Dream Weapons present: EPISODES OF INSECT LIFE C90 - an NTS radio special.


A collaboration for NTS radio containing nine songs from Sadhu Sadhu (who also compiled this mix), Prabha Devi and Moahaha each. Its really Dream Weapons Present: Dream Weapons Present - but I kept the strangely apt title of the L.M Budgen-book I reworked for our cover art instead. «He filled their listening ears with wondrous things» is its subtitle - and what we aim for.

Dream Weapons present: ONE LAST DANCE C90



Here / Here 

or



You are cordially invited to a feast for ears and feet alike - atleast compared to most of my other mixes.

Don’t know if US voters went for the warmonger or fascist-alternative just yet, but either way wintertime is most certainly here. I just learned that the first statement of the 2nd law of thermodynamics is that "heat flows spontaneously from a hot to a cold body". Unintentionally erotic-sounding laws of thermodynamics sort of sums up my primary intentions with this mix - cuz that’s what the world needs. Now get ready for one last dance around the globe.

Dream Weapons recommends: ETHERIC FOUNTAIN CHANNEL



My dear friend Tsaheylu Silene Bathyketes, has released a new album! Check it out!

- Sadhu Sadhu

NEW TAPE from ETHERIC FOUNTAIN CHANNEL on SUNROAD RECORDS(Norway) c90 limited to 100ex

A mix of newage music, loops, noises and fieldrecordings/naturesounds. The self-titeled tape from etheric fountain channel stretches over 90 minutes and has floating transitions between the songs,blurring the compositions as parts to its whole,adding a overall feeling or color despite its wide range of expressions. its a fairytale journey through undiscovered landscapes. From digging through ditches as a hedgehog to witnessing futuristic monoliths being erected from an eagle's eye. It takes you walking by a lake in thick fog, hearing portals opening and closing through the echoing waves. The music is almost entirely made of acoustic instruments and field recordings, except some keyboardnotes in there that stick out as kind of obvious. It's got dimensions of depth you don't discover in it's ocean of sound on the first listening, though it's manageable. If you work at sorting out its layers and textures -you can hope to reveal new forms of meditation and or worship. The tape is a inspired incarnated image of the dancing elementals on the threshold of our senses. A pure communication in the form of musical memory.

Dream Weapons present: THE HEARING FOREST AND THE SEEING FIELD C90



or


Traditional-to psychedelic folk-favorites of a gentle, mysterious beauty long lost. Twenty songs and a few instrumental interludes all recorded sometime in between the mid-60’s up to early 80’s, that may lull you into a longing for olden times - centuries before you were born.

Times that… must have been total shit if you weren’t royalty or filthy rich. And anyone that lucky were most likely some sort of tyrant. BUT let’s not dwell on short and miserable lives once lived.

I'm afraid I seem to have strayed somewhat from my original brief. But in a nutshell: art is more fun than reality. Enjoy!

10. Spirogyra - Where There’s A Will, There’s A Way
11. Pererin - Titrwm Tetrwm

12. Jed - Winter’s Glade
13. Joseph Pusey - The Chambermaiden’s Dream
14. Lars Klevstrand - Det Er Den Største Dårlighet
15. Kathy & Carol - A Swallow Song
16. Arleta - Mes S’Afti Ti Varka
17. Shide & Acorn - Legend
18. Nordvision - Mooir Mini Kvi Kvi

21. Mayfly - Lemoncake
22. Folk och Rackare - När Som Jag Var På Mitt Artonde År
23. Jeff Moore and Friends - Flying So High

- This mix has taken its title from the Hieronymus Bosch-drawing (detail) used on the cover. Look closely and you’ll notice that the forest literally has ears, and the field eyes. - Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: SPIRITS UNKNOWN C90


Mainly spiritual jazz - including some spirited latin and oriental fusions. Or just some jazz gems I enjoy. I also dug up eight of my favorite jazz poetry tunes (all with musical accompany) and placed them in between. I like how these spoken grooves about biblical texts, New York City, STD’s, life memories, prostitution, apocalyptic visions and the blues influences and comments its musical surroundings. This mix probably seem less random than it is because of it. And in a good way, I think. - Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: COLD TRANCE C90


"Cold Trance is a mix of ethereal electronica intertwined with barren, soundscapes meant to act as a projection for the coming winter. It should be played on headphones whilst walking through an endless tunnel, or as background music to a minimalist painting. There is no beginning or end, just what occurs in low, cold rumbles"

Dream Weapons present: GHOSTIN THROUGH NEITHERLANDS C90



or



Not sure this title sits well with any native speaker of english but it makes sense to me. A ghost story of the sort that might have given you a good scare as a child, but maybe not so much if revisited as a grown up. It won't give you nightmares anymore but the dense, haunting atmosphere is still present. Childhood memories both from experience and fiction when magic and the supernatural felt just as real as reality – you know a little like that Stranger Things-series.

Dream Weapons present: SOUNDSTORMS C90



or



Although you can't tell by listening to my mixtapes shared here so far, I've always loved heavy, hypnotic riffs and pounding percussion - but it seems every kraut-or spacerock obscurity of the golden era is already dug up, ressurected and compiled to death. Which is why it was more inspirational to present some fuzzed & far out cosmic rock from the last couple of decades instead. A lot more fun for you and me both. Sixteen more or less contemporary bands mostly (but not all) sounding much like they're some long lost and overlooked 70's discovery - but why hold that against them as long as the ideas and tunes are groovy and fresh?

-Moahaha

Dream Weapons present: DISTANT DRUMS C90



or


I originally shared an almost identical version of this last summer, but guessing its new to most visitors here.

Distant Drums is my attempt at compiling an exotica or rather just an exotic-sounding mix - or maybe a few tunes here simply remind me of the sun and the ocean. Anyway I decided not to allow myself to include any of the usual suspects - and leaving out any favorites discovered on Flash Straps (highly recommended blog!) many rips and mixes. I almost succeeded on both accounts. I've loved the sound of this criminally underrated genre ever since I got Martin Denny's A Taste of Honey for free at a flea market a little over 20 years ago (hardly exotica and far from being among his best, but it did the trick). So here's a light, gentle and deliciously inauthentic 90-minute tour around everywhere in the world westerners consider east or south.

Dream Weapons present: DEAD BUT DREAMING C90



or




Its only occasionally as gloomy as the title and cover suggests. I just like the sound and looks of it.

-Picture yourself floating in some sort of limbo whilst semi-consciously drifting in and out of dreams. Some of them pleasant and beautiful while others eerie and dark but every time you you're about to grasp what its all about, the scenery changes. Perhaps forces of good and evil are fighting for your soul to keep. I don't know I've never been dead – and I don't have a soul. Far out! - but almost gentle enough to qualify as a relaxation tape.

Do yourself a favour and listen all the way through or else you'll miss out on Mal Waldron's stunning farewell.
