"Six Ways To Avoid The Evil Eye"
by Ed Yazijian
Limited Edition Lp by One Tree (2007)
Released on Limited Edition CDR originally on Feed and Seed Records (2006)
"Wanted to make the world aware of a new release of vinyl called Six Ways To Avoid The Evil Eye. This album is a reissue of a super limited CDR from last year. These are mysterious recordings that seem to be immersed in an innerspace composed entirely of serious reverb jello, all instrumental-style with loads of tabla and slide guitar and international / continental / other worldly instruments & sounds. The artist is Dr. E'weerd Yijji (aka Ed Yazijian) who should be known for his work with serious folks like Dredd Foole and Pete Prescott (Mission of Burma, Volcano Suns) and many others(not to mention occasional live performances with the mighty Sun City Girls). This is his first solo release." Ed is a teacher of Asian Studies in South Carolina and spent a number of years living in Bangladesh.
This is deffinatly the best modern psych eastern drone album I've heard in years.
Its available as a limited edition Lp... Go out and buy it, its a real gem!
The limited edition Lp is available Here,
update: Ed is also a current member of Hildegard, and if you ain't got no turntable, you can still buy a lovely handmade cdr version (the cover is amazing!!!), plus many other delightful treats at www.feedandseedrecords.com
