The Contrarian — Advanced Magick for Beginners

Advanced Magick for Beginners is the most personal record by The Contrarian yet, with a broad musical palette and revealing lyrics. From the electric eden of ’60s Great Britain to American stoner sludge, this aural headtrip proves once again that The Contrarian is your overlord. Pay What Thou Wilt!

Strange Angels — And What’s to Be Done with All of These Strange Angels?


DIGITAL ONLY

And What’s to Be Done with All of These Strange Angels is a pop paean to bootstrapping California — those heady days of scientific and mystical exploration where the dream of Utopia met outright charlatanism, and where the elevation of body and spirit came crashing down in the relentless commodification of Eden. Or, as composers Arthur Leon Adams III and Casey Hades Rae like to call it, a “teenage symphony to Xenu.”

Download comes with artwork and liner notes from the legendary Derek Taylor.

$5 Music + Artwork + Liner Notes!
