mp3: Herbcraft

"No Hope for Mankind"

Until I heard Herbcraft, I never thought William Blake's "The road of excess leads to the palace of Wisdom" quote was very righteous. It always seemed like a cop out for hedonists claiming to have infiltrated a more pure and genuine world. But, in delving into the depths of meditative psych, Herbcraft proves that not all excess is worrisome.

Expansive and explosive, the jams on Herbcraft Discovers the Bitter Water of Agartha cascade into one another like ripples of memories forming in and out of each other. Loose raga's and interwoven psych guitar dirges provide the path, which may or may not lead to a mythologized utopia somewhere in the darkness of Aroostook County.

Herbcraft begins a short East Coast run today in Philly with Bobka favorite Sacred Harp. The pair will be in Brooklyn Friday, July 2nd for a show at Silent Barn, along with Plankton Wat.
