A reflective pop tribute to the impending apocalypse marked by the summer solstice and end of the Mayan Calendar on 21 December 2012. This date incited many conflicting prophesies including the annihilation of the human race via a destructive galactic alignment, the arrival of the next solar maximum, and geomagnetic reversal, as well as the heralding of a new world and a spiritual transformation in human consciousness.
From the debut album Ambrosia.
‘Dirt Philosopher is brooding pop, with a combination of clean and distorted guitar textures and swirling vocal melodies… Despite it's weighty sentiments, "Dirt Philosopher" has catchy appeal, nicely accented by a synthesizer solo reminiscent of Peter Gabriel-era Genesis.’ Mike Roots, ReviewYou.com
