Dream weapons present: THE VACANT STARE C90

A pretend soundtrack to my dreamt up, surreal arthouse mystery/horror-flick... or two - with a design that was supposed to resemble a worn out VHS-cover. I don’t know about you, but in the right context seemingly warm and loving tunes can terrify me more than any deliberate "jump scare scores». So I hope I've conjured an insidious atmosphere mainly through torch-songs and gently hissing shellac oldies, in combination with film-noir/crime jazz and snippets of impressionistic mood music - instead.

All that aside there’s about a dozen of my very favorite vintage songs collected here ('n stuff), and of course your mind is free to make whatever imagery it prefers - light, dark or none at all. I cannot force you to listen all the way through to the "come death and finale", but I can strongly recommend that you do.

Dream Weapons present: THE GOLDEN DAWN C60

"The Golden Dawn is a mix of songs i've been listening to lately. Nothing really more complicated than that. Some of them seemed to fit together, others didn't but it made for a mix that wasn't just one long hum of similar sounds. Enjoy it for what is is, if you like a song here or there thats a bonus, if you like the whole thing, well, then we might just become friends".
