Tone Float - Music Von Tone Float

45798
Tone Float is well assembled experimental 'dreamy space rock'. Liked all eight of this CD's tracks. But the true highlights are "Tonight We All Sleep With The Eggroll King", the awesome "Vapourspace Aquarium", the ten-minute epic "Millipede" and "Blood Red Horizon". Noticed this disc featured long time members of Vas Deferens Organization - Eric Lumbleau, Matt Castille and Doug Ferguson along with members of Mazinga Phaser (the Texas psych band). Not a bad choice here, really - just may be a bit out-there for some listeners. Might draw in devoted followers of Neu!, O.H.M., Can and early King Crimson.
MIT consists of Mazinga Phaser leader Wanz Dover, Ohm's Doug Ferguson, and the Vas Deferens Organization's Matt Castille and Eric Lumbleau. Musik von Tone Float is one of the warmest and friendliest examples of this kind of music you're likely to encounter; the VDO crew in particular did an excellent job of subduing its impulses toward confrontational freakiness. We're definitely in the realm of soundtrack here, running the gamut from random noises shooting through space ("tonight we sleep with the eggroll king") to slowly-building tribal stomps ("millipede"), but the whole trip is quite seamlessly constructed. A fascinating peek in a surprising direction.
A sonic portfolio of the Texas psych/Krautrock inspired scene it represents, but also an homage to the heavily lysergic first Kraftwerk album under the name Organisation; as the rave review in Alternative Press rightly pointed out, "words cannot do justice to the utterly outlandish studio experiments Tone Float achieve here." And quite rightly, AP are quick to praise the "sonic sorcery" that pervades these cosmic corridor wanderings, this "sublimely demented carnival music."
