Hailing from Denton, TX, burgeoning production talent Botany has unveiled plans to drop his debut full-length, Lava Diviner (Truestory), this October via Western Vinyl. The 12-track album—which comes mastered by leading SoCal sonic alchemist Matthewdavid and features one guest spot from vocalist/producer Ryat—is said to explore a variety of beat-indebted hybrids which incoporate "proto-new age textures" and a "primal boom-bap pulse." Not to leave us all in the dark, Botany has shared the forthcoming album's first single as a free download; "Anchor"'s rich meshing of immersive atmospheres, dusty drum loops, and Gold Panda-esque melodic structures serve as an enticing glimpse into Lava Diviner (Truestory). The record's full tracklist and artwork are available to scope after the jump.
