***ULAAN MARKHOR is the latest solo moniker for Californian STEVEN R. SMITH’s studio explorations. Spiral Horns, Black Onions, et al. fuses recent itinerant work under the aliases ULAAN KHOL (blistering basement psychedelia) and ULAAN PASSERINE (moody & meditative zones) and unveils a distinctly American version of kosmische, with heavy Levon Helm/Clyde Stubblefield-indebted rhythm & groove replacing motorik pulses. Fluid synth, bass, organ and searing guitar textures—all played by Smith—augment the beats. The result is something akin to The Meters meets Amon Duul II. An exciting new chapter of the ever-evolving Smith. Vinyl only release. Includes a download.
