Sky Lantern Records is thrilled to be releasing Portland band Eternal Tapestry's latest live offering Sleeping On A Dandelion, a project that we've been putting together for quite some time. Featuring a one-off expanded line up, this is a radiant and earthy improvised session pulling together elements of underground spiritual jazz and classic krautrock while never once sounding stale or imitative. "Black Pine Trees In An Orange Light" kicks off the proceedings with a deep, funky bass line, soaring sax and ethereal vocals as the band slowly builds on a wall of blissed out wah guitar. A real groover. "Where the Trees Touch the Ground" goes and kicks it all into overdrive, waves of sound fighting to clear out your eardrums as Jed Bindeman keeps everything locked in nice and tight on drums. Recorded at Mississippi studios on a stacked bill including fellow heads Kikagaku Moyo and Moon Duo (you know some special energy was in the air that night), it was recorded by guitarist Nick Bindeman to a "slightly damaged" handheld recorder, giving it a well-toasted, in-the-red, right-there-in-the-middle-of-it-all sound. Essential!
