~ a playlist for the exploration of the electric guitar’s many textures and timbres, instrumentally spoken into the silence of post-modernity, for lone listeners like me and like you…
Artists: Russian Circles + God Is An Astronaut + Red Sparowes + Mogwai + Explosions in the Sky + Moonlit Sailor + MONO + Halocraft + This Will Destroy You + If These Trees Could Talk + To Destroy A City + Maybeshewill + sleepmakeswaves
- Tunes made for emotional, inspiring background music
- Tracks for spelling melancholic, lonely silence and for spilling manic swells of uplifting inspiry
- Serial instrumental verses for the end of one world and the beginning of a new one
Songs barren of words, but not of heart, emotion, life – for letting your background be subsumed unto such soundscapes of instrumentational layers and lives, one after another, one after another, like the stripes on the road below you and your wheels.
~ Aesthetic ~
Thrumming chords and orchestrations, melodies made from melancholic sources, for thinking-about-your-entire-life-to, for building to a galvanizing mania to, only to return to silence – and do it all over again on the next one.
