I was trying to do something murkier and more free-form than usual, although this mix ended up being poppier than I had intended. The title is from the liner notes to the Donovan album. SpaceSounds is an old, scratchy flexidisc that National Geographic put out in 1980 which belongs to e-lo, and which I have mined for samples. That Palace song slays me.
