Ashtray Navigations is the main project of Phil Todd, who makes noisy psychedelic improvisation that has strong krautrock connotations to it.

Those Are Pearls That Were His Eyes is the umpteenth release by AN, and is in keeping with their style of long drawn psych wonderings. This album consists of one nearly fifty minute "song" consisting of nothing but oure trippyness. It starts out with a Nurse With Wound influence, with what could easily random pots, pans, spoons, and other assorted kitchenware, being banged around at random, set against an ambient backdrop of a recording of birds and light and airy synth dronings. As the song progresses, the kitchenware goes away, and gets replaced by some guitar dronings and scratches, with the ever constant airy synths. This rather noisy section then suddenly transitions into some lone, floating type guitar playing.

This album is not for the casual Prog fan, but for fans of the noisy side of Psych and Kraut, this album is a treat.

Sheavy | 4/5 |
