I've found myself fascinated with sleep lately, trying as I might to catch a meaningful and solid seven hours. I'm nearly there with my average over the last 28 days coming in a 6 hours and 55 minutes.
There has been a lot of emphasis on sleep, in music terms, recently too ... Max Richter's epic "Sleep" album, Hammock's "Songs for sleep" playlist on Spotify, and Sigur Ros presents Liminal Sleep ... are all music that I have listened to and gleefully consumed. I would, however, add Cousin Silas' dronescapes to this list ... especially his latest edition: Dronescape 042.
Cousin Silas' forty-second dronescape is a wonderfully relaxing affair with long, sweeping chords and an unhurried, calm countenance.
Whether you listen to this dronescape with the express purpose of catching some zzz's or not is up-to-you ... but I do know that this delightful longform piece will be something you comeback to in the days and weeks to come.
It is important to note that weareallghosts is funded through the money we receive for albums and dronescapes such as this. For us to realistically continue to put out this level of quality in the quantity that we do, we need to levy a small charge for our releases. Please help out by buying the dronescape.
That said, if you aren’t able to then please note a 320kbps version of this release will be available in the next couple of days over on Archive (archive.org/details/we-are-all-ghosts
) for free.
