VINE SWEETLAND & THE FOREFATHERS OF THE NEW MILLENIUM (Sativa: Single I) MCD
In opposite to the debut album (see review), "Sativa" contains only two short tracks. The same title song is a typical Space Rock songs. Very repetitive and the voice of Vine Sweetland is singing a simple melody. But it's nothing spectacular and not very inspiring for my taste. The second song "Raga Bhanga" is a total different song, filled with Tablas, Sitar, Flute, and Tambura. It's more like an Indian raga with a very peaceful and psychedelic vibe, based on a forceful groove. In September 2002 Vine Sweetland will release the new 19 track album and it would be nice to see, when he would include more songs like "Raga Bhanga". You can listen to this single on Vine's mp3.com website, where you can also get additional fee music and more informations or go to Zemira.
