Waardering: ****


In the category you ask, we play we are about to fulfill a request from a lovely little curly head from Budapest. She asked about the Human Beans record by Earthlings?. You know, the group from Palm Desert who manifested itself for the first time in 1994. Dave Catching, Fred Drake, Pete Stahl, Franz Stahl, Chris Bratton, Kirby Brownell, Josh Homme, Mark Lanegan, Dave Grohl, Barrett Martin, Victoria Williams, Petra Harden, Ted Quinn, Dave Royer, Al Bloch, Hank Kimball, Dally The D, Hutch, Jason Cohen, Abby Travis, John Dee Graham, Billy Bizeau, Barry Conley, Spot, Mary(19) and DNA(25), whoever those last two might be, lend their crafts for this album. O’ and then their is help from Robert Alexander (The guy from Come Wander With Me) as a sample in the song Lifeboat. So a very colorful selection of free spirits who gave their all on a few empty tapes. As a genuine Desert Sessions record the album was recorded over a period of a few years and during several long lasting sessions at the Rancho De La Luna. Released in five different versions but all with the warning that these subsonic frequencies have, in some cases, caused euphoria and hallucinations in listeners, the album is almost impossible to describe. It’s mysterious, heroic and full of glamour. It’s estranging, astonishing, stunning, stirring and completely deranged. A beautiful record to float to and experiment. Let the creative juices flow… Let it flow…
