I said things would get dirtier as the year rolls on, but I think I’m going to save the real face-bleeders until the end of the year. May is an mmm umber month then; earthy, thatched and creosoted, rained out picnic, unmade road, stubborn thrusts, warm slate in a birchwood thunderstorm, sweaty fumbles in a fermented spinney, sunny benches that you remember forty years later and the slightly creepy ruins of a long-deserted cottage.
Mostly instrumental too…

I also said I wasn’t going to share another one of my songs, but there, I did. Not that, of course, it matches the majesty of any of the tracks it sits next to here though.
Don’t forget it is Modern Sin#452 to listen to this music, any music, over crappy youtube uploads (which are just here for reference) or through shitty [white] earbuds or speakers. You wouldn’t slather a Michelin star meal with ketchup now would you? Respect the art!
If you like these tracks do take a look at the other month-mixes. If you don’t like them, readjust your psyche by entering an affective matrix that rewards parts of you that you don’t normally give soft-selfed existential attention to (in this case, perhaps, take a long stroll through a wet forest at sunrise after a tremendous orgasm) and then keep listening until you do.
