Comment:

Yet another folk/drone/"whatever, really" mix, because apparently, I haven't made enough of those already? The political propaganda contained in my previous efforts has inadvertently and much to my own concern been replaced by a weird spiritual bent, especially noticeable in the final 30 minutes or so, which contains druids, witches, Friends-watching ghosts and David Tibet's apocalyptic phantasies. Fitting title for this mess provided by Wooden Wand.

The background is that I promised a friend to send him a copy of the Mouthus album released last year as part of the Modern Containment series, and figured that while I was already sending him stuff, I might as well include an unsolicited mix built around a few other tracks from the same series. Since the 40- to 70-minute single tracks that make up most of these releases aren't all that suitable for mix-making, it ended up just being three songs from the series - the Hush Arbors, Bardo Pond (which is, in fact, a single-track release, but one consisting of three distinguishable parts) and Wooden Wand ones. Everything else is just stuff that seemed to go well with it, and which I hope he'll enjoy. I actually heard two of these songs (Niemandswasser and Broken Bones) performed live the very same day that I sent this off the other week, which was certainly very neat.

Well Alex, you and Curtis have left me in the woods, but I do note that Neil Young is pretty cool.
