Your boy DEAR_SPIRIT is about to leave for a little over a week of touring with my band Rohit, so I'm gonna hit y'all with something special that should take a while to burn through. It's a phenomenal 4-disc compilation of songs by various darkwave, neoclassical, neofolk, and otherwise industrial-adjacent artists, each of which is meant to represent a different herb. What's that? Yes, marijuana is included -- Lotus Eaters are given the honor. Other artists include the rest of the above-linked, as well as Amber Asylum, RAIN, Troum, and a whole bunch more. Full track listing here. You're welcome.

  5. Thank you. Looks very nice!

  6. Wow, thank you! I don't know how I've never heard of this before; now I need to track down a physical copy and check out the book that came with it. For as much ground as they cover in four and a half hours, it's remarkable how well everything flows together.

    1. It's really a remarkable piece of work, definitely worth tracking down. This is one of the few albums on here that I actually ripped myself.

  7. You guys going to be making it down as far as Texas?

    1. No, we're going as far south as Tijuana, but sticking pretty close to the coast

  10. Thanks for this. Any chance you have BLOOD AXIS "Born Again"? Haven't managed to find it.
    Best of luck with Rohit.
