Middle Kingdom are a couple Boston bros making some weird psyched out droney shit. They’ve got an upcoming tape on the essential Sacred Phrases due sometime this summer, and “Adorned In Flowers Like A Mantle Of Stars” is one of the songs from it. It’s a 12 minute stereo burner, an expansive murky mild freakout, jungle chirps sparring with sun crisped feedback, prolonged panning chords ringing through the distant corners of the universe, thick space dust soup bubbling up from the Great Beyond, a total wash of tones n drones, blurred at the edges with a white hot center.

Definitely some killer jams coming from these guys. Keep an eye out for that Sacred Phrases tape but if you can’t wait, they’ve got a sweet demo with this track and a few other goodies new & old. Certainly worthwhile, I’d definitely recommend picking it up if you’re so inclined.
