    Two thirds of seminal didj-fusion band Lights In A Fat City meet the master atmos-technician for a journey into soundworlds of corporeal adventure and probing ambiences. HALCYON DAYS, so named for the two-week period of prosperity and creativity reached when the spell cast by the angel Alcyon is broken, finds Roach, Newby, and Kent reaching into the very matter of their respective noisemakers (analog and digital electron machines, didjs, ocarinas, samplers, p'iri, bonang, and much more).
    The musicians extract the inviting and invigorating rhythmic equivalents of shamanistic snake charmers, reptiles strolling in the underbrush, and the grand observations of nomads drinking deeply of the expansive vistas of rock and sky surrounding them. Recorded amid the rugged terrain of Tucson, during a particularly tranquil time, HALYCON DAYS is magnetic and almost narcotic. Roach's teeming electronic curls and Newby & Kent's feral percussives are hypnotic. Don't let the mordant power of HALCYON DAYS, a somewhat overlooked title in the Roach canon, pass you by.
