Item ID: 383909

Three years on from the initial HERBCRAFT blurt, 'The Astral Body Electric' sees the sonic seeds sown in previous wax transmissions blossom in full. Herbcraft has in recent years sprawled out in many different full-band incarnations and operated as a duo, trio, quartet and sextet, for tours and heady super-sessions at their HQ in Maine. Their third album finds the most enduring line-up of the band at its peak: songs half-composed, half-improvised, and played with freewheeling first-take intensity. 'Astral Body Electric' is psychedelic, mantric, free-rock music for the mind and body, and it's the most expansive, fully-realized, and confident Herbcraft record yet. Vinyl-only, limited to 500 copies.
