ai giri nandini

Hey! From the self-financed, mainly acoustic, Baked Goods release touting "several devotional songs composed and/or adapted by Mascis and dedicated to Hindu religious leader Mata Amritanandamayi, or Ammachi, whom Mascis is a devoted follower of."*

Recorded, one assumes, at Bob's Place (studio) in Amherst, Massachusetts.

From Surefire Distribution:

'"Ayi Giri Nandini," is a metalized version of a Sanskrit hymn by Adi Shankaracharya. Written around 1300 years ago, the hymn sings the glories of the Divine Mother as she slaughters the demonic forces of Mahisha Asura, the Buffalo Demon.'

Featuring a searing guitar solo, as the pace heats up a tad we are also treated to some primeval drumming even Rat Scabies would be proud to bring to the table. Play loud and get your blood circulating.
