Over a decade since it's inception, Wave Temples continues to refine and refract the project's visionary mythopoetic exotica. Panama Shift presents a 20-track kaleidoscopic star map inspired by "the euphoric cults, both then and now, that come and go in the vast ritual of night." Bleached keys, devotional synth, and driftwood percussion align in minimalist vignettes shaded by tape hiss and field recordings of streams, waves, wind, and birds. Dedicated to the late Japanese-born American anthropologist Yosihiko H. Sinoto (whose portrait graces the cover), famed for his excavations throughout the Pacific and French Polynesia, the album embodies a similarly voyaging spirit: "chasing ancient mysteries... and rekindling with the esoteric journey of the human spirit." This is music of forgotten shores, sea air, and saltwater shrines, echoing in shells scattered across the altars of Atlantis.
