"The Buried Civilizations perform strange Summerian liturgical music, perhaps found in the listening room in the ancient library at Alexandria or in a crumbling turret in Old Germany. Mysterious but semi-structured song-forms emerge from organ, guitar, flute, banjo & vocal explorations."
NOTE: co-released with Jewelled Antler.
"Kerry McLaughlin and Glenn Donaldson (Jewelled Antler) play strange liturgical folk music, sometimes in song form and sometimes an elegaic exotic instrumental meander - highly recommended" Boa Melody Bar
"Contemporary hippie folk. This is nothing special, just another drop in the ocean of current oversupply of this kind of music. There's nice guitar playing (by a guest performer I guess) on one track, but otherwise this is so mediocre that it hurts. The cover picture shows a deformed kitten or something (I think it's either a picture manipulation or maybe a bizarre work of art by a taxidermist which would be cool). If a noise band put that kind of pic on their record cover they'd be called animal abusers and accused of recycling the same overused ideas, but on a hippie album cover it seems to be perfectly ok." Pekka PT, Dilettante's Digest
"This one on the 267 Lattajjaa imprint been mentioned before by Mark and FoxyD, received a copy of it myself this morning and I've got to say that bar The Ivytree Winged leaves album this is one of the best Jewelled Antler projects I've heard to date. 14 quite short tracks of mainly instrumental acoustic folk pieces that sound centuries old, backed with some haunting organ sounds. A bit more in the way of melody compared to something like the Franciscan Hobbies, and there are some occasional very distant vocals from Donaldson that drift in now and again, very mystical and very psychedelic on the whole so this one gets a massive thumbs up from yours truly. Also like the fact that the tracks are quite short and numerous so the ideas aren't laboured and repeated to much, lots to enjoy basically. Some great taxidermy on the back sleeve too, featuring the three eyed two mouthed kitten, very strange indeed." Hidden Door
"Tunnels to Other Chambers is the first full-length from The Buried Civilizations, a new Jewelled Antler off-shoot featuring Donaldson and Kerry McLaughlin. I've often wondered whether these artists were influenced by encounters with ethnomusicological recordings: Tunnels to Other Chambers repeatedly works up raga forms, laying ritual movements out on a bed of mossy drones. At other points, the Buried Civilizations are more theatrical: "People of the Land" is Morricone on Quaaludes, and "Lily of the Hills" sounds like an open-air séance bled to tape during early takes on the Wicker Man film."
