Plankton Wat: Drifter's Temple

Plankton Wat: Drifter’s Temple

Side project of Dewey Mahood from Eternal Tapestry and Garden Sound. Droney instrumental rock, with some noodly blues-psych guitar licks, and some keyboards. Laid back and relaxed, meandering and spacious, but still focused enough to keep all the songs in a 3-6 minute time frame. A couple tracks have drums (“Nightfall”, the hand percussion on opener “Toward The Golden City”), and there’s some keyboards, but the focus is mainly on ringing, chiming acoustic guitars, as well as some blazing distorted solos. The two most different tracks are “Hash Smuggler’s Blues” (full of pulsating tremolo) and the awesome noisy finale of “Siskiyou Caverns”.
