4 stars I suppose this Cloudland Canyon/Lichens "Exterminating Angel", 2007 release striked it big in the PA's P/E curators minds as to open a whole Cloudland Canyon/Lichens archive for this EP collaboration. (Lichens, by the way has his own solo discography). I myself would have set it alongside the other already archived collaborator "Cloudland Canyon", but this is just a suggestion.

Anyway to where it matters the music! This project blends the Cloudland's 60's hippie touch/Bay area school's electro/acoustics with Lichens unconventional and darker electronic ones, adding up for an almost perfect blend between both idioms.

A one track EP, which could actually be divided into 4 detectable compositions which account for their own structure and instrumentation, thus making for a quiet surprising ride. This collaboration is balanced yet both musical worlds are detected as single entities or as two, nice!

Haunting, surprising and exciting. As it runs each section seems to outdo the previous one. Kind of raw here and there but the music composition, different sections and its inherent EP's briefness (31:48) saves the day entirely.

****4 PA stars.
