There's some music out there that demands to be played in a room filled with black light posters and pot smoke. It was most likely conceived that way and will only make sense to someone who considers that a staple of their lifestyle. Sleep's "Dopesmoker" album's title track is over an hour long journey into the recesses of space and time and is the sort of thing you would listen to when you are contemplating the existential crisis you are currently faced with in your line of work. Or when you just want to get stoned out of your mind and pretend you're a space wizard. Same difference.
What I picture when I hear it is a soundtrack to these Tusken Raider-like dudes trekking through the desert, searching for some far off destination they will never quite reach. Are they putting their anger fueled past behind them, journeying through a metaphysical wasteland on their way to a higher (pun intended) existence or are they just trying to get away from crazy old dudes wielding laser swords?
Arik Roper created the art behind this stoner rock classic and Unbox Industries has brought it to life in 3D form. This guy will be available for sale starting tonight from http://store.unboxindustries.info for $85 each.
