Borealis Amanita

by Old Man Mike

Spirit and sound skip softly through the systems that govern our mind, body & world. The music annexes from organic-mechanism to sonic insight. The language is deciphered by the human ear and fired as electrical impulse into the brain. Enjoy the colou

Album Notes
Frequent discussions dog as to whether this is a concept album or not. Well, yes and no. Conceptually, there are thousands of ideas here. Thematically the jury is still out. However whenever we have a listening session someone is always entranced, fixated, transcendental.

The funny feeling in my belly comes back when I hear the album. Considering the hours spent crafting, yet the milli-seconds needed to create and extract inspiration gives new meaning to the word 'production'. But inspiration always goes this way. The spark ignites the paper which lights the flame, beginning the reaction.

I picked these songs from flowers in my garden and growing wild in the woods. The petal is the rhythm, the fragrance is the hook; the earth is stoic and content as the bass solidifies her roots.

Borealis Amanita.

In awe we stand at the majesty of life & creation. Wisdom gives only the knowledge that life, death, colour and sound cannot be understood, only meditated upon. Borealis Amanita takes eleven steps toward that state.

Molaman Records:

"Yo this is a really wild ride you take us on and that's what makes it cool. It's all over the place but at the same time its headed in the same direction. The layers are there and there is a relationship between them that as a musician (which quite frankly, for some might be the difficult part to embrace/get passed--but not us at Molaman) instinctively forces you to anticipate the inevitable conclusion of each phrase but what is refreshing Old Man Mike, is that you are anti-Pop with this track--you cut left rather than right--you zig when it feels as though you might zag--in short you made an audio portrait which is the purpose of music. You communicated and expressed--you painted with sound and the track is fortified funk. Nice work. F the establishment and trends--be you and keep getting deep- don't you ever stop."

Peace, love & flowers
