You Want it Bleak?

…Do You?

“Days of Joy Unending” the new album from Zeke Mason is here. It’s 14 tracks of pure joy and happiness for your edification. May it lift your spirits so they soar like birds in the heavens.

This follows on the heels of the short EP “A Short Soft Deep Breath” but there is no overlap (a couple of the songs on ASSDB are actually quite old, while DOJU is all shiny and new).

As always, download it here for free.

Hugs and kisses and all the rest!

New Album: Daylight, & Other Myths for Children

“The new ZM album was really an exercise in expressing the sort of ambivalence and and detachment that I feel towards/about my creative work and creative work in general at the moment – hence, music that is very abstract (no words, no engaged themes, just sound). The idea was to make music that was just a total abstraction, just sounds, rhythms, melodies, etc. where one cannot make a connection to any sort of higher meaning whatsoever.”
