3 stars Born during krautrock's explosion at the beginning of the 70's Siloah deserves an interest for fans of psychedelic folk music. With a delicate free form sound the band delivers catchy, sometimes dreamy like songs for acoustic instruments, dominated by guitars and percussions. The "acid" folk mention reminds me some good kraut-folk items (Amon Duul's Paradieswarts Duul, Kalacakra's Crawling to Lhasa, Hoelderlin's Traum.), featuring "ethno-psychedelic", simplistic poetic romance and stoned vocals. "Yellow puppets" is a short "pastoral" piece for acoustic guitar & percussions, quite charming. "Krishna Golden Dope Show" is more into a "hippie" like trip, a bit old dated but it sounds nice, very folk with gorgeous peaceful effects, "monotonous" vocals and soft chorus. "Road to Larany" is a brilliant bluesy acoustic folk ballad. "Acid Eagle" is a freak out repetitive tune for ethnic like percussions and stringed instruments. "Alluminum winds" is a rather dark "acid" folk composition with not real coherence and no real sense of composition. Nice floating flute lines punctuated the ensemble. The new Garden of delights CD reissue contains bonus tracks & a full booklet of notes and photos. Not the best German "stoned" folk item but a few amazing atmospheres.
