Salvia Plath - 'The Bardo Story'

Album Info

  • Release Date: July 8, 2013
  • Label: Weird World
7 / 10 Baltimore’s Michael Collins made music as Run DMT until 2012, when an aggressive dubstep group using the same name threatened him with legal action. Now he’s Salvia Plath, a hybrid of The Bell Jar author Sylvia Plath and herbal high salvia. Like albums by other psychedelic dreamers Ariel Pink and Unknown Mortal Orchestra, ‘The Bardo Story’ sounds like a collection of rediscovered ’60s and ’70s gems uploaded to YouTube. ‘House Of Leaves’ is a blissful ramble, there’s a wonky Velvet Underground violin darkening ‘Bardo States’, and ‘Salvia Plath’ is an entrancing psychedelic wobble. Get stuck in.
