Round Spiritual Ring
Out of stock
In the realm of Stimulator Jones, the inspiration for his album “Round Spiritual Ring” harks back to his grade school days when Prince’s “Raspberry Beret” played on his dad’s car radio. A misheard lyric on the hook, “round spiritual ring,” took on a life of its own, becoming the evocative title of his latest musical venture.
This album, in contrast to Stimulator’s debut “Exotic Worlds and Masterful Treasures,” delves into a more personal and vulnerable space. The lyrics touch on struggles with depression and chronic pain, revealing a facet of Stimulator Jones that goes beyond the surface. Yet, at its core, Sam Lunsford, the artist behind Stimulator Jones, remains an optimist. The overarching message of the album echoes the belief that love and connection are formidable forces capable of salvation.
The lead track, “Love Will Light Your Dreams,” encapsulates this sentiment with lyrics like, “It’s hard for you to see / When your life is empty / But that’s alright / Just close your eyes / And love will light your dreams.”
Having mastered the lyrics to “Raspberry Beret” and demonstrating proficiency on an array of instruments from bass to sitar, Stimulator Jones has come full circle. The title “Round Spiritual Ring” not only pays homage to Prince but also serves as a symbol for the interconnectedness of everything, reflecting what Sam describes as the “repetitive forces in the world” – akin to DNA, celestial bodies, or the grooves on vinyl records.
