These four tracks were slated for digital release by the well-known Thisco label, but appear here instead due to hosting issues. The theme for these songs is travel-- each one could signify a journey of sorts, by car, train, or imagination.
This is an edit of the second track from the forthcoming album on DataObscura by The Circular Ruins and Mystified. The album is entitled "Fantastic Journey". Background sounds are by Mystified, foreground, composition and mastering by The Circular Ruins. Learn more here: http://www.dataobscura.com/ .
Mystified's "Moonshine" brings to mind a classified ad from the back pages of a pulp magazine: "Seeking couple for whirlwind tour of famous southern murder sites. Share expenses." His riff on Southern Americana evokes swamps, alligators, midnight voodoo ritual, liquor running with fast cars and more. Good for the mythic night journey on that long stretch of highway. Drink deeply but with caution, you never know what lies on the road ahead.
