Artist: HIGH WOLF
Title: A Guide to Healing
Format: 7"
Label: Bathetic
Country: USA
Price: $7.00
"A particularly potent missive from the Gallic psyche enigma, HIGH WOLF. From the first bars of Free Your Energy Field we can feel ourselves being sucked in reverse towards the kaleidoscopic vortex of High Wolfs loops, tempered tape distortion at the edge of event horizon buffering a stream of chromatic synth colours and spiraling raga scales towards the inky abyss of your psyche. Once on the other side we Swallow Pills with Ganga River Water, where babbling rhythms split off into stereo swirling formations curling around the head and hallucinatory images of astral harmony begin to form in the third eye, glands swelling in the frontal lobes to perfume the senses into a deeply spiritual reverie. Lush." -Boomkat.

Artist: HIGH WOLF
Title: Atlas Nation
Format: LP
Label: Holy Mountain
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"Frances HIGH WOLF possesses a natural-born ability to produce tones most conducive to inducing transcendental states. Prolific without wearing out his welcome, the guitarist and effects box manipulator sets loose fervid streams of fever-dream drones. High Wolfs tracks sound as if theyve been sluicing since the beginning of time, siphoned for teasingly brief absorption before they shimmer off to the vanishing point. This elite droneur is one of the few musicians who could title a 7-inch A Guide to Healing without it coming off as an ironic gesture or a laughable boast. Atlas Nation-recorded in 2010 after a long trip to India and Nepal-deepens High Wolfs penetration into the mystic. It evokes an uneasy peace with a new breed of tribal psychedelia shorn of all hokey signifiers. "Fuji Descent" starts the album with what could be a languid, paradisiacal soundtrack to a scrapped Alejandro Jodorowsky film. "The Dawn of Man" is a stark, stoned processional burrowing into malarial climes where guitars squawk in ominous tongues while congas cave in chests and clear brush with a vengeance. "Raagini" magnifies and psychedelicizes Rapoons mantric, ritualistic hand-drum patter and tropical-forest drones while hinting at Don Cherrys jazz-raga peregrinations. High Wolf claims that "Haiti" was "recorded in a couple of hours [on] the day of the big earthquake in Haiti, so its the darkest / saddest High Wolf track ever." Its a fittingly miasmic, climactic threnody. Think of Atlas Nation as a surreal aural travelogue that takes a giant step beyond Jon Hassells "Fourth World" music-a humid milieu teeming with alien tonalities and oracular currents. Its as welcome as a new, improved entheogen on the streets." - Holy Mountain.

Title: Ascension
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"Pyramidal meditationist High Wolf has been highly active since last summers Animal Totem tape dropped on NNF: hes released three full-length CDRs, started his own record label (Winged Sun), begun a mail-collab with Astral Social Club (as Iibiis Rooge), embarked on two UK/Euro tours (one with heavyweights Gnod), plus trekked out on a month-long solo journey through India to collect field recordings and get deep. Whoa! Makes you feel lazy right? Well actually thats not all, as he also spent a few months somewhere in there recording, mixing, and re-recording the five multifaceted ethno-flux odysseys that comprise Ascension, his debut vinyl full-length. Utilizing his usual toolbag of looped tablas, fuzz guitar leads, chiming white light guitar, synth swells, and cloud-climbing electronics, the album safaris through a host of ecstatic ritual landscapes with more focus and magic than any other High Wolf hunt to date. A beautiful album for dissolving, dreaming, dancing (in a certain way). Been spinning this one weekly, share the flight. Black vinyl LPs mastered by Pete Swanson and housed in jackets with artwork by Kaugummi Magazine captain Bartolome Sanson. Edition of 400." -Not Not Fun

Title: Kairos: Chronos
Format: LP
Label: Not Not Fun
Country: USA
Price: $15.00
"French globe-tourist HIGH WOLF has hand-rolled his way up Mount Fuji, trainspotted every corner of Europe, hitch-hiked across America and Australia, chugged Ganges water, and crouched on all manner of smoke-stained prayer rug since first looping a bongo back in 09. His apprenticeship in the House of Wah nearly complete, hes hinted at a potentially seismic shift in the High Wolf third eye doctrine lurking in the near future; perhaps his Away Team exfoliation moment is nigh. Fortunately, Not Not Fun has coaxed the astral jungle jah concoctions of Kairos: Chronos out from the ether, because this LP is the summation of his entire half-decade Amazon Cosmos quest. All the tenets of the High Wolf mythology are in place: humid hand-percussion heat-spells, coiling snake-charmer fuzz-guitar stacked six deep, sunlit synth textures, dubby bass-lines thumping through grass amps, ceremonial voodoo babble, etc. From the hidden temple hymn "Kulti" to the thirteen-minute self-beheading solar eclipse shakedown, "Alvarado," the record represents rarified proof of The Wolf on High. On tour now in every country on Earth. Jacket designed by esteemed London visualist ANTHONY GERACE. Edition of 450." - Not Not Fun
