We have 2 sons, and early next week we’re expecting our first daughter to be born. During the last week I’ve had a few profound moments of being overwhelmed by sudden rushes of emotion as I think about this new member of our family. Things like washing tiny pink clothes, cleaning the house and making space for a tiny bed have brought me to a halt as waves of feeling wash over me. I haven’t experienced anything quite like this before, and as I sat listening to Underworld yesterday I felt it might be appropriate to try and encapsulate some of that emotion into music for you all.
This mix is not dedicated to my daughter. It’s not for her perse, rather, it is something of an attempt to capture the myriad of emotions I’ve been processing this week. That makes it suitable for me… and anyone who’s interested in my emotional (and perhaps my metaphysical) composition.
I’ve titled it Aurora Borealis, and I dug deep into some old records for this one. The track list might include hints to the name of our daughter… or then again it might not. Enjoy.
