Stepping ashore on an undiscovered island, a Roland SP202 Sampler as their Bible, Swim Ignorant Fire scrap together tools from the wilderness including field recordings, bass guitar and wild animals - this is a missionary trip gone wrong. Beginning as an esoteric diary of one man’s adventure through uncharted territory, polyrhythmic delay shifts and lo fi grindhouse charm transform into a haunting psychedelic soundtrack of Muslimgauze proportions. Loops of African Juju Witchcraft Dance, Chants from India, and Exotic Percussion record grooves swirl together to become Bufo Alvarious, named after the psychedelic properties of the Sonoran Desert toad. By turns comforting and daunting, this album by Swim Ignorant Fire veers from a warm sanctuary of light to a dense fog of hostile territory. You won’t return the same.
