Conceived as a soundtrack to composer Mike Smith's adolescent fantasy life, Invocation/Transformations finds the intricate minimalist textures and banjo mathematics of Muskox's previous releases regarbed in the electric finery of early 70s prog rock and the Canterbury scene.

Muskox Jr. was the first piece written for this project. The title refers to the scaled down instrumentation of the band, and likely should have been replaced at some point. The core of this tune was written while lounging on a hotel bed in Shibuya in a dreamy haze of jet lag mixed with hangover. Aside from a little bit of Yes, the material and structure of this tune is all derived from the mathematical relationship between the guitar and banjo ostinatos.

I was losing hope in finding new music that I would like. This was very pleasantly refreshing.
Richard Larcombe's guitar work is great, love the atmospheres, which are somewhat dark at least to my ears - in spite of the funny lyrics, which without a booklet I unfortunately cannot fully appreciate, not being a native speaker and not having the best English listening skills.
They instantly became one of my favorite bands. Gold. ale38
