Hello friends. To those of you who enjoyed last week’s mixtape, thank you — I’m overjoyed to be able to share all this with you. To those of you who didn’t, I hope I can continue to improve and win you over.

To proceed to the subject of this week’s mixtape: It is good to be sad sometimes. Oh yes, the sweetness of melancholy… the catharsis and consummation of the sad passions, fresh dawning spirit which follows the night of the soul — let us trace it through music. Enjoy:

Cosmic Melancholia (Playlist)

1. M. Geddes Gengras — Magical Writing (Side B): Stellar symphony vanishing into the night; a dissolving space station, a skeleton drifting across the Sun’s face.

2. Minimal Man — War at Nite: Choir of Eurydice; sun-shattered spectres spray bright streams of song across shadowy burial gardens.

3. Harmen Fraanje and Ernst Reijseger — Shadow: Cave of Forgotten Dreams. Ravishing sky wanders aimlessly through the primordial soul.
