Hailing from San Francisco, CA (and featuring members of Tarentel and Tsui), Rumah Sakit (pronounced like Room-Uh-Sock-Eeet!) create a head-swirling excercise in progressive rock intuition. A six track blend of prog, classic jazz, and contemporary pop that floats in and out of everything from 'Bitches Brew'-era Miles Davis to King Crimson. No fucking overdubs, no cheap studio tricks, and no mistakes. Uncompromising and totally beautiful. Proof that aggression and maudlin melodies can happily co-exist. The much heavier vinyl format comes in a handsome gatefold sleeve with a free full-color foldout poster. For the same price as the CD! Now that's beautiful.
