Fifty minutes of crackle and drift inspired by a recurring dream of sliver drones floating through empty streets searching for perps. A dusty Roy Orbison ballad plays from an old radio in an alley but the machines can’t find it. The title of this mixtape comes from something I saw spray-painted among the American ruins of Two Guns, a ghost town along old Route 66. These songs are dedicated to places like that.
Whenever I get into the car around sunset, I want to keep pushing west into the Mojave desert. All that strange spiritual space dotted with cheap motor lodges that advertise color television. Starts off with The Counts, Dale Hawkins, and Wanda Jackson.
Two pitched-down dub records meander through a field of mid-century blues and ballads. Featuring Françoise Hardy, Pole, Dean Martin, and A Rocket in Dub.
Aimed squarely at the midnight hour, this installment is best enjoyed on a porch or fire escape. Starring Vangelis, Al Green, Black Sabbath, The Cranes, and lots of reverb.
