Quel che c'è da sapere per ora sul nuovo e ormai imminente album di Bob Drake, Planets and Animals, lo anticipa lui stesso: "Writing for this album started in Summer 2019, recording began in early January 2020. Aiming for a garage-ey, rockin' sort of album, energetic, scintillating, and uplfiting, I think it worked! A few friends who have heard it and commented upon it used the word "psychedelic", which is fine by me, because: psyche = "the soul or spirit", delos = "to become clear or visible". That sounds like "music" to me! Recording began before the covid pandemic, and as the madness of current events accelerated throughout the Summer, especially in the USA, it all made me even more determined to try to make an energetic, uplifting album, and I sincerely hope that after Nov 3, things will begin to take a turn for the better, and, that in any case, the music will help bring some happiness and joy, and a touch of the wild mysterious Universe we're part of."
