Postcommodity: We Lost Half the Forest and the Rest Will Burn This Summer + Q&A

Using their own borderlands-rasquache instruments and regalia, Postcommodity performs song variations from their latest album We Lost Half the Forest and the Rest Will Burn This Summer. Recounting an ongoing cycle of decay in a desert from the view of its flora and fauna, hacked electronics, voices, rattles, animal calls, and Mexican whistles dirge through the only path to the end.
