Transmission 1.21 – Xmas

T1.21 Xmas

It’s that time of year, so here’s a Christmas special – Space Library style. Apart from the odd version of traditional songs, most of these pieces of music have little to do with the event at hand. It is, however, music that sounds to me like it should, or could. Small touches of magic and paganism dot the proceedings, Kahimi Karie covers a lovely Virgina Astley song, there’s some lounge moments, early electronics, modern hauntology, and delicate sounds from Kate Bush, Pizzicato Five and the High Llamas.
