As Blues Control, Russ Waterhouse and Lea Cho create a righteous blend of space rock, spiritual jazz and New Age music that sounds like little else. The Coopersburg, PA-based duo has been making albums since 2007 for top shelf labels like Siltbreeze, Not Not Fun, Woodsist and Holy Mountain. In 2011 they issued an absolute classic of contemporary cosmic music in collaboration with zither guru Laraaji, best known for his Brian Eno-produced album from 1980,Ambient 3: Day of Radiance. Artist Kathy Rose directed their latest video (see above) for “Opium Den/Fade to Blue.” [Video via artinfo]
