From the spacial colonization of Aaron Levin:
As I begin my journey east I have begun reflecting upon the westward strangers whose lysergic testaments have shaped my own vision. Paul Marcano, with his ode to a future bursting with space colonies and solar winds, is first in mind. Recorded in his secluded studio outside Victoria, BC, Islands in Space is a testament to the forward-thinking creative consciousness existing within the New Age cosmos. Ragged guitar, searing leads, layered vocals, and dense electronics synthesize Islands in Space into one of the great psychedelic canons of the north. As an experience that begs meditation and continuous listening, I challenge readers to take a dive into Paul’s universe. Islands in Space is a pre-cursor to Lightdreams’ tape-only release 10,001 Dreams.
