For this, my 10th outing on this fine radio station, I’ve come up with a mix that is in part inspired by an email conversation I had recently with the lovely Matt Shenton (there are no birds here), over a virtual French Fancy and a glass of Tesco (other brands are available) Special Reserve Scotch. We were talking about music that feels like it has a sense of longing, so here are 11 tracks that, for me, evoke that sense beautifully.
Moods. It’s all about the moods. This month we feature a pairing known as Isolated Community heavily throughout the mix, for no other reason than I think they’re brilliant and that the tracks chosen here act perfectly as waymarkers as we move through a host of ups and downs, bumps, scrapes, highs and lows from a collection of other high priests & priestesses of the dark electronic and folk arts. All thrillers, no Killers.
