Badgerlore is the combined musical project of Rob Fisk (7-Year Rabbit Cycle, Deerhoof) and Ben Chasny (Six Organs of Admittance, Comets on Fire), with Tom Carter (Charalambides), Pete Swanson (Yellow Swans), Glenn Donaldson (Jewelled Antler, Skygreen Leopards) and Liz Harris (Grouper).
“Old weird universe” describes their recorded output perfectly. The transcendental mystery of existence and of a constantly changing present, hearkening back to the source. Like the whisperings of the universe to all creation, to the plants, animals, rocks, and soil. The mystery of it all, unknowable and yet lucid. To view the Earth as though one has never before set eyes upon it. Its human systems, its natural cycles.
It is with suspense and beauty that the present slips past. Each moment set in stone and yet cast into the wind. Washed away by the tide. When space and time are merely constructs of a perspective, we are always at the beginning of all things. A portion of a beginning that never ends. Now has always been all there ever was. A chance to create anew, a time of creation.
