Malabarista is built around a six-bar guitar melody that evokes an expansive, bleak desert landscape. The dual guitars release into a sub-bass workout with xylophone, synths and drums forming a dense percussive foundation. Drawing influence from spaghetti western soundtracks and krautrock, Malabarista combines a variety of instruments and sounds to create a unique entry in the Lotus catalog.
