Dream Weapons present: I HEAR VOICES C90

I had already started collecting tunes for this mix of mine simultaneously as Sadhu Sadhu mentioned his similarily themed Mouth of Truth. His approach was quite unlike I Hear Voices. But I too present to you a smörgåsbord of human emotions expressed through the use of voice-or voices as the running theme. I always had a soft spot for spoken word done with genuine musicality - and half of the material included is musically accompanied poetry and tales. While the rest is primarily wondrous folksongs, or the more abstracted «voice as an instrument» kind of soundscapes. As often before this mix is darkly flavored, jazzy, folky, psychedelic and occasionally far out and experimental -Moahaha

  1. Splendid mix! I especially enjoyed The Dong with a Luminous Nose. Keep em comming!

    1. Cool - thanks! I'm glad as I've actually been obsessing with The Dong-song for months now... playing it for literally everyone I've met and well sort of built this mix a little around it.
