I’ve never done LSD before, but, not too long ago, I visited a website that offered up some visual illusion trickery that allowed me to apparently experience what it was like it to trip. I stared at something for a long time and when I looked away, everything was undulating in waves like a heat shimmer. If that doesn’t sound like fun to you, my next best suggestion is to stare closely at the video that Brenna Murphy put together for Eternal Tapestry. You get a similar effect but with better visuals than my dull apartment walls. And some great music to boot.
“Mountain Primrose” can be found on Eternal Tapestry’s latest album Wild Strawberries, out now on Thrill Jockey.
