how weird are the times we live in
This fresh brew of San Francisco psy-electronica gives testimony to the state of affairs in the california underground in the year 2003 -in times where its government makes war at will and gives billions in corporate wellfare while the everyday people are struggling more and more under economic and social repressions.
In a place that is told to exchange its freedom for freedom fries, music evolves from the electronic counterculture that speaks of many hopes, fears and desires - the retreat to the spiritual and introspection as well as the excessive pursuit of happiness through the full-on musical experience, seriously crafted but playful in nature.
Peace and spiteful optimism is at the core of this compilation, a musical document of dangerous but highly suspenseful times, where weirdness and normality is in the eye of the beholder. The annual How Weird Street Fair in San Francisco has been living proof of this relativity of creative expression for four years nowand this CD captures some of the musical energy expressed and experimented with at this festival.
