Big Cypress Bound
Bobby Angel's 3rd Album

When does an album become an album?

Answer: When suddenly it clicks.

Listen to full album (above) or individual songs/interviews (below)

On my most recent album that happened with the song Time to Retire. Although, to be honest, it took another month after that for me to realize that Time to Retire was the anchor (i.e. final) song. The reason? Sometimes things take a little while to sink in. Time to Retire is an ode to a long time botanist, ecologist, high seas explorer and my boss for the last three years that I’ve spent circling around the orb of hydrogen combustion better known as the sun. I was eternally grateful for the time I spent working with him, as he was what others often called as a “legend of the swamp.” But for me he was nothing other than a good friend, and someone who was as easy to connect with as he knew knew worlds beyond what I could ever comprehend. Or in other words, we we appreciated each other for what we knew, what we could bring to the table, and our potential — individually and collectively — for making a difference.

More about this album: It’s a dedication to a place and a journey. Getting there, staying, and moving away. I’m not saying that every song is about the Big Cypress. But what I can say is that every song was written and sun with the Big Cypress looming in my mind.

Special thanks to Geeta for helping bring it all together with a final campfire at the end. Hashtag: #PalletsWillBeBurned!

More about the Green Album:

Welcome to Bobby Angel’s second studio album, The Green Album. The some eleven (some say 12) songs that follow are a tribute to nature, and an ode to what the Nature Folk Movement (NFM) is all about. In typical Bobby Angel form, the artist wasn’t even aware he was doing a second album until, in an unexpected wave of inspiration, the final song came to life. Preserved is what the critics are calling a literary and musical masterpiece, a rare gem of a song that both summarizes and challenges everything that came before. To quote Bobby Angel, “- On songs like Preserved I’m just along for the ride. All credit goes to my muse.” Other hit songs on the album include The Lusitania – a statement song meant to unseat the Titanic as the top maritime disaster of our collective consciousness – and the haunting tale of a small patch of woods called Ugliest Forest. Bobby Angel brings it on this album, like only Bobby Angel can.

P.S. It also features Bobby Angel’s first anti-war protest song.

More about New Pangaea:

Farewells are both an end and a new beginning.

Bobby Angel’s rocked the Nature Folk world with his debut album and masterpiece New Pangaea. Part Vinyl 33-speed LP, part live campfire event and part narrative history, Bobby Angel simultaneously rekindles and revolutionizes the album genre. Side A of New Pangaea starts where it all started with Bobby Angel – Marsha Marsha – and ends with perhaps Bobby Angel’s most inspirational ode to taking the moral high ground when it comes to fighting for and protecting nature. The songs in between provide a deeply rousing and introspective look into what it takes to live in harmony with the natural world. Remember the magic of turning over to Side B of a 33-speed Vinyl LP? And the climactic concuding song at the end? Think Bob Dylan’s Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands from Blonde on Blonde, or Jungleland at the end of Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run. The eponymously named New Pangaea at the end of Side B does not disappoint.

Not that most of his process isn’t groping around in the dark.

Widely known among Angelheads as “The Interview Album,” this mishmash of exclusive Bobby Angel interviews and campfire shanties covers a lot of ground. Or as we like to say around the campfire: “Throw another log on the fire!” The interview portions are primarily clips from Serena Sonnenuntergang’s breakthrough interview with the artist. In her trademark style of telepathic journalism, Ms. Sonnenuntergang helps Bobby Angel get to the bottom of what makes him and the Nature Folk Movement (NFM) click.
