"Long Distance Poison present an irresistible concoction of convergent psychedelic and analog electronic energies, everything from a love of nature, and Rothko-like visual aesthetics, to musical influences like Sky Records, John Carpenter soundtracks, minimalism, and a less-hyper Mother Mallard or post-Phaedra Tangerine Dream. They've released some excellent tapes on Ecstatic Peace, Digitalis Limited, VCO Recordings, Constellation Clatsu, Cryptic Carousel and more--releases that capitalize on the band's strength in long-form electronic composition with a wealth of improvisational wiggle-room. There's a "ground" concept for each section of each piece, but that merely serves as a taking-off point for LDP's pulsating extrapolations, typically about 30 minutes in length total, or longer. They've been wowing local Brooklyn audiences for some time now, and part of the fun of their shows is the opportunity to experience the band finding their way in the moment, watching the clay of their ideas take on form and urgency as they go."
