Bassist Al Cisneros would have been forgiven if his psych/doom duo Om had stuck with the epic Sabbath-meets-early-Floyd incantations heard on its first three albums. Instead, after the departure of fellow Sleep founder Chris Hakius and subsequent addition of Grails drummer Emil Amos, the group broadened its sound to include flute, cello, and the drone of the Indian tambura. For last year's hypnotic Advaitic Songs, Om brought on Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (of Lichens fame) and stretched its sonic envelope even further, with tabla, sampled chants, and a full string section adding a new level of spiritual resonance to the band's unique riff science. Sun City Girls principle Sir Richard Bishop primes the audience for mind expansion with an opening set of solo guitar excursions at this week's show.
