“The quaternity is the sine qua non of divine birth and consequently of the inner life of the trinity.
—Carl Jung, CW 11, para 125

This ideology makes for an interesting and natural thematic base for Sabbath Assembly’s third full-length album, considering the unity of light and dark, good and evil, Christ and Lucifer has been extolled by the band since their psych-flecked folk debut, 2010’s Restored to One.

For those looking to counter the consumerism of St. Patrick’s Day, singer/songwriter Tim Larson may have just the remedy. Larson has recorded a cover of the Irish standard “The Unquiet Grave”. Spare, evocative, and almost gospel-like, Larson’s take on the classic tune is perfect for those who prefer to have a quiet St. Paddy’s, without the allure of cheap green beer surrounding them. This “Unquiet Grave” is best accompanied by an Irish whisky in a dimly lit room.
