Thin Place Mixtape

I recently made a mixtape for Concrete Island, as a kind of celebration of the moods connected to the Chanctonbury Rings album. It has been brought to my attention that it’s difficult (impossible?) to see some of the artists mentioned because many of the tracks are mixes of poetry/prose/speech and other artists’ music.

I’m a bit torn, because I like that mystery and anonymity, but I hate not giving credit. So if you WANT to know what *everything* is, I’m listing it below.

0:00 Ulver ‘Not Saved’ (includes extracts from Caroline Bergvall ’48 Dante Variations’)
