The Collapsable Universe

the 1970’s were electric. synthesizers had crept into daily life, titillating eardrums with sounds from the future. in this environment, jammed full of new technologies, jazz mutated into elaborate soundscapes with layers and textures and grooves.

Warning To The Cold

seems there have always been hard times. even though most of these songs were recorded over 40 years ago a lot of the sentiment rings as true today as it did then. as i’m sure it did 4 decades before that , and will 4 decades from now unless we give more power to the people.
