Giant Skyflower Band

Giant Skyflower Band is one of the more recent incarnations of multi-instrumentalist Glenn Donaldson.  As one of the founders of San Francisco’s Jewelled Antler Collective, Donaldson has founded and played in a number of bands, notably The Skygreen Leopards, Flying Canyon, Thuja, and The Blithe Sons.  He has also released solo records as The Ivytree and The Birdtree.  

With Giant Skyflower Band, he invited Shayde Sartin to “smoke marijuana & make up strange pop songs.”  The album is centered around Glenn Donaldson’s warm acoustic strumming, and is fleshed out with sitar and a soft wall of bass, and drums.  It is music for the inside of the mind, and it is also music for flights through the sky.  Sometimes flying sunwards, sometimes being gently lowered back down to seaside cliffs and forgotten trails, the music crumbles and reforms again before finally returning home.

  3. When someone writes an piece of writing he/she maintains the image of a
    user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of
    it. Therefore that’s why this article is amazing.
    Thanks!
