NEW AUTOCOCOON RECORDINGS! On Tour Now with Gossimer!

If you haven’t been waiting as patiently as some of us have for these new autococoon songs to be released, you probably should have. Caitlin Roberts is an amazing songwriter drenched in all that deep, salty northwest moss-magick we covet up here in the Puget Sound and she recorded this new album SPIRULINA with Karl Blau in Anacortes at The Unknown. Lending their own forested, emerald powers to these song-spells are also Jakob Goltiani, Briana Marela, Zrach Burba (of iji), Luc DeSio and Nich Wilbur (who mixed and mastered the record). Click this awesome cover to listen to some of the new album here:

Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos Or Community? (1967)

"Power properly understood is nothing but the ability to achieve purpose. It is the strength required to bring about social, political and economic change. … Now a lot of us are preachers, and all of us have our moral convictions and concerns, and so often have problems with power. There is nothing wrong with power if power is used correctly. You see, what happened is that some of our philosophers got off base. And one of the great problems of history is that the concepts of love and power have usually been contrasted as opposites — polar opposites — so that love is identified with a resignation of power, and power with a denial of love.

It was this misinterpretation that caused Nietzsche, who was a philosopher of the will to power, to reject the Christian concept of love. It was this same misinterpretation which induced Christian theologians to reject the Nietzschean philosophy of the will to power in the name of the Christian idea of love. Now, we’ve got to get this thing right. What is needed is a realization that power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love. And this is what we must see as we move on. What has happened is that we have had it wrong and confused in our own country…” - Martin Luther King, Jr (Chaos Or Community, 1967)
