As we know, Chronos, the personification of time, created Chaos and Aether. How apt. If you have also been wondering why your brain won’t stop the jibber-jabber of activity at night these days, then you’re not alone. Time is alive.
We start this episode with Nina Simone asking where the time goes, and work our way through the crackly wistful folk boo hoos of the likes of Duncan Browne, Kath Bloom and Loren MazzaCane all the way to some cathartic ticky-tacking Swiss and Italian musical projects fiddling with insistent rhythm (which is how my brain feels as it desperately tries to connect with the crippling lethargy of my body, like a cranky and exhausted child being dragged by its determinedly busy mother, my brain). This all leads to Selma Hayek being thrashed by the surf, and Jesus Christ getting an earful from Judas as Mary Magdalene attempts to soothe his cracked feet.
Happy quelling of the subconscious, everybody! I’m tired.
Under my voice is “Celestial Ash” by Anna Homler.
