By means of a transcendent function we gain access to other worlds and avant-ritualists, ITCHY-O, delivers with their new musical work, Mystic Spy | Psykho Dojo. This new concept record is a magnificent vehicle that takes us to other dimensions and launches full throttle into two different deeply abstract worlds.
Following their first two releases (Burn the Navigator and From the Overflowing) on the legendary punk rock label Alternative Tentacles, ITCHY-O decided to release this highly ambitious album on their own new label they are calling Mettle Studios. With 26 musicians and well over 100 tracks on many of the songs, the self-described “savagely sophisticated” experimental orchestra has completely outdone themselves. Along with the seven tracks on the record there are seven 32 second short vignettes that all end in lock-grooves on either side of the vinyl. And as if this is not enough, they have also released, along side of the vinyl, a zine publication titled Idra & Scepter. Once you have figured out the puzzle inside this zine, you can log in to an interactive site that allows you to not only listen to the digital version of the lock-grooves but also layer, record, and download your own versions.
As the title implies, Mystic Spy | Psykho Dojo explores two themes:
The first (Side A): A realm of esoteric trickery and espionage
The second (Side B): An alternate universe of deep martialed psychic discipline.
