After that, we've got a great chat with guitarist Will Soll who, under the name Prana Crafter, has a new album called Enter The Stream coming out on July 31. Prana Crafter is terrific psychedelic music touching on mystical folk sounds that are better heard than written about so we'll play you a cut from the new album before we get into some good old Grateful Dead. When you like what you hear, you can grip a physical copy of the album from Sunrise Ocean Bender Records or grab a digital version straight from Bandcamp.
