Illuminated Paths 451
Artist: Whalez X Cobra
Title: Midnight Sounds / Dystopian Future
Label / Year: Illuminated Paths / 2017
It’s nearing midnight. You find an abandoned cassette player in the street, tape still running. There’s drama in the humid air. Maybe a hint of adventure. Yet the batteries are running down, and from a passing vehicle you hear the static of a forgotten radio. The red pulse of a radio tower shimmers in the distance. Is this a novel of your own invention? It’s Y2K & all those technical difficulties are melting like a chalkdust Dali scrawled upon the sidewalk. No worries – there’s a lunar spa and a beautiful garden just on the other side of that clockface.
Unplug your TV. Listen to this instead.
