CLOSEDOWN: Giant Claw

May 17th, 2012 | closedown, music

I do like a bit of cosmic, and Giant Claw’s brilliantly named CLASH OF MOONS fires a huge information-rich pink laser of it.  Or, perhaps, a radiophonic burst from beyond space.  Either way, it’s a perfectly nice way to close out the night.  G’night.


CLOSEDOWN: Disemballerina

May 16th, 2012 | closedown, music

What is the sound of being locked in a box, being transported to a bleak riverside, being gently slid into the river, sinking to the bottom and then being slowly enfolded by cold black waters, closing your eyes, opening them again some endless time later, realising you are conscious but not breathing, finding yourself in a stark, denuded landscape, alone, blasted by ice-razor winds, crawling into a solitary dark stone hovel on the moorland for shelter, being grabbed from behind, thrown into a box, being locked in the box, being transported to a bleak riverside, being gently slid into the river, sinking to the bottom and then being slowly enfolded by cold black waters and then closing your eyes?

It is the sound of Disemballerina’s “Sundowning.”  Good night.

Some proper witched-out space music for the overnight.  I fully expect this to trigger dreams of ghost women on gently collapsing space stations, morphine moondust meditation and the soft but insistent refusal to open doors.  Sleep well, when you sleep.

G’night.

I leave you for the weekend with this: a short film written and directed by Javier Grillo-Marxuach (LOST, THE MIDDLEMAN) and featuring Amber Benson and Adam Busch (BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER). G’night.
