"Anchor" (single version)

From Lava Diviner (Truestory)

Texan producer Spencer Stephenson aka Botany never resorts to shallow MPC trickery or contrived mixtape clumsiness. Instead, his post-New Age textures
float elegantly over a primal boom-bap pulse to paint a detailed rhythmic mural with the scope of a 1970s progressive rock epic. Created at various Texas locations, his debut album Lava Diviner (Truestory) features guest vocals from Brainfeeder artist RYAT. It was mastered by Matthewdavid.
