Brain Laughter is a five-person group inspired by Carlos Castaneda and the majesty of the Sonoran desert in southern Arizona and northern Mexico. From the wonderful cover painting of a desert sunset, complete with coyote, eagle and saguaro cactus under a fading red sky, to the shamanistic song titles, this is an album that seeks to evoke a sense of magic and awe. The largely electronic music is both melodic and atmospheric, skillfully executed if not especially unique. Reminiscent at times of Jon Mark's style or the popular Canadian release by Calverly, Celtic Mysteries, Brain Laughter offers this work in tribute to wide-open spaces.
