“Alone with what the fog uncovered”


A new mix at 8tracks: Alone with what the fog uncovered
image: 27/365 morning fog (by ronpalarca)

“…and all at once the ghosts were gone.” It is the time of year when I trade out melancholy dirges and spectral nocturnes for gentle folk, jangly americana and eerie mountain music.  A longer mix than usual – please to enjoy!

(I guess I just wanted to see what it would look like. Now I know.)

Also, I came to a decision re bold pricing. It won’t. Be bold, that is. Just boring old 99.

More to come!
