Channelers - They are Cloaked in Stars and Rivers

The Inner Islands label continues to release beautiful sounds in accordance to the ceremonial beat within Channelers, one in the newest batch. They are Cloaked in Stars and Rivers is over a half hour of brilliant ancestral tunes, emanating deep within the pine needle laden floored forest. The simple grandeur of the four tracks are played in deference to the energy and ancientness of the surrounding verdure.

The genre of music created by Channelers is unclassifiable for me. I can summarize the feeling the cassette imparts upon the listener; a sense of well being. Each track is unique in it's composition and all of the tracks are cohesive together. There is no testing of your listening patience on They are Cloaked in Stars and Rivers. This is entirely refreshing when stacked with the multitude of harrowing sounds being created today, proving grounds of how far we are willing to traverse into despair. Channelers is on the majestic high plateau, sparkling with exquisiteness, guiding the listener to tranquility.

If I heard this tape with out knowing what label it was on, Inner Islands would be in my top choices. This cassette rests in the wheel house for the label. With a medium amount of internet searching effort, I could not find any background information on Channelers. This is fitting because possibly the composers were just the medium for the sounds they captured on this tape. Not sure on how many Inner Islands produced on this run. Many of their releases are sold out, so there is definitely finite numbers. This is a lustrously finespun composition providing listening companionship for your consciousness!
