Oregon-based multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, Arrington de Dionyso, delivers a mind-blowing session of throat-singing, howling horns and thundering drums on "Lovers and Dragons."

Former front man of Old Time Relijun and current leader of Malaikat dan Singa, de Dionyso merges a Beefheartian vocal ability with heavy drones and a bizarre musical sensibility developed from his wide musical, world and astral travelling. This is music that channels La Monte Young via a holiday in Surakarta with Fushitsusha.

Arrington de Dionyso - bass clarinet, contrabass clarinet, contra-alto clarinet, lalove (Sulawesi flute), tarompet (Javanese double reed), shruti box, tape echo, and voice.

Gal Lazer Shiloach - drums and cymbals.

Special guest Graeme Smith - amplified harp.
