Paths of Prakriti: Axis Mundi

"Paths of Prakriti were formed in the beginning of the summer of 2006 after recording a set of demos at an art school in Trondheim, Sør-Trøndelag, Norway. The band includes: Jon Reier Sylte, on guitar, vocals, tambourine, sitar, harmonica, drums, synth, organ; Ole Kristain Malmedal, on organ, drums and bass; and Anders Bjermeland, on African percussion, flute, and drums. The songs and words are basically the brainchild of Jon Reier Sylte and a collective of assisting friends and musicians " (, 2012).

This is an interesting collection of psychedelic/folk tunes created in the 21st Century that harkens back to a time and era of music from the late 1960s and 70s. They even use the famous phrase made popular during that era, "Tune in, drop out".

A line in the song, Kingdome Come pretty well sums up the feeling you get from listening to this album, "well I guess I lost it all to another time". You definitely feel like you've taken a time machine back to another time and place, but this time from a modern perspective. The guitar and sitar music on this album are excellent. The monotone vocals can get to you after a while. But like some great bands, the music is good enough to overcome the vocal sound.

This is a good change of pace or change of pallet album that will provide some new notes and sounds. If you like psychedelic folk music you need to get this new interpretation.
