Composer Jon Fredette is a sound artist who married to some of the finest weird poetry ever written. The works of luminaries Edgar Allen Poe, Jorge Luis Borges and H. P. Lovecraft make appearances here.
My first introduction to the world of Paul Bowles, as well as the Sub Rosa record label, was through this disc. The combination of stories read by Bowles himself, as well as the artwork and ambiance by storyteller Mohammed M’Rabet, made it wonderful bedtime listening, allowing me to transport my mind to what a hazy, stoned Tangier must have been like in the 1950s and 60s. This aged very nicely.
There was no way I’d miss an opportunity to share a timely piece by The Man In Black.
Tumblr is a place full of surprises (yes, and porn, and lame SJWs and freaks, and so on…). This is a happier experience. Wes Parham, recording under the name warmphase, reads some rather good poetry. If you have a Soundcloud account, consider subscribing to this.
