The always adventurous John Paul Jones, who has packed his post-Led Zeppelin career with numerous collaborations and unpredictable sonic experiments, has lately been making some truly next-level sounds with Minibus Pimps, a two-man noisefest composed of Jones and electronic musician Helge Sten. The duo’s debut album Cloud to Ground was just released via SusannaSonata Records, and the band has finally made a track from the album available as a free stream.

Head on over here to take a listen or check it out below. But be warned: what you are about to hear does not conform to any model of pop or rock music. The track in question, “Superbolt,” sounds more like a field recording from an alien planet, or like the last scrambled minutes of an animal’s collapsing consciousness. In other words: this is some trippy stuff!

According to the band’s press materials, Jones and Helge achieve their otherworldly sound with the Kyma computer system, into which instruments (guitar, bass, violin) are “fed” before being “radically transformed by self-designed digital instruments and processors until their sources are barely recognizable.”

It is far out stuff, to be sure, and even if it’s not your cup of tea, you’ve gotta respect John Paul Jones for refusing to rest on his laurels. And yeah, a good old fashioned Led Zeppelin reunion would be nice, but the world needs nutty stuff like this, too.
