The View from Nowhere

Matt Carlson, 2016

I wouldn't call The View from Nowhere psychedelic, more psychotropic. It's methods are more scientific than freewheeling and hippy. Odd, since Matt Carlson's other project is Golden Retriever, which definitely taps into ambient mysticism. There's no need for pharmaceutical enhancement with this songs, though: each one zeros on a dizzying audio effect only to dive deeper in. The View sits Carlson at the table with the likes of Ben Vida or Mark Fell.
