Daniel Higgs - Ancestral songs (2006, Holy Mountain))

Scaruffi review:

"Higgs' second solo CD, Ancestral Songs (Holy Mountain, 2006), contained six psalms of transcendental psychedelia for guitar, banjo, jew's harp, toy piano and voice, imbued with esoteric religious imagery: the spectral Living in the Kingdom of Death, the ten-minute Thy Chosen Bride for banjo and voice, etc. The jew's harp returns to haunt his meditations in Moharsing and Schoenhut and Time-Ship of the Demogorgon. Much of the album was born at the intersection of simple repetitive hypnotic acoustic guitar riffs and shaman-like invocations and set in a wasteland of decaying distorted sounds."
