Annapurna Illusion - Life Is An Illusion

In the highs of the Nepalese mountains, the spirits of the dead are alive and well, their mantra’s chant atop mossy ruined temples to the Kosmische jams brewed by the melted soul of the mysterious Annapurna Illusion.

Rocket Recordings are proud to introduce the pyramidal meditationist ‘Life is an Illusion’ album by France’s Annapurna Illusion, the evil twin of Not Not Fun’s High Wolf.

Annapurna Illusion's dark Krautrock aesthetic reveal itself in tracks showered in shamanic dust and rolled tight in a soupy, psychedelic batter. Life is an Illusion is scattered with fizzing electric guitars and ambient ragas which unfurl with the might of a psychedelic blizzard, fogging the sponges of the brain and eyeballs with a wash of hallucinations where Ash Ra Temple
jam for hours on end with Loop.

Tropical repetitive rhythms drone and drift, guided by a swarm of breezy effects and celestial layered synths that engulf the base of the mountain in hypnotic swirls of colourful head spinning rituals before zipping airborne to glide in a state of tranced euphoria.

Escapism is bottled and prescribed with each dose of these 6 entrancing mysteries, Life is an Illusion draws from the same smoke filled breath as fellow explorers Emeralds, Stellar Om Space, Dylan Ettinger as well as those great Kosmische artists, AR Machines, Klaus Schulze and Harmonia.

Proceed from the dream outward and encounter the Annapurna cinerama in its full illusion.
