"Renaissance Niteclub"

" The Botanist is the true underground sound of our current educated music theory generation. They are undeniable assets to our local music & graphic arts scenes. They are the total package. "
- Judd Kennedy


"IND"

"Don’t try to bring down their Sagittarian stroll; they’ll beat you back with weighty doses of prog riffery and fables of the desert moonchild sun star. It’s that kind of darkness that illustrates this disc."

Bio


"The Botanist's 2010 EP, 'About Ghosts' lays out a Southern noir landscape of highways, darkness, full moons, monsters, ghosts, the devil, and a host of other useful cinematics that lend themselves to heavy rocking tunes by dudes looking to rock freely and transcend the monosodium cold hash of bad trips. Don't try to bring down their Sagittarian stroll; they will beat you back with weighty doses of prog riffery and fables of the desert moonchild sun star. It's that kind of darkness that illustrates this disc. Hey, they even have a moody acoustic bongo tune on this thing reminiscent of the junk-tinged languor of Layne Staley."
- Dege Legg, Independent Weekly
