Belgian label Stroom.TV just released a limited edition of 100 vinyls of "Bardo for Pablo" and you need to move quick because Pitchfork already scooped it up for their "Best New Music" list. This Belgian nugget is perfect for heatwave-induced altered states, smudged sunrises and reading the Tibetan Book of the Dead (the Bardo Thodol) at sundown. These are just suggestions, really. You can also put it on while you're doing the dishes or shopping for lemons, whatever your idea of living your best life in the bewildering flux of the now is like.
From the press release:
‘Bardo’ is the state of existence intermediate between two lives on earth. It is an intermediate, transitional, or liminal state between death and rebirth.
Music composed by Pablo's Eye.
Performed by Axel Libeert, Dirk Wachtelaer and Thierry Royo.
Mixed and produced by Axel Libeert & Erwin Autrique.
Selection by Ziggy Devriendt.
