This one is the most psych folk for me, very into blending Popol Vuh soundtracks with D'Gary and Ali Farka Toure and Brit folk/Psych folk. And super into cults lately, maybe this would be the music that accompanies a dramatic life change, leaving it all behind.

Definitely was thinking and reading a lot about cults, so I kept coming back to the thinking: what would make you step away from yourself and try out a new life?

The book is autofictional (part autobiography and part fiction) following that train of thought of wanting to leave your current self and start over/anew.

As with the book, the music takes on a similar loner feeling for me, blending reality and dreams and heavy thoughts on consciousness. I've had a lot of insomnia the last year and a lot of the dream-real split comes from that, so layers of isolation and depression find a way to get real when you're writing at night half-asleep, and even start to take over your thinking every day. The record definitely isn't a concept record but joining a cult works as a great metaphor for supreme loner detachment.

PS - I don't want to join a cult!
