-valis Pick of the Week
Hail Voyagers! This week we've a Pick sure to send your synapses out to Aldabaran, or Pollux, upon listening: from Arcata, California, White Manna! (No surprise, to me, they're located in Humboldt County!) Their new album, Dune Worship, is out via Holy Mountain.
Six tracks of spaceward-propelling solid fuel to aid even the seasoned psychonaut on inward journeys to untold distances, climes, and psycho-geographies. There's a bit of a '70s "when giants strode the festival scene" vibe to this one. If your tastes run that way this will delight; if your tastes run otherwise, this will possibly convert. Highly recommended. Emphasis on highly.
Note: interesting interview, as always, by our friend the Ape, here.
*** You can listen to the archived stream here; or, hear it this Friday, on The Dead Man's Turn Me On, Dead Man show on Live365, where it's heard every Friday at noon eastern time, as well as Mr. Atavist's Sunrise Ocean Bender show, heard every Monday from 1 to 3 am eastern, on WRIR in Richmond, VA.
Adding the Pick of the Week to their show is Dogs Got A Bone out of Edinburgh, Scotland, from 10pm to midnight, Mondays, U.K. time, (adjust accordingly,) on Belter Radio. Thanks Col Chant!
