Playing tracks by
Earsmack, Ethan Rose, Laraaji, Terry Riley, William Basinski and more.
This mix gets its name from the final track, one of eight beautiful curios on the album "Oaks" by Ethan Rose (whom you might have heard on the musique concrete-y soundtrack to Gus Van Sant's "Paranoid Park"). "Oaks" is one of my favorite albums of recent years and it is twice represented here. Earsmack is another artist to land two tracks on this mix. I found him searching for ambient stuff on soundcloud (http://soundcloud.com/earsmack) and downloaded these beautiful tracks immediately. I'm extremely fond of them both, but the second, "Mist," is especially fantastic, sounding more than a little bit like an outtake from Eno's "Music for Films" or the Fripp/Eno classic "Evening Star."
