Prana Crafter / Rupture of Planes
by Prana Crafter
Prana Crafter is William Sol, a (more-or-less) one-man band hailing from America’s great Pacific Northwest, and ‘Rupture of Planes’ is his second CD release of heavily forested psychedelic goodness. In keeping with the Eastern wisdom traditions referenced by the band name, to the extent this new album ruptures any planes it’s with the larger goal of embodying their differences on some higher level: Incorporating both songs and instrumentals, recorded at home as well as a professional studio, all alone or with backing, sweetly heartfelt balladry alongside shamanic guitar overload, classic psych-rock roots in experimental/lo-fi settings, deep woods ruggedness right next to dressed-up arrangements, electric intensity sharing space with blissed-out serenity, third-eye visions with dirt underneath their fingernails. Twelve tracks, 62 minutes.
