Mutant: Arca’s spiritual solace can transform you


Smoking weed has not only improved my relationship with others, but also myself. It has bolstered my connection to music and my body. So with the next few playlists, I thought it would be apt to highlight some artists whose work has been key in this process.

Arca’s music is both alien and intimate, ghastly but serene. Putting himself at the forefront of his work, the body is a means of navigating sonics that can be disorienting. Experiencing Arca’s visual presence is just as important as sonics. It’s music that creates a temporary alternate reality, where we are freed from the limitations of the human form and gender. Here are some great songs to experience this bliss.

Happy toking!
