The post hypnotic world of "Gilgamesh" by Nature's Neighbor is a stunning

Gilgamesh by Nature's Neighbor is utterly hypnotic in it's over-reaching scope. The sound, aesthetic... ? What can I say, the track orbits in a Pink Floyd-ian way, it swims and plays in seas of Radiohead, Miles Davis, Super Furry Animals, Airbag and The Alan Parson's Project. At 9 minutes long, Gilgamesh might seem like the epicenter of the "Ur" album, a vast album of alter egos of shoegaze, psychedelia, prog rock, indie rock and experimental chamber pop. 

Nature's Neighbor hails from Chicago and is more than a band but more like an art collective bringing together the talents of Seth Engel (Options), Nnamdi Ogbonnaya, Sen Morimoto and others as curated and conducted by the artistic heart and mind of Mike Walker.
