I've long been a fan of H.P. Lovecraft's horror/fantasy. Filled with shapeless nightmares, indescribable horrors, and maddening visions, his stories have always seemed much more fearsome to me than the cheap frights you find in most horror films.This mix is an attempt to capture the air of Lovecraft's work, and to provide a soundtrack of sorts to a mediocre story of Lovecraftian persuasion that I've had rolling around in my head of late.

Looks like you captured it well! Love that John Vanderslice track, in particular.

Wow, missed this one. Nice creepiness to it. Great Eno, Waits, Vanderslice and BH Surfers tracks in particular.

2 comments, that sucks! I don't know anything here, or what I do know, I wouldn't like, but you still deserve better support. Don't include Eno & Waits in my generalization above.
