Long Distance Poison present an irresistible concoction of convergent psychedelic and analog electronic energies, everything from a love of nature to musical influences like Sky Records, John Carpenter soundtracks, minimalism, and a less-hyper Mother Mallard or post-Phaedra Tangerine Dream. There's a "ground" concept for each section of each piece, but that merely serves as a taking-off point for LDP's pulsating extrapolations. They've been wowing local Brooklyn audiences for some time now, and part of the fun of their shows is the opportunity to experience the band finding their way in the moment, watching the clay of their ideas take on form and urgency as they go.
--by Wm. Berger, host of "My Castle of Quiet" on radio WFMU.
LDP is Nathan Cearley, Erica Bradbury, and Casey Block.
