"December 2009: Inspiration dependently arising; Blows Against The Empire in one hand, Admiral Richard Byrds secret diary in the other. Days after returning to Maine after three heavy months on the road, Matthew Lajoie (Cursillistas) awoke one morning having dreamt the existence of a lost 1973 private press concept record about the exploration of inner Earth and the advanced civilization thriving at its center. Agartha; Shambhala: the domain of the Arianni. Using Byrds account as the thematic framework for the album, he feverishly poured forth a representation of the dreamt record, writing and recording the entire LP in a single 24-hour period - guided by sonic Ouija. The result is a cosmic antenna with dials tuned to the Planet Earth Rock & Roll Orchestra, obscure psych-prog spacecasts, and classic rock radio, all refracted through the dusty, cracked and scratched Cursillistas prism. Performed entirely on a borrowed thrift store electric guitar and broken microphone, Herbcraft Discovers The Bitter Water Of Agartha was birthed in the Now to scatter the seeds of Agarthas message in our Aquarian Dark Age." - Hello Sunshine.
