the landscape listens

It's the dead of winter, just trying to outlast the snow & cold, trying to make it to spring break.

The music in this mix has a sort of lonely winter feel to it. The tracks are not too dark or depressing, they just seem to conger up images of vast, snowy landscapes.

There are a few recordings in this mix from some of my recent favorite record labels. I'll just list some of those favorites...

Low Point
Under the Spire
Home Normal
Phantom Channel
Dead Pilot Records
Own Records

Low Point, Phantom Channel, Home Normal, Infraction, Serein, 12k and Under the Spire all made it into the mix. Although no Hibernate recordings made it, I've really been enjoying all the output from them lately. Check out the releases from all these great labels.

Next month I've got a mix coming out on Fluid Radio on MixCloud. I'll keep you posted. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this newest mix.

thanks for posting - I enjoyed this. it has a nice flow and, as you say, something vast and snowy. I enjoyed the little bits of rhythm in the Parks track, it made a little variation; I would have welcomed one or two moments where things emptied out or slowed to a halt - or perhaps Debussy's 'Des Pas Sur La Neige' ... thanks for posting the mix and I look forward to the next one.

Some great tracks from great albums and labels. Lots of stuff there that's had heavy play from me too recently. Cheers! A new album and mix will be available from me soon...:harry

Did you see my mix for Home Normal Records - "At Home With Home Normal" on Headphone Commute? Also, I may want to have you mixup one of your favorites for my podcast on there.

I loved your Home Normal mix! It's one of the mixes that inspired me to do "canticle unfolds". I really enjoy all of the HC mixes!

Andi - thanks for the heads up on the Debussy track. It worked well in "canticle unfolds".

Harry - your new album is excellent!

Love Shaula - O.

Where can I buy online?

Low Light Mixes said...


The Shaula track is from a cd called "Haze" on the Under the Spire label. Unfortunately it is sold out. I'm not sure if there are copies floating around out there somewhere.

Many thanks, Dave. I've managed to track down a copy.

You have some insane skills. Keep up the great work!!
