It's an exquisite feeling, to taste the truth, to let it wrap you completely, to feel it's ecstatic warmth, to let it ripple through you, to let you feel life with every breath, as if day and night are colliding, and sparks exploding, and the sky turning deep red, and night falls like a blanket, and the wind is a soft whisper, and the dune grass are like blades, piercing blackness.
Ensemble Economique is Brian Pyle of Starving Weirdos and RV Painting. His solo project (hence the slightly ironic moniker) has previously released a CD on Digitalis in 2008 and two recent LP's on Amish and Not Not Fun Records. His music is highly narrative and cinematic mixing synth loops and electronic rhythms with epic organic structures. Crossing The Pass, By Torchlight is the culmination of Pyle's previous works presenting his most refined album so far.

I am a big fan of music with psychedelic tendencies as long as melodies and harmonies are not completely buried under tons of distorted guitars and weird noises.
This album nails it for me. Very easy to listen to and a good balance between mystical psych-soundscapes, acid-folk and slow hypnotic grooves. Papa Jay (Radio Smorgasbord)
