    *Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* The music contained in an Eternal Tapestry record elicits the exact same comparisons that you would assume from such a name: albums steeped in druggy psychedelia and meandering jams with hints of stoner-rock guitar riffs and spacey vibes. It's a style that's been done before – from Hawkwind and Ash Ra Tempel to Sleep and Bardo Pond – but always sounds best in a live setting at maximum volume. With "Dawn in 2 Dimensions," the quintet that comprises Eternal Tapestry attempts to do exactly that. After spending a year playing these four songs at gigs, the resulting recording has a live feeling that gives a spacious, liquid quality to the music. This rounds all the frayed guitar edges and intermittent aggressive tendencies, but the strong rhythm section on "Dawn in 2 Dimensions" locks down all the grooves to let the group's leftfield indulgences flow freely, particularly on the 21 minute closer. – Ryan Potts, Experimedia ---After the dark conceptual ambience of Beyond the 4th Door, the members of Eternal Tapestry decided the time was right to do an album embracing their live show - blistering psych rock filled with lyrical guitar soloing and a caveman approach to rhythm, an oddly euphoric state where melancholia is blasted by ecstatic noise. Compiled from a variety of sessions at Tapestry Space throughout the spring of 2011 (some of this material first found a home on the two fall tour tapes), this set of songs has been the foundation for the past year of Eternal Tapestry gigs.

    The album kicks off with "Wholeodome", an amphetamine rush that keeps the locked groove in full tilt boogie mode. Saxophone, guitar, and bass triple up on the unrelenting theme recalling Space Ritual era Hawkwind. The song finds the band seeking enlightenment via crushing volume and dank fuzz. A bit of vocal bleed splices into "Bread of Dreams", an ode to ergot tainted rye. Melody serves as the perfect backdrop for classic dual guitar interplay. The band never strays far from the melodic core of this serene jam, keeping the vibe focused until it fades into a strange sound collage of wildly panning African field recordings and pastoral fingerpicking. The side ends with the epic "Marrow of the Wand", an organic cosmic music taking the listener on a journey through far reaching realms of imagination.

    Side B is one continuous piece of music played live, with the band hitting three distinct sections. Starting with the slow burner "I.S.F.S.", the band builds in wave after wave of screaming wah'd intensity. A brief change of gear launches the band into the second section, the title track "Dawn in 2 Dimensions". After hitting on a natural motorik Kraut pulse, the sounds climb infinitely higher into a pummeling cacophony of dark noise. Once the band hits the third phase, "Quantum Leap", everyone settles into a sleazy Stooges swagger bringing the album to a close with some trashy skronk, burning bright in a far out galaxy.

    Eternal Tapestry are currently working on a new studio full-length due out in late 2012.
