MOON OF OSTARA
Music from the Green Ray
Fred Laird frontman to the psychedelic rock group Earthling Society, releases his debut album in celebration of the old ones.> >
Moon Of Ostara is a proto-druidic hallucinogenic journery into the realms of the star child. 4 meditations influenced by the krautrock of Ash Ra Tempel, Harmonia, Walter Wegmuller's Mystical 'Tarot' album and the works of William Blake. Ostara is the first day of spring. The energies of nature shift from the death knell of winter to the expansion of spring. The earth Goddess opens her gates and fertility bursts forth bringing with it the star child. He walks the greening fields and makes the hours of day and night equal. He impels the wild creatures to reproduce and he sleeps as a guest in the house of the Interpreter. He is the star child, cosmic and wild, who tells the ages of the moon if not he?
