A new 45 minutes tape by Daniel Higgs (ex Lungfish) is available now on Gnome Life Records. This is how the label describes it: "This tape is a 45 minute magnetic fossilization of Daniel Higgs' energy field. It is divided between three tracks of epic proportion: a revelational instrumental banjo improvisation, an entheogenic song performed on banjo and larynx, and an ecstatic mythopoetic recitation."
