Dream Weapons present: WIND-UP MYSTERY BOX C60


Digging for shellac-gems in flea markets and second hand stores is always a hit or miss treasure hunt. But the right kind of seven to nine decades old recorded music conveys a sort of life-affirming joy, emotional intensity or wide-eyed beauty that appeals to me more than most contemporary stuff. This mix containing only music of the 78rpm-era is a tribute of sorts to my hand-cranked gramophone player as a "magical mystery box". World music from a different world. -Moahaha
