I haven't listened to any music for over a week. Can't do it.

However my three year old daughter listens to the Frozen 2 soundtrack over and over again. Those songs will for ever bring the good times flooding back. And they would be brilliant with her singing along if things were normal.
Ugh gonna cry again.

Sufjan Stevens - The Seer's Tower

In the tower above the earth,
There is a view that reaches far
Where we see the universe,
I see the fire, I see the end

I made this Spotify playlist today with all my favourite transportive (mostly ambient) music, including a lot of early Oneohtrix Point Never stuff as well as some Brian Eno, Aphex Twin, Burial, Mogwai, etc.

The playlist is mainly for my own pleasure as this is the music which helps me the most with my anxiety (I always listen to OPN's "Rifts" compilation on flights) and so I feel like if this whole thing gets too much for me and I want to shut my eyes and be somewhere else for a little while, I can put this thing on shuffle. Maybe you might enjoy it as well.

That sounds terrific!

I'd recommend Lyra Pramuk's new album for something that's often quite otherworldly sounding. It only came out a few days ago but I've been playing it lots over the weekend.

The Rolling Stones ~ Ventilator Blues

When your spine is cracking and your hands, they shake
Heart is bursting and your butt's gonna break
Woman's cussing, you can hear her scream
Feel like murder in the first degree

Ain't nobody slowing down no way
Everybody's stepping on their accelerator
Don't matter where you are
Everybody's gonna need a ventilator

Yesterday Toyah posted an ad for a gig on June 20th.  Firstly I admire her optimism, then I saw the support act was CHINA CRISIS.  I lol'd.

Good thing no-one's angry about the current state of affairs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VTr1_Qejn0

Though the obvious choice would be Breathe by The Cure/The Deadbeats/The Cinematic Orchestra/Pink Floyd/Depeche Mode/Dohl Foundation/Mary Fahl/The Prodigy/Ron Geesin & Roger Waters/Sir Henry/Vitamin String Quartet/Alexi Murdoch/Abney Park/Phish/Stardeath and The White Dwarves (and those are just the ones on this hard drive).

Whereas this is always the best track to play, regardless of pandemics: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQ2P4DKQ5ZI

my lockdown plan for the next few weeks involves recording mixes of my 7" singles, all pretty random with well known tunes alongside the odd stuff
and then broadcast them on Friday nights. I have already started mixing and can tell you that the first one will feature Nick Nicely, Banana Splits and Chas & Dave, amongst other hits.

Time to dig up the old Sounds Of The Apocalypse podcast, which has an appropriate mix for every kind of global catastrophe.

I had to really hunt around to find this again as even though the site is still up, it no longer appears in google search results for some reason.

Here's episode 8, "The Infected" - http://www.archive.org/download/JustinSmithSoundsOfTheApocalypse82007317TheInfected_0/SOTA008.mp3
