Next up on Levitation Sessions: Dead Meadow – Live from The Pillars of God. The show premieres at 7PM CT on Saturday, February 20 and after checking out the video it looks to be another psych rock experience.
In Fall 2020, Dead Meadow convened at Camp Mozumdar, hidden away in the mountains above Los Angeles, to record their Levitation Session at The Pillars of God. The film captures a full performance from the legendary trio, with all original members — Steve Kille (bass), Mark Laughlin (drums) and Jason Simon (guitar/vocals). The three rip through tracks across their discography in front of the monumental structure, part of a sprawling complex built by A.K. Mozumdar and his followers in the mid 20th century in the mountains of Crestline, California that was originally built as a place of worship for people of all faiths.
“When Steve showed me the all-but-forgotten Pillars of God, tucked away down a mountainside dirt road, we both knew this was a place we needed to play. Dead Meadow has always been a retreat of sorts for us, a sanctuary of creativity and freedom. We learned the Pillars were built with similar ideas in mind, open for all as a place to turn towards an inner world. It seemed only fitting to break the longest period in our twenty year history without performing live at this nearly 100 year old monument. Our music echoed out into the night and traveled across the tree tops in the valley below. Come join us here, all are welcome.”
You can pre-order the show HERE along with the live LP, T-shirts and cassettes which are limited editions only available as part of the stream. This LP pressing is limited to 500 copies on orange vinyl with green splatter.
