Shpongle is back, with a new album, ‘Nothing Lasts’ a reference to Terence Mckenna and one of their many influences, the imitable 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 solo’s, 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 sentiments they recognize and welcome as further evidence of Shongle’s reputation. To those that don’t, welcome to a new universe one with it’s own language and musical map, a place of beauty and impermanence.
