iTunes Review

Starting from the already lofty heights of their debut, Are You Shpongled?, Tales of the Inexpressible expands Sphongle’s sonic palette to include rhythms and melodies from around the world, including flamenco guitar, African drumming, and Latin percussion. Densely packed and endlessly intriguing, Simon Posford (aka Hallucinogen) and Raja Ram segue smoothly from one idea to another to create a seamless work that merges many styles and textures and bursts with imagination and energy. Acoustic guitar and cello blend with drum and bass loops and snippets of synthesizer, as Ram’s inspired flute playing soars above the psychedelic mix (and in addition, the brief “Flute Fruit” proves a fitting outro to the album). Vocals are featured on some of the songs, including the gorgeous voice of Abigail Gordon who provides one of the album’s dreamiest passages on “Once Upon a Sea of Blissful Awareness.” Lush, cohesive, and immaculately crafted, Tales of the Inexpressible is nothing short of breathtaking.

Customer Reviews

Lush, layered, infectious, inventive, trippy, polished, beautiful & uninhibited...

Place the best of The Orb, Juno Reactor, Orbital, Yello, Pink Floyd, and Cirque du Soleil in a musical blender, mix it up - that's Shpongle. It's criminal that they are not more popular.


I have listened to God knows how many electronic songs over the years, and know my way around world music and dance fairly well... these guys are great. They take classical and earthy elements, mix them with delicately interwoven themes on psychonautical exploration, and throw out the previous extent of where computer enhanced music can be taken... the tribal rhythms and swaying sections of multi-faceted melody are totally entrancing. Nothin' quite like this anywhere else!! I wish I could have a session with these guys. Thanks, Simon and Raja!!

Trippy Terrific

This album is amazing. It defies any generic lable and is a good example of "Ambioelecticworld" music. Very tasty tunes.


Genre: Electronic

Years Active: '90s

Simon Posford and Raja Ram are Shpongle, an ambient techno/trance project formed in 1996 after the pair viewed a solar eclipse in India. The duo went into the studio and attempted to duplicate the experience in sonic form, and the result was a 20-minute track, "...And the Day Turned to Night," which was featured on a Twisted label compilation...
