We’re pleased to help bring into existence the second full-length release by Philadelphia’s Enumclaw (in our world known as Norm Fetter; mainstay of space-rock champs Niagara Falls, he’s also been spotted playing with Golden Ball, Espers, and other Brotherly Love notables), following up last year’s lovely Opening of the Dawn on Honeymoon records. Compared with that LP, which received deserved praise for its vintage-style spiritual cosmic psychedelia, this new disc dials in the focus to a more tightly refined palette of gently buzzing, asynchronously looping, edgily insinuating patterns of synthesized tone generation. And while it’s easy to imagine this having great appeal for fans of the best current electro-drone artists (Oneohtrix Point Never, Emeralds, etc.), Painted Valley of the Mineral Monks also has an extension chord/psychic umbilicus plugged directly into the prime circuits of late-70s synthesizer pulsations, sounding not unlike the soundtrack to some lost educational film about ancient astronauts, astral projection and LSD as composed by Eno, Moebius and Roedelius. Five tracks, 32 minutes.

All songs/sounds performed, composed and recorded by Norman Fetter. Mastered by Sam Cusumano and Norman Fetter
