Found in the happiest creases of psychedelic pop, garage, freak folk and classic rock, Luke Sweeney swirls quite the mellifluous flavor of sounds. And the San Francisco musician's latest single is a shining example of this taste—a creamy track titled "Mother's Day" that feels like rose water on a friendly day of sunshine. Sweeney proudly dedicates this tune to his wife and mothers everywhere: "a thank you for all you do in raising healthy, conscious, beautiful children in this chaotic world." 25% of proceeds from this limited edition cassette are donated to the nonprofit Every Mother Counts. The poet, composer and guitarist offers this same kindhearted energy to the redwoods and attendees of Fernwood: "we're looking forward to bringing some of that vintage Big Sur spirit along with some new songs from a forthcoming album that we're excited to share."
