Editors’ Notes

The Brooklyn trio Prince Rama has come a long way since its early punk-infused beginnings. Its 2012 offering Utopia = No Person may at first glance seem like half an EP, with just two listed tracks. Yet both are sprawling psychedelic songs, totaling more than 40 minutes. The set begins by spoofing '80s aerobics (as hinted at on the album artwork) with “Introduction + 15 Minute Workout.” Over dramatic synthesizer drones, sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson harmonize exercise directions with Michael Collins; then the song slowly succumbs to a crumbling sonic decay.
