The Lower Depths – ‘Trip Hazards’ (2022)

Anyone who knows me is aware that I go out of my way to collect even a single couchbound psychedelic number to add to my ever-growing list, all suitable for passing through an afternoon of soft dream-laden clouds drifting across the blue desert sky that makes up my backyard.
