"Also" is the second Lake Mary cassette released by Wounded Knife and at the same time the second album where no guitar was used (at least in the common way). Here Chaz Prymek teamed up with Nathan Wheeler, member of the "live band" incarnation of LM: Lake Mary & the Ranch Family Band. Their modest but inspiring approach resulted in two side-long compositions combining elements of classical, minimalist drones and gentle synthesizer waves - just two guys deeply inspired by Charlemagne Palestine, La Monte Young and all the other minimalist masters chilling out in a forest cabin. The perfect uplifting record.

Concise and hauntingly beautiful. Someone already mentioned Nico. It’s probably no coincidence that BEB reissued the album by Caroline K in the same year. Another point of reference that comes to my mind is A.C. Marias. Excellent. Stefan Karolewicz
