The only way is through LORE CITY ‘Alchemical Task’

Sam Doyle

There’s a reason that billionaires and government peddle poison to us–it keeps us dumb, asleep, and in cycles of pain and paralysis. Since quitting drinking over a year ago, there’s a concept I’ve learned profoundly: the only way is through. Through my pain, through my anger, through my anxiety, through my fear. I don’t have anything to build the numb walls in my mind and my heart the way alcohol did. But the walls came down the minute I went through, leaving the rubble and chaos for me to deal with the next day. Without walls, I need to go through my experience until I’m on the other side and leaving it behind me. Lore City uses the words “The only way is through” about their new album Alchemical Task that’s out October 6th via Lore City Music – pre-order it here. And as I’m listening to Alchemical Task, I feel like I’m gaining some esoteric wisdom handed down by forgotten ancestors whose only way to communicate with me is energetic. I’ve heard these chanting vocals in my dreams and the echoing drums in my meditations. This is healing music that will do right by your soul and help you through. Right now, find your way through to our full stream of Alchemical Task below…

Over there, plans were made to come here, knowing it’s an erasure. A divvying up. Alone and together. In the playing of the game, tied up in knots of forgetting. Yet the wheel always turns back ‘round, opening a remembrance. Archetypal processes maneuvering through infinite combinations, falling into lockstep. A transmutation of energy. The sounds of memory, the colors shimmering, the symbols appearing. Experiencing subjectivity through the daily dulling, we are the universal to-do list. The only way is through.
