So apparently Prince Rama has written ten new hits to accompany the upcoming end of the world. The band has put together a pseudo-compilation album for their latest effort "Top Ten Hits of the End of the World" (released by Paw Tracks ... Avey Tare's label) set to hit the cosmos November 6th.
The two sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson have decided to cover various songs from otherwise fictional bands that highlight our pending doom in what can best be described as one of the most exciting aural acid trips you're ready to take this year. Lead track and apocalypse anthem "Welcome to the Now World" should already be familiar to children that grew up singing this song in schools... or at least they did in this band's parallel universe. Complete with old style electronic effects referring of the fictional computer-generated band (Hyparxia) that Prince Rama are supposedly channeling, the song produces a space-age effect hypnotic enough to help you conjure up some new Gods to pray to.
One of the most fascinating freak groups to come up in Brooklyn in quite some time, the band recently mesmerized us at their CMJ performance and will be back in NYC in December from their international tour with label-mates Animal Collective. - Mike Levine (@Goldnuggets)
