Prince Rama is the musical duo of sisters Taraka and Nimai Larson. They have lived in ashrams, worked for utopian architects, written manifestos, delivered lectures from pools of fake blood, conducted group exorcisms disguised as VHS workouts, and have now finished inventing an apocalypse on which to base their new pseudo-compilation album, ‘Top Ten Hits of the End of the World.’ It’s comprised of ten singles “channeled” from fictional deceased pop bands. Their often unpredictable live shows incorporate elements of psychedelic ceremony, performance art, and dancefloor initiation rite. When Animal Collective’s Avey Tare discovered them in a Texas dive bar in 2010, they were equipping the audience with handmade shoes clad with broken chimes. Their previous two records, ‘Shadow Temple’ and ‘Trust Now,’ peaked at #3 and #6 on the Billboard New Age Charts respectively. Taraka recently published a manifesto on the “NOW AGE” that puts forth Prince Rama’s aesthetic and metaphysical philosophies, which has been met with both praise and hatred from art and music worlds alike. And Nimai writes an occasional food column called “Healthy or Hungover,” exploring the desire for health, and the desire for recovery from one’s own mistakes. One thing is certain: whatever it is they are, Prince Rama are constantly demolishing ideas of what is acceptable as they continue to forge a dizzying universe that is wholly their own.NEVER FOREVER is the first ever Now Age psych-opera, starring Prince Rama and featuring songs off their latest apocalyptic pop album, ‘Top Ten Hits of the End of the World.’ Shot in only 5 days and directed by Lily X. Wahrman (Astral Projects), ‘Never Forever’ takes you on a free-form journey through dimensions both surreal and virtual - from the glamorous, twisted world of a post-apocalyptic gym queen to the nightmarish breakdown of a VR robot turned pop star. If Alejandro Jodorowsky was reborn in 2127 and crashed his motorcycle into the decayed set of “Thriller,” it still wouldn’t come close to the terror that is ‘Never Forever.’DJing all night from P U S S Y B O Y S (Macho City + Disco/Secret + B I L L Y ! )$10 tickets available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/404381Doors at 8PM
