tours and capturing the excitement of finding and sharing lost jewels. Compiled by Danny McLewin, the renowned record digger of the duo, Ritual Chants is carefully programmed and sequenced over three double LP releases
On Love, pre-new age emanations are present with Water Sports by Man Parrish, a beautiful tranquil and cascading synth poem which soothes and pulses, and the sublime and haunting God's Garden by John J. Francis. Other songs such as the Gallic seduction of L'Amour Joue Au Violon by Jeanette, a real string-swept lost masterpiece reminiscent of Melody Nelson-era Serge Gainsbourg are featured.
