Hash Jar Tempo – Well Oiled (1997)
Hash Jar Tempo is an experimental collaborative effort between psycho-delic quintet Bardo Pond and strings expert Roy Montgomery who produce hallucinogenic post-rock music and Well Oiled is their somewhat acclaimed drug-fueled improvisation sessions. These jams are driven by the extroverted and expansive sonic capabilities of a finely-tuned guitar (as curated by Roy Montgomery in his solo works) and glaze and weave in circles until the listener is lost and baffled in this revolution of strummed sounds, so much so that the music almost acts as a drug itself in terms of sitting perplexed and rapt in this labyrinth of foreign notes and noises. Well Oiled is collection of entrancing recordings that will leave you inspired and bemused.
