The Bee & The Stamen . . . and the King

The flowers in my hood are are in bloom, and these itchy eyes and sneeze attacks are borderline torturous. All this carrying on means, happy springtime, ya’ll. And if I had a garden (and a green thumb), I’d get me some King Britt and get to planting.

The Bee & The Stamen is King Britt’s abstract audio representation of a bee’s trek in search of stamen (the pollen producing floral organ), ultimately culminating in cross pollination.
