Our dear sister Gypsy Witch has been isolated for months, and thereby avoided COVID. She had a visitor stop by, and bang, she’s sick in bed. Bleah! We can haz a sad. 🙁

As a result, I’ll be doing tonight’s Meander and tomorrow’s Around The Campfire, and I’ve put together a suitable set for two consecutive winter nights where someone might have a need for comfort… 

Yes, my friends, it’s time once again to turn in our hour of need (well, four hours actually, but whatevs) to that master of the musical moodscape, that sage of the soothing soundbath: none other than Michael Carss aka Altus. Tonight, we’ll hear two of his most famous and beloved albums in their entirety: Winter Embrace (the 15th Anniversary reissue) and Winter Embrace II. Tomorrow night, I plan to play Winter Embrace III, followed by a vanishingly rare recording of a live Altus performance from December 2007 entitled Toward the Winter Solstice.

Come join the conversation in our Discord, visit us in Second Life (dress warm, as I’m going to find an appropriate winter scene for tonight and tomorrow), or just listen in. We start at 6 PM PST / SLT. See you then!
