This Kickstarter project is meant to support a band. But it’s not their music I’m most interested in. It’s the fact that this band wants to publish a Tarot deck.
But not only are they trying to raise money for recording, mixing, and mastering, they need the funds to print album artwork, and a small deck of Tarot cards.
The deck is being drawn by artist Chris Russell, and is inspired by the songs on the album and the spirit of the Tarot majors.
Songs like Omphalos, Native DNA, and Seek Truth seem to describe energies similar to the Emperor, The Empress and Judgment.
And there’s one called Price of Eggs picturing a giant glowing egg hovering above a land mass of sorts.
I can only imagine what the song’s about, but the card brings to mind the Fool ready to burst out of nothing and into the world.
