The first release by Lhasa Shore leave - three tracks, 21 minutes of buzzy drones and distant murmers, an audio expressway to other planes of existence, sure to induce hallucinations. Originally released as a 3" CDR, limited to 50 copies, with full-color cover, packaged in a hand-sewn cloth bag, made from a recycled Japanese obi.

Aquarius Records said "This is a gorgeous little slab of droning free rock shimmer, twenty minutes of keening, pealing, warm and warbling, fuzzy foggy dream like bliss, Three lengthy tracks of slow moving, slower buliding, barely shifting swirls of warm chordal hum, simple stretched out melodies and trancelike Ur-drone. As good as anything we've heard from Sunroof!, Vibracathedral Orchestra, Pelt, Birchville Cat Motel and the like."

By special arrangement with Lollyfonix, Lhasa's second release, Dancehall Sugar, is included here (tracks 4-8). Originally released just before the 2006 804Noise Fest as a limited stamped cdr in a stamped, spray-painted and sandpaper-abraded sleeve.

Aquarius liked that one too - "The sound is similar to the first release, just stretched out, those extra 2 cd inches allowing for plenty of space to stretch out, more space for LSL's buzzing minimal sprawl.
Epic droning ragas assembled from multiple layers of grinding guitar buzz, give way to spacious stretches of ambient tranquility, with distant shimmers and minimal percussive clatter. A mournful melody woven into the slow shifting soundscape before building back into a crackling static hum, pulsing with buzzing static. Elsewhere, gorgeous acoustic guitars drift apart into blurry breathy drifts, and wide expanses of sparkling ambience waver and warble like a desert mirage. So nice. A near perfect batch of blissed out dronedream raga. "
