El cuarteto originario de Los Angeles Red Temple Spirits mezclo habilidosamente la influencia del post-punk (cure, savage garden,early deadcult) con una adorable dosis de pshycodelia (syd barrett and roky erickson).El bajista Dino y el Guitarrista Dallas Tylor. incursionaban zumbidos entrantes y pulsos a sus instrumentos, asi como el uso de ecos y otros efectos, mientras el shamanistico lider William Faircloth ( un colorido inmigrante britanico originario del movimiento psicodelico de los 60's) clavado en el misticismo (nativo americano en su primer disco, tibetano en el segundo) con una gran pasion y gracia rara vez vista
Dancing to restore an eclipse moon es un sorprendente debut. El lujoso empaque (doble LP/Cd sencillo) el cuidadoso espejo puesto en la musica, cuales deliciosas flautas incorporadas, campanas, sonidos naturales (agua, pajaros) para crear una atmosfera emcabezada por un ritual de extasis.Pequeñas composiciones pegajosas como "dark spirits" y "dreamings ending" alternan con varias piezas complejas y largas.
El album siguiente es mucho mas directo, tanto musicalmente como liricamente, que se desencadeno en una externa/ambiental stimulacion. asi como la cristalizacion de la hermosa "dive in deep" y un incandecente cover de la cancion de pink floyd "set the controls for a heart of the sun" un tema de esperansa por la magia y la belleza de la vida in la cara de los remedos de la desesperacion. previo a RTS Faircloth participo en un trio de psicodelico junto a mark Nine.aun con la carencia de la brillante quimica que tenia con Res temple Spirtis, hubo grandiosos momentos en el EP de 5 pistas, incluyendo, "Living in the moment" y la balada compuesta por faircloth "you're not on your own"

English Version:
Los Angeles quartet Red Temple Spirits skillfully mix post-punk influences - mid-period Cure, Savage Republic, early (Death) Cult - with a loving dose of lysergic psychedelia (Syd Barrett and Roky Erickson are particular touchstones). Bassist Dino Paredes and guitarist Dallas Taylor coax entrancing drones and pulses from thier instruments with judicious uses of echoe and other effects, while shamanistic frontman William Faircloth (a colorful immigrant from Britain's original '60s psychedelic movement) delves into mysticism (Native American on the first album, Tibetan on the second) with a grace and passion rarely seen before.
Dancing to Restore an Eclipsed Moon is an astonishing debut. The luxurios packaging (doubleLP/single CD) mirrors the care put into the music, which tastefully incorporates flutes, bells, natural sounds (water, birds) to create a heady atmosphere of ritualistic ecstasy. Short catchy compositions like 'Dark Spirits' and 'Dreamings Ending' alternate with several long and complex pieces.
The follow-up album is far more direct, both in the melodic music and the lyrics, which turn towards external/environmental stimuli. As crystallized by the gorgeous 'Dive In Deep' and an incandescent cover of Pink Floyd's 'Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun,' the theme of hope for the magic and beauty of life in the face of despair remains. Prior to the Spirits, Faircloth lent his vocal ululations to the similarly psychedelic Ministry of Love, a trio that included guitar wiz Mark Nine. Although lacking the Red Temple Spirits' brilliant chemistry, there are some great moments on the five-track EP, including 'Living in the Moment' (a showcase for Nine's e-bow mastery) and Faircloth's touching ballad, 'You're Not On Your Own'
