While legend Sun Ra can sometimes appeal to only the most obsessive of free jazz enthusiasts, this new two-track 7" is undoubtedly something that will blow any sort of music fan into smithereens. We mean that as a good thing, of course. Modern Harmonic have got it spot on here: the first is the opener from 1959's The Nubians Of Plutonia LP, the supremely funky, tripped-out jazz licks of "Plutonian Nights, while the flipside consists of the first part of "Reflects Motion", a sixties abstraction with a much heavier injection of brekbeats, and Ra's notable experimentation with electronics. This is an unmissable EP.
