After the last couple weeks, I’m about ready to jettison off this planet. The successful SpaceX launch certainly makes the idea tempting. If you are similarly seeking an escape, look out for Azure, the brand new record from Vinyl Williams out now. The local psych artist, né Lionel Williams, has created not just one but 11 new worlds on the new LP—one for each track. He recently revealed the cunning space rock tune “Mithras” alongside a fittingly mystical music video that guides us further from reality.
