Are These The Questions That We Need to Ask?

Discovered this one by Paperhaus just today on my Facebook feed thanks to a timely reminder by a standout member of Knoxville's music and creative scene - one, Royal Starr, of Moccasin Cowboy (see below) - about the upcoming show @ The Pilot Light THIS upcoming Tuesday evening starting at 9p.

"From the mouth of the forlorn traveler." 

This one weaves and winds and shuffles. It's a different breed of industrial sound meant to enhance the experience of the lyrical concepts, which are esoteric and studious, in combination with progressive experiential soundscapes. 

After a period of growth and the pursuit of greater and greater self-awareness, we arrive at a resolution in the form of inner-headspace ablution and exploration. The ideas are rooted for contemplation, the seeds are sown. 

As always, we recommend you listen with headphones to ensure maximum subjective experience. Our very own, Adam Austin, everybody.

// A Magnolia Blooms holistic contribution to the pursuit of the real, a better future for all humans, and the embrace of subconscious expression as a vehicle for the raw creative act.


On the Menu - Carti Venandi

This one rolls through you like you're sitting there in the scene, watching the fast-paced diner action take place in slow motion. You realize it's really you on the menu, there in DC.

The lingering bass seems to hang in the moment every few measures, suspending the ambient passage of time happening above in the foliage. This track is an environment, a soundscape. 

It yet lacks the poetry that's bound to swing through its trees when soon released. For now:  check out the talented and original sounds emanating from our hometown, Knoxville, Tennessee.
