Tasty Trichomes - favorite nugs of 2012

Just like any year, 2012 contained some beautiful highs and precipitous downers.  Yet, music was my Magical Shepherd  - peace and love to my bro, Jay, and Miroslav - guiding me through vicissitudes and assisting the ascent.  I've never been one for making lists.  There are some immensely talented writers that have compiled wonderful lists - my Foxy D bros, my friend Justin, and many others.  My list for 2012 is below - and it would not be complete without an accompanying nug or two!  There is no order to the list.  However, there is one promise: some heady times!!  Here it is, in true grip it and b-rip it style!

peace and love to my friends at Humboldt Relief :)   


Motion Sickness of Time Travel - S/T (SP016)


Willie Lane - Recliner Ragas (HUM 1004)

Günter Schlienz - Tape Studies (sicsic031)

Sylvester Anfang II - Perzische Tapijten (GPS75)

Sylvia Monnier - Never More Camellias (CW06)

Herbcraft - Flowering (JDR001)

Derek Rogers - Institutio Amet (SS03)

Raajmahal - S/T (KELLIPAH 009)

High Aura'd - Sanguine Futures (BATHETIC 63)

Planets Around the Sun - Ram of Heart and the Earthen Chariot (Sloow Tapes)

MV & EE - Zebulon Residency box set (C.O.M. 38)

Travelers on the Golden Road know the score.  Zebulon is a C.O.M. classic, with the best sound of any MV & EE boxset.  Another factor that makes this release special is the list of players: Rongoose, Smokehound, Herbcraft, Jeremy Earl, Jarvis Taveniere, Steve Gunn, PG Six, Willie Lane and Andre Vida.  Steve Gunn on Environments is some heavy stuff!  Limited to only 99 copies, this meticulously hand-crafted beauty disseminates the Spectrasound vibe.    

peace and love, friends :)
