Harmony of the Spheres - v/a, 1996

Somebody called this album 'the best drone compilation ever'; I'd say that Drunken Fish, the label behind this gem, could have named it 'The Shape of Music to Come'. In 1996, the artists featured were just a bunch of obscure psych acts defying the regimes of grunge, triphop, and post-rock equally successfully. A few years passed and they're all household names; moreover, everybody and their dog plays like one of them.
Originally released as a 3xLP edition, with each artist given one side; the thing was also available as a double CD.
A: Bardo Pond - "Sangh Seriatim"
B: Flying Saucer Attack - "Since When" pts. 1-4
C: Jessamine - "22:30"
D: Roy Montgomery - "Fantasia on a Theme by Sandy Bull"
E: Loren MazzaCane Connors - 4 songs
F: Charalambides - "Naked in Our Deathskins"
Get A and B here
Get C here
Get D, E and F here
and enjoy the sound quality of the .ogg files. The bitrate is somewhat lower than 500, though.
