Bright Lights

Bright Lights!

Like AM Radio Dust, its companion volume, Bright Lights is just as much an exploration of lost spaces and places as it is of sound.

I hope you enjoy it.

    Great mix as usual. If it’s not too much trouble & you have the time would you put it into a zip file like you did with AM Radio Dust? Thanks.
    Always look forward to your postings.
    Thanks again.

    Hmmm… J. Gale? Wonder where that came from? ;)

    Hope you guys enjoyed the snow… drove through 6 inches of it going through the pass south of Ft. Stockton on the way to the Bend week before last and saw remnants in the highlands south of Alpine a few days later when I was hauling a buddy up to the emergency room in Alpine. Bet the Marfa plateau looked gorgeous and the Davis Mountains as well.

      Snow was beautiful but I was flu-stricken at the time, the worst 24 hours of it unfortunately coinciding with the heaviest snowfall. Still, though, lovely.

  7. jonathan says:

    so damn good, any chance of having a .zip file with all the tunes separate like am?

  8. travis pitts says:

    i concur- mp3 files in a zip would be GREAT! have been an avid scrounger of lost twang and exotica for years, and my bookstore instrumental playlist always garners questions and respect from new listeners and oldsters who recognize a few tracks now and then. would love to have these loose so as to mix them in properly!

  9. D says:

    Great atmosphere.

    The best mix i’ve heard all year. Love it!

New at the Lonely Beat:

A bit "Lotus Land," a bit "Key Largo," Dizzy Gillespie's "Rumbola" is rarely-heard side, recorded in 1954, and a lovely example of dark jazz noir in an exotic Latin setting.
