Hallucinogen is the stage name of Simon Posford (Shpongle, Younger Brother, Celtic Cross), an English electronic musician, specializing in Psychedelic trance music. With 1995's 'Twisted', he had established himself as a very talented man with the ability to layer different sounds and beats into very potent patterns of elegant, intense electronic music. While 'Twisted' earned him a position as the creator of one of the most influential trance albums of all time, 'The Lone Deranger' can only be described as the album that cemented this well-earned status.
Virginians Ralph and Carter Stanley, the Stanley Brothers, took the traditional Appalachian string band songs of their home and updated them into a traditionally rooted modern bluegrass sound that was singular for its authentic tone, no-frills simplicity, and at times haunting and astonishing beauty, the very model of the high lonesome sound. This expansive four-disc, 111-track box covers the later part of the middle period of their recording career, collecting virtually every side the brothers recorded for the King record label between 1961 and 1965. That's a whole lot of Stanley Brothers, but the musical quality, integrity, and execution of this storied duo never waver here, and indeed, they never really did waver one bit any time the two of them stepped in front of the microphones.
JPNSGRLS released their latest LP Divorce earlier this year, but the band's singer Charlie Kerr has been keeping extra busy with a solo project on the side. He's been recording on his lonesome under the moniker Matt and Sam's Brother, and Exclaim! is pleased to introduce you to the new project with the video premiere of "Spacesuit."
