Locomotion

Comments Off on Mix Tape: Locomotion

Musicians who don’t actually ride trains write songs about them. Locomotives run through the tunnels and mountain passes of the collective unconscious, steaming away through history, dreams and folklore, carrying us through wild places and mazes of steel and concrete, delivering us with halting, rattling energy to stations on our route.

If you experience playback problems, pop over to the 8tracks mix page and it should play fine.
