A split release with Mandragora Records. Afternoon Dream is the debut solo CD release of Paradise Camp 23 director Erik Amlee. His previous solo sitar CD-r releases have garnered much acclaim in many quarters. Brad Rose of Foxy Digitalis declared "Amlee's skill is apparent. This piece delicately unfolds like a linear dream about the sun's daily movement in the sky. With little more than a hint of delay to push the movement along, Amlee's playing is like a slow waltz at the moment the last rays of dusk are extinguished. It is simple, beautiful, and timeless." On this release Amlee adds acoustic guitar to the proceedings, to wonderful effect. Afternoon Dream is a masterful combination of trance inducing solo sitar work and pellucid acoustic guitar pieces, with a subversive loop or two thrown in to ensure that listeners don't merely drift away completely into a blissful sonic netherworld. BIO: A figure in the underground experimental psychedelic music scene since the Eighties, Erik Amlee has performed in a variety of groups and settings exploring the outer fringes of sonic possibilities. Last year the release of his two solo sitar CD-rs brought him to the attention of a whole new group of listeners. Besides running the Mandragora imprint, Amlee is also responsible for Weirdsville web radio - bringing ten channels of adventurous sounds for your listening pleasure.
