Cotton Mather "Death of the Cool" (Digital Download)
It didn’t take 15 years for Cotton Mather’s Austin-based main man, Robert Harrison to
write the 64 songs that comprise his latest musical vision, one song for each hexagram (or
reading) of the I Ching, that’s actually the amount of time that has passed since the last
full-length album of new Cotton Mather songs was released. With so much new material
on deck, it seems like Harrison is making up the difference.
Over the years, Harrison has often alluded to the fact that Kontiki was largely inspired by
his immersion in esoteric Taoist training, so turning once again to Chinese philosophy for
this new challenge seemed like a natural progression. 64 songs for 64 hexagrams.
Death of The Cool, the first or four anticipated albums comprising Robert Harrison and
Cotton Mather’s endeavor to write and record 64 songs for each of the I Ching’s 64
hexagrams is set for release on July 29th, 2016 on CD & Digital and September 9th on
Limited Edition Vinyl.
