Alchemical Playschool is easily one of the most unusual LEGENDARY PINK DOTS albums ever released. Based on the LP and double CD Indian Soundscapes these recordings are best enjoyed with a cold glass of Bhang Ki Thandai, following which the operation of heavy equipment or motor vehicles is strongly discouraged. Yes, this a trippy, psychedelic album, in the tradition of earlier Chemical Playschool albums, but it’s been dusted with magical powders from The Orient, making it an altogether different experience from its predecessors. As experimental and esoteric works go, this is the band’s definitive work. The album was conceived at the end of the the Dots' 2004 North American tour. EDWARD KA-SPEL met with Soleilmoon owner CHARLES POWNE, who had recently returned from a stay in India. Charles gave Edward a copy of his Indian Soundscapes album, and invited him to take the material and use it in a new Dots recording. The resulting music borrows lightly from the source material, deftly blends it with the band’s signature electronic wizardry, and distills a potent brew redolent with the aromas of saffron, cardamom and flowers. We think you’ll find it both irresistible and unforgettable. The first edition of Alchemical Playschool was released on May 8, 2006, as a CD box set limited to 400 copies. It sold out in a matter of weeks. This vinyl edition, limited to 250 copies, is presented in a deluxe silkscreened gatefold folder made of recycled sugarcane fiber, with a full-color 9.5 x 20-inch (24 x 51 cm) poster. Each record is kept in its own handmade marigold flower petal-infused, plastic lined sleeve.
