Imaginary Falcons, which predates the masterful 936 album by two years, finds Indra Dunis and Aaron Coyes still tinkering with their style. The record is rooted in noise-pop and guitar-soaked drone rather than groovy weirdo dance pop. It's still trippy and psychedelic, however. The 11-minute "Wedding Song" releases a pungent and thoroughly exotic odor, Turkish opium dens and sinister strangers lurking at your vision's blurry periphery. "New News" and "Owls Barking" are two more extended cuts, both of which are equally hypnotic. The latter piece is a swim through true cosmic euphoria.
