Eric Hardiman has been a principal participant on the Albany experimental scene for the last two decades, releasing piles of recordings with Burnt Hills, Century Plants, and other projects. Inverted Summer marks the full-length vinyl debut of his solo guise Rambutan, and its gentle, oscillating synths and dark dronescapes make it the perfect platter to put on before you slide open your retractable skull lid and melt into your comfortable couch. Also premiering here on wax is Spiral Wave Nomads, the duo of Hardiman, on guitar, sitar, and bass, and Michael Kiefer (More Klementines), on drums. The trippy twosome trades in soaring, searching, psychedelic sonics that evoke spiritual jazz and Middle Eastern modes ("Floating on a Distant Haze" is a tell-tale track title). To really keep the brain juice flowing, try spinning both these mind-melters back to back. Tie your tether tightly, though.
