"Ancient Homies" is the third full-length album by lespecial. Conceptually "Ancient Homies" deals with themes of travel throughout different planes, both physical and meta-physical. Lyrically it explores concepts of "boundaries" and how one can transport themselves, either physically across the infinite vastness of space, or mentally to a different mental plane, as we believe the best musical pieces to do. The other-worldly quality of music is echoed in samples from 50's and 60's sci-fi/horror films such as "The Thing From Another World" and "Quatermass and the Pit". The quotes from these films that deal with unearthing ancient, primordial secrets act as a through line throughout the Homie Improv Interludes. This album captures the qualities and sides of our band that we feel best represents ourselves and our music. There are moments of intensity, darkness and heaviness that call to our influences in the prog world such as Tool and King Crimson, exemplified by our mixing engineer Dave Sanchez at Riffs or Die, as well as more sub-heavy, head nodding tunes that nod to some of our favorite electronic artists like Flying Lotus and Nine Inch Nails.
