♫♪  Listening Mirror - “Mixtli Sleeps” (featuring Birds of Passage)

Yo, shut the fuck up! This “Mixtli Sleeps” joint is gorgeous. It’s like an angel farting in your ears during work. Or when fruit molds to dust. Imagine people gowned in silk stopping short in clear water. Forget all that slow motion and watch flowers bloom in real time. Hear the lake shore-side sounds of Tequesquitengo. Feel the vibrations of cicadas singing in sequence. Ooze to the brooding noise of everything else erupting ya ear wax. Pump this jam loud, because it’s 5:30 somewhere, and traffic sucks (obviously crank that bass). Just, the density of this drone drives deep dishing out a dry abundance atmosphere.

Yes, I know, this is a “Watch” post, but the video can only serve six-plus minutes of the song, and your digital shit can repeat this forever. Once Alicia Merz’s (Birds of Passage) voice emerges, you don’t want to give it up. So, continue and continue and continue. I’m sure Jeff Stonehouse (Listening Mirror) wouldn’t have a problem with that either. But buried at Bathetic Records you’ll find Listening Mirror’s new cassette The Heart of the Sky. Also, soon to be released on Bathetic is a Listening Mirror/Motion Sickness of Time Travel split, so bookmark the label website below on ya work computer. Your bossy-boss don’t care.
