“Black Highways and Green Garden Roads" is Philadelphia rock 'n' roll trio Lantern's second full-length studio album. Taking ideas from the work of Hieronymus Bosch, Carl Sagan, and Mikhail Bulgakov, the new album is an exploration of the natural world and the cosmos, and a celebration of the wonderful, the serious, and the absurd. More so than previous recordings, it is a collaborative effort born of studio improvisation and collective experimentation. The resulting collection is a diverse and sophisticated 14-song program that balances concise pop and lush psychedelic rock with weirder, headier jams.
"Black Highways and Green Garden Roads" is being released February 19, 2016 on limited-edition cassette through Fixture Records and on 12'' vinyl through Sophomore Lounge: sophomoreloungerecords.com/blackhighways.html
