Song of the Day - December 28, 2006

As the year progressed, great psyche-folk recordings became increasingly abundant. Andrew Rothbard makes his contribution with his first solo effort Abandoned Meander, and it is quite a sonic delight. This is the first of a five part series of albums based on the Discordian law of fives: Thesis, Antithesis, Synthesis, Parenthesis, and Paralysis. This album's theme is thesis. Andrew is already working on the second album entitled Rainbeam Sunbow. According to Andrew Rothbard, ""[Thesis] manifests chaos protected by Goddess Eris, codified by hexagram 2 of the I Ching and directed entirely toward Yin. She lives on the planet Venus, and her Tarot card appears as the High Priestess Trump II." I suppose that statement will give you a hint at the psychedelic nature of the tracks in store for the listener. If you didn't know, Discordianism is a religion based on chaos. I suggest the title track "Abandoned Meander" as a perfect introduction to Rothbard's Discordian world. Click here to listen.
