Press release notes:

With their second album Shogun Kunitoki expand the boundaries of their self-created sonic universe with a wider array of sounds and rhythms. Where their debut, Tasankokaiku, squeezed cosmic dust into fiery balls of molten lava with gravitational push and pull and followed the planets whirring through the void on looping trajectories, Vinonaamakasio zooms in to explore the surface of newfound heavenly bodies, outlines the jagged shapes of exploding volcanoes, rolls with the moonlit waves through the cracks of sleeping, phosphorescent coral reefs, and marches in step with the six-legged insect armies making their trails through the steaming jungle. Every atom of this newborn planet of sound vibrates synchronous to the seething psychedelic stew that throbs under the surface and burns your feet if you let them stop moving.

For those looking for the ultimate psychedelic experience, the Picture LP edition features two animation loops that can be viewed using the Magical Shogun Kunitoki Strobe Light. Please note you need both the Picture vinyl and the strobe light to see the animations.
