“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!

Thrilled and grateful to be in the company of the Beatles, Byrne, and Claremont. Did enjoy the nietsneknarF clip, but of course my inner stickler bristled at the fact that so much of what they talked about isn’t actually in the novel. Yeah, dramatic license…

Regarding nietsneknarF. I know. One had to toggle a little. But I thought the idea was really funny and pretty well executed.
