Reverently descending from the spirit of the cosmos and budding off the warm, influential beams of the almighty Sun Ra are Golden Dawn Arkestra, warming the Earth with their message one audience at a time and choosing humble Austin as their Earthly base. A brilliant gumbo of Afrobeat, jazz, and psychedelia draped in the bold, heavily textured robe and gilded mask of the avant-garde, this collective of musicians and souls have been treating music lovers to their larger than life performances for nearly half a decade. Amazingly, their spirit and energy are not lost in translation from the stage to the stereo, and today we proudly deliver to you the latest single from this band of cosmic journeymen ahead of their Levitation Fest show tomorrow night at Cheer-Up Charlies.
