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 // 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 // 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...

LIGHTNIN’ HOPKINS // BRING ME MY SHOTGUN

“Yea, it's the kind of song that follows you around the rest of your life when you got yourself in enough trouble.” Abalisong lie open on the table. I can't remember where I got it, but I feel like it's been with me a real long time. Everybody got something l...

STRIBORG // RUBUS FRUTICOSUS ENTANGLEMENT

"As their descent brought them lower into the depths, the static of their mind increased and it became like music to me." What happens when the extraordinary turns mundane? It doesn’t seem like there’d be anything left after that to give one the mental thrill...
Anna Gordon

ANNA GORDON // BURY ME HIGH

"That brilliant red glow it emits, and the beautiful ringing sound as it vibrates itself back into the molecules from which it came." Amongst all alien customs on the Surface, perhaps the strangest is the common practice of burying the dead. I’ve often wonder...
BURDON FOLK BAND

BURDON FOLK BAND // KOLYADA LAST

"It’s raw, emotive, and refreshing to hear something that pushes the clock back to a point where there is little historical record of music." Good… very good… my morning has been made. The pleasantry of music has never failed me, and this find is of particula...
