‘From the Canyon to the Coast’

Claude Mono’s ‘From the Canyon to the Coast’…is a loosely themed mixtape in the Golden Apples theme way – its a musical journey from Laurel Canyon to Venice Beach but the long way through the desert and the Spahn Ranch…a journey that touches Americana, Freak Folk, Stoner Desert Rock, West Coast Yacht Rock and other hallucinatory sounds – its music that is juxtaposed and thrown out of context with goal of bringing you perfect happiness…
