Raccoo-oo-oon- "Is Night People" LP Review

Raccoo-oo-oon – Is Night People

   Iowa's Raccoo-oo-oons first cassette, “Is Night People” draws to mind a diverse fountain of inspirations, from an air of archaic shamanism to colorfully mastered vibrations. The record shifts from melodious guitars backed by electronic noises, & percussion ranging from tribal beats to rhythmic jams.  As for the vocal style, it switches from clean to chaotic & even delves into chanting. You'll even find shards of jazz in this gem flowing through the veins of the spastic saxophone playing delivered on tracks like “The Great Horn of the Wilderness”. This unique experiment will open your ears to the past, present, & future of sound.
