A dystopian synthesis of east-west raga rock. The second track to come out of Lasso Undone further explores world musics to scintillating effects. Pedal steel and wobbly synth ornament a terse Indian break beat intertwined with orientally moded guitar. Andrew John Tar sagely singtalks from a weathered, late-era Eastwoodian perspective. “I’ve been around the world and back again and you’re all freaks,” Catlin seems to bemoan. The chorus hits on the downbeat and feels like a cavalcade of what is Future: The Awesome, Impending Nowness.
Note: There are several versions of Blade Runner. There are several ports of Bushido Blade. Lasso is a multiverse. Lincoln and Lao Tzu having tea.
