I'm not sure anyone's writing shit about the dizzying spiritual discontent of the information/overpopulation age quite as effectively as Black Mountain's Stephen McBean. Dude just sounds like he's so far out there he couldn't give a fuck, and maybe that's something people should latch onto. Sure there's a frightening new display of tragicomedy lurking around ever corner these days, but you've got to maintain; you've just got to freaking maintain. Count back from ten slowly. We've got electric guitars; we've got vintage synths. We've got videos about psychic witches. Ride the wave. Everything's going to be okay.
Thanks, bro. I was really starting to lose it there with all this economic disaster warmongering bullshit. Now I'm back in a good place. The blues heal, I think I see what you're saying.
