This week’s assortment brought you by some really dark thoughts peppered by the realization (again) that perhaps only love and real compassion will pull us through as a species. The recent U.S. elections also float around in this muck, but far wiser folks than me are stumbling to find the right words to describe a time when reason, facts and reasonableness have fallen to their knees. So, I dedicate this mix tape to the various messes we’re in and to the idea that we’ll one day extricate ourselves from the worst of them.
Proof We Listen: A number of folks have commented about the lengthy mixes we’ve been putting up lately, and in the interest of our time-starved readers, we’re trimming Poundings down to a manageable baker’s dozen most weeks to come.
If you experience playback problems, pop over to the 8tracks mix page and it should play fine.
