Insect Politics - We Must Love Each Other or We Must Die 001

A very long mix, in short: Beautiful noise, propaganda, protest, wax cylinders, folk ballads, downbeat ambient things, all kinds of pianos, probably more kinds of strings. Mostly instrumental, but sometimes people sing.

Quiet things to dream to, strange noises to jolt you awake, occasional stumbles into metal, sneaky country cameos, exactly one banger. At one point you’re in Drumnadrochit with a cheering crowd for some reason, and sometimes people shout things to blow up the world to. If you make it all the way to the end, you’ll find John Prine and Iris DeMent duetting there, and what a lovely place to that is to wind up, no?
