Pelt - Ayahuasca (2001)

Raga-inspired psychedelic drone performed on a pleasingly broad palette of instruments. I've never taken ayahuasca, but I once knew someone who believed in its supposed healing powers, started taking it regularly, formed an ayahuasca-themed band, and ended up living a fully ayahuasca-centric lifestyle in the jungles of Peru. Last I heard she was training to be a shaman. So, if her experience is any indicator, it's pretty fuckin' sweet.

Track listing:
-Disc One-
1. True Vine
2. Deer Head Apparition
3. The Cuckoo
4. Deep Sunny South
5. Raga Called John, Pt. I
-Disc Two-
1. The Dream of Leaping Sharks
2. Bear Head Apparition
3. Will You Pray for Me?
4. Raga Called John, Pt. II
5. Raga Called John, Pt. III
