“I can never spell Ekca Liena right. I always spell one of the words wrong and then I have to go and correct myself. There’s only nine characters in there as well so it’s not hard. The urge to put the C before the K is strong….The last Ekca CD blew my face off and we gave it album of the week… We sold out in a day!! Here is his proper follow up album called Sleep Paralysis on the Dead Pilot label. The album lulls you into a false sense of security with the opener being a warm floaty drone track sucking you into it’s niceness before track two (‘Ceiling Ghosts’) comes in with some dark droney forboding pulsing fuzz which will have you caked in fecal fun. It’s intense stuff alright. the production is amazing and it becomes completely clear on ‘Heavy Weather’ where some backwards guitar intertwines with some melodic electronics to stunning effect. Later in the track some thunderously loud drums come in and it’s starting to remind me a of track from Boards of Canada’s Geogaddi. That is until the walls of guitars which have slowly built up hit you in the face like a hammer shapped fist. The whole album has a dark feel to it…. like there’s some evil presence hanging around. I think fans of Sunn O))), Utech etc will like this as there’s a metal influence in there lurking ‘n all. It’s a damned special album! Comes in a diecut cardboard gatefold sleeve limited to 250 copies! CD only!!”
