11.11.2020 | New Review Wednesday | Dough G from Marley Natural

Welcome back to the Red Bench – it’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for a new video review!

This week I got into a strain called Dough G from Marley Natural, the brand that Bob Marley’s family has created. This Sativa-dominant strain came in at 18.6% THC, and was a pleasure to smoke – nice gassy flavors! Check out the video review where I unbox this herb and see what’s in the jar…

While you’re at it, you might want to read the written review as well. I go more in-depth in the written review than I do in the video, so the two pair well together…

The Near Heaven Orchestra

You might have noticed the background music to our videos… that music is from a project of mine called The Near Heaven Orchestra. I create soundscapes – recordings that would make good soundtrack music. This project is a perfect example of what I mean.

The music you hear is from an album called On A Pleasant Distant Planet, and was recorded earlier this year, before the pandemic hit. The songs are all instrumentals and create a chill vibe. I was, of course, stoned when I wrote these songs! 😉 I listen to this album at least once a week, it’s very good background music while I’m writing.

“A haunted whistle, smokey rooms, saxophones and violins, dreams and starships, lonesome harmonicas under epic western skies, tender guitars, steady drum beats and a hi-desert vibe… landscapes of sound, dreamscapes, textured, abstract and ambient.”

On A Pleasant Distant Planet (song list and poem)

the air hummed with stillness
in smoky rooms
under the star field
on a desert run
aboard the western starship
where dreams will drift
on a pleasant distant planet
during the afterglow
then comes the moment

If you want to hear this album in it’s complete glory, it’s available everywhere you stream music – Spotify, Amazon Music, Apple – everywhere…

These are wonderful soundscapes! I’ll have to download some to smoke and unwind from stressful days. Thanks for sharing!
