Galaxies Turn by Allister Thompson
Infinities is an album of psychedelic folk music first released in 2006. It is comprised of bedroom recordings Allister made from 1999-2001, remastered. The initial release was praised by Terrascope Online: “Featuring some delicately poised vocal overdubs and just the right amount of instrumental ornamentation, the album seems to flow like a river, gently caressing your soul as it talks of the joys and tears of existence, and our place in the universe, the lyrics dealing with melancholy in a sympathetic and beautiful way.”
Influences on the recording were early seventies British singer songwriters like Nick Drake and John Martyn, psychedelic influences like Pink Floyd and the Incredible String Band, Krautrock and and ambient music. The 2014 edition has three bonus tracks, “Somewhere New”, “The Bomber’s Song” and “Spring Hill Fair (for Grant Mclennan)”.
