Colortones 003 - Back Cover

Admittedly, this is one of my darker, more fragile mixes, but despite the description, it’s mostly hopeful. A while back, I shared a Fennesz album with my friend Myrrh, and he later expressed joy in discovering that David Sylvian was a guest vocalist on one of the tracks. So, with this episode, I made a mix around that particular song that has since been tinged with Myrrh-ness, weaving in a narrative of a kind of surrealistic dream state in which you might awake feeling a little closer to finding your answer, whatever that may be.
