ALEXANDER NOICE // MASATOSHI SATO

"My ears tell me this song is a polyphonic, ever fluctuating, beast built of notes—but my head tells me, 'This is quite soothing.'" I should explain. It’s been a long while since the station has fallen silent, and I won’t sugarcoat things for you as to why...

MACULA DOG // JUNGLE SWINGERS

"There is not a firm footstep throughout the track; each step is a kind of spastic foot flung forward landing on warm, muddy earth that forces itself up between your toes." Oh! The weekend I have had! I woke up, after my long trek to the 100 Mile Wilderness, ...
Squinch Owl

SQUINCH OWL // A MATTER OF FAITH

"A noble and good cause, a gentle and handsome memory—but between them I found no space for the present." What a long, long—very long, hike it was. From Walden-Parke Preserve to the 100 Mile Wilderness is little more than a stroll as it lies in the map. I sup...
Agalloch

AGALLOCH // FOLIORUM VIRIDIUM

"They may wish for misfortune on others, an attempt to have negative phenomena come into and impact their lives." The anticipation of the positive and the enjoyment of present time have perpetually been foreign concepts for me. When in densely populated areas...

LISA/LIZA // CENTURY WOODS

"This place feels outside of time, in a very different way that the Deep Down. I suppose that’s why 'Century Woods' speaks so loudly here" Thank you, Thaddeus, for taking charge of the station as I’ve taken this short trip to the Surface. Every so often the u...

MESARTHIM // ….-

“I sail through the infinite black void. Inescapable and never-telling.” Mouser Slade and I are members of the only marginalized group in the Great Below. It is no great coincidence that Slade is seemingly always on the run between realms and I, invaluable re...
Tal National

TAL NATIONAL // KANNI

"'Kanni' by Tal National breathed new life into me just as I was about to cut off that day as a total loss." A break in the normal routine is always welcome, whether it or not it becomes cluttered with minor inconveniences. I won’t get into those details, but...
Pyramids

PYRAMIDS // THIS IS ONE FOR EVERYONE

"Frenetically, tiny bursts of energy surged through my arms and legs, in a kind of syncopated rhythm—mechanical but more complex a timing than I could keep track of myself." This morning I woke from a dream—but not fully. I found myself in that most awful sta...

WOLVSERPENT // IN MIRRORS OF WATER

“Bereft of the serenity that carried you this far, drums become louder from across the soundscape until dreadful shrieks bolt towards you from the mist. ” Can I call myself subterranean? It seems a ludicrous question from someone born and raised ('raised' bei...
Ada

ADA // NEW HOME

"...but rather than the trunks of trees climbing to awesome heights it was stalacto-stalagmites scattered about a large cavern." I’ve had “New Home” by Ada on repeat for a bulk of the day here in the office. After such a long time spent in the Warren, a “new ...
