First vinyl release of Ak'chamel after a prolific cassette discography, The Totemist is a deep psychedelic-folk album hinted by mysticism, some of which was written and recorded in a ghost-town in the Chihuahuan Desert in far West Texas - a place where the dead outnumber the living. Various overdubs and field recordings were captured in the historic Terlingua cemetery : an ancient burial ground filled with small grottoes and graves made of sticks and stones. This being the final resting place for miners who succumbed from illnesses derived from the toxic rare-earth element known as mercury.
Ak’chamel, The Giver of Illness are fourth world post-colonial cultural cannibalists circumcising the foreskin of enlightenment. Performing in homemade costumes and masks, they have played festivals in various cities around the U.S gaining international attention from Vice, The Wire, Tiny Mix Tapes, Consequence of Sound, and many more. Enter the fourth world now !

Ich überleg die ganze Zeit schon was ich schreiben daß sich möglichst klug und kulturell anhört 😂 ist einfach gute Musik.
Lieblingssongs: alle haben ihre Berechtigung, aber die Covers von Oy Oy Emine und Dom Dom Kurşunu gehen ins Ohr.
Cover Empfehlung an die Band “Müdür Beyin yeşil Kürkü”
Werde versuchen euch mal Live zu erleben!
This is the first JK Flesh album I've absolutely loved. It's Basic Channel, Detroit and Birmingham techno with a power electronics-informed grittiness and intensity that is all JKB. Also, while it is brilliantly crafted and texturally interesting, it also has a raw, tossed-off quality, as if it were recorded live. JAH
