I have to admit that it's a relatively recent development.
When I was younger, I used to sleep like a baby, but within the last 3 years or so, there are nights where the harsh horse of insomnia rides me from one end of sanity to the other. This morning was a good example, although that was more due to feeling ill as opposed to the usual reason:
My brain won't shut up.
This usually only happens once every couple of months. However, this morning was the second bout in under a week. Last week's was much worse, though, but a least I got to blame it on music...
I awoke at about 2am with "Falling Elevators" by MC 900 Ft Jesus in my head. Its hefty bass line and eerie trumpet riff got me thinking about stuff that might fit well and hence another fairly bizarre mix started churning around inside the old noggin. This one continues along the lines of the stuff I've been cranking out lately: diverse in a strange way, seemingly unfocused, but still flowing well.
With that massive caveat, may I present Fantasies, Fallacies, And Fever Dreams.

And it was with great pleasure I spied that excellent Yello track. I wish you sweet dreams.

My favorite excuse (and cure) for insomnia: mixing, which you have done quite successfully, hope it helped you sleep...

Looks wonderful but the darn download page just won't load. Alas.

You got me hooked with the MC 900 Ft Jesus opener (an absolute killer of a song) and much that follows looks quite good as well. Hope the sandman comes to you soon....
