Lichens' hymnodic Omns continues multi-instrumentalist Rob Lowe's quest for enlightenment via improvisation. A minimalist with un-hackneyed sacred leanings, Lowe uses guitar, voice, and myriad effects to achieve a mystical oneness with your (higher) mind. Lichens' recordings are conduits for others to join him on an ambitious journey to loftier levels of consciousness à la musicians like Terry Riley and Alice Coltrane. Subtler than any freak-folkie, Lichens evokes a sonic purity that could be the foundation of a new religion. Omns' spiritual profundity should convert even the staunchest skeptics.
