Threats of another insurrection loom while justice continues to be so blind it can't ever quite spot the people/person in need of punitive action.
Sheesh! The mind is pulled from one terrible loop of thought to the other several times per day. It's fucking exhausting.
The music here is distant, almost as if heard through a neighbors open window halfway down the block. The reverb on opening track "A Quiet Storm" conjures feelings of dreaming while walking through an empty mall. Nostalgia is easily evoked in these songs... I found myself thinking of things and people I hadn't in many years.
Not to overstate things, but this release by Music For Sleep was transformative for me. That said, I've spent months exploring other ambient music and have really yet to find another artist that "does" it for me. So, maybe it's a fluke... a right place at the right moment thing that I stumbled upon Music From A Sinking World. Then again, even flukes can impart lasting change.
