White Moon, Black Trees
As 2012 progresses I sit alone in the quiet cabin and think deeply about the events of the last three months. Winter was harsh and beautiful, spring has been harsh and beautiful. What was once a clear view of my future has turned into a sometimes unsettling unknown. These days I require something deeper in my records and I have found much solace in this music. This is my first mix of 2012 and it's a serious one. Since the last episode in December I have lost another friend to death and I am working my way through the depths of grief.
In the spirit of creating a meaningful aural ambience for my health and well being I patched together this hour-long sonic road to travel. It is another unusual concoction of post-punk, shoegaze, britpop and atmospheric indie records from the 1980s to the present. Starting off on the acoustic side of this universe I managed to draw in a variety of sounds and emotional states of mind. I originally made this mix for the benefit myself but I have been so moved by it that I feel compelled to share it with the rest of the world.
