|Music To Enter The Spirit World|
Dedicated to the strange, mysterious, and ethereal pieces of recorded sound that have mystified me and lulled me to very different and alien places.
|1||Dead Can Dance|
Within the Realm of a Dying Sun
Gaelic folk, middle-eastern mantras, gregarian chants, African polyrhyhtms, meditation trances... kind of like a forced trip.
Script of the Bridge
Dream-pop and post-punk; a match made in heaven.
Her voice is enough to take you to another plane of existence, but the accompanying music is strange, lulling, and dreamy.
All the Pretty Little Horses
Creepy metaphysical folk from some guy who likes to sing creepy Slave lullabies, and then hire Nick Cave to sing them too.
|5||Have A Nice Life|
We all know this album.
|6||Steve Von Till|
A Grave is a Grim Horse
Grimmer than the cvltest black metal band, manlier than the most gruffly bearded lumberjack, this is some hard folk for hard people.
Kinda like the Cocteau Twins, though less mysterious.
Soundtracks for the Blind
In a list dedicated to the gorgeous, strange, and ethereal, I can't think of a better example.
Post-rock was once interesting.
|10||Godspeed You! Black Emperor|
Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas...
