Dream Weapons present: SAFE SPACE IS THE PLACE C90

The season of colorful autumn leaves dancing in the air is ending and we’re entering the dark days of winter. So I’ve compliled a bright and gentle soundtrack to help us through. My idea of a safe space is a recreational place in sound filled with soft and comforting melodies, angelic voices, harps, wide eyed innocence and general kindness - rather than the modern understanding of the term. I guess mostly I just added «safe» to Sun Ra’s afrofuturist sci-fi flick and thought it looked kinda clever. Its basically Windswept Daydream / Birds of a Feather part three.

-Come to think of it warm and lovingly crafted melodies sometimes work like magic in horror movies, or as the score to your worst nightmares… but scratch that thought and just revel in tenderness -Moahaha
