Limited orange and red colored vinyl LP pressing. Djinn - the Swedish collective featuring members of Hills and GOAT in their ranks - have proven themselves a potent and mysterious force. Following the 'Avant de Servir' tape which was released on Swedish label Zeon Light last year, 'Transmission' is a still more intrepid step into new terrain for Djinn - the mantric rhythms are hypnotic here, the freeform extrapolations hit new peaks of vivid abandon, and the moments of calm are blissfully meditative. Yet their sound palette extends into refreshing collisions of intent and metaphysical intensity that echo across the psychic landscapes of Sunburned Hand Of The Man-style freak-folk, as well as the polylingual fusion of jazz, European and Asian music that Don Cherry essayed on 1969's 'Eternal Rhythm' and 1973's 'Organic Music Society'. Amidst these intoxicating and richly eclectic soundworlds, the band are just as comfortable invoking Popol Vuh (as on the mellotronabetted title track) Art Ensemble Of Chicago and the lineage of Swedish underground music that found epiphanies in the radical folk-psych of Arbete Och Fritid whilst also sounding - crucially - like no-one but themselves. For all the far-reaching explorations of altered states by which Djinn set out their stall, this collection of mystical headspaces - in all it's fearless and feral glory - is proof positive that the band's journey has only just begun. This transmission is set to ring out across dimensions unknown.
