Cosmic Rocker Mirrors and Windows
- Words: Joe Rice
- Label: Stoned Asia
Sasha Crnobrnja, co-founder of NY's Organic Grooves, may have come from Switzerland, but his heart (and ear) lies in Istanbul. Eastern scales created from tatters and cut-ups of old records flow onto a dub canvas in a successful example of cultural globalism. There's nothing metallic or angular here, as tracks sway and melt under layers of melody. While the occasional melodic motif strikes as a bit simple in counterpoint to its tripped-out underpinnings, the work as a whole is an enjoyable hookah-inspired dream.
