Lichens is Rob Lowe's (90 Day Men) vehicle for performance and recording solo and with collaborators. Lichens is a transfixing experience that loops wordless vocals into curtains of ghostly drone which Lowe makes witchier with the addition of both acoustic and electric guitars, percussion and other effects.
Recorded live as a one-time improvisation without overdubs, the three tracks on The Psychic Nature of Being reveal and extend already mesmerizing Lichens live performances.
Holy Mountain's deluxe vinyl edition of The Psychic Nature of Being comes housed in a sturdy old-style tip-on jacket that features original artwork by Mr. Lowe not available on the CD version (to be released on Kranky in October '05). Catch it!
