about

********
incandescent ritualistic folk glee
sunny splashes of electronic light
hushed acoustic tremors of murmuring darkness
soft gentle strands of grassy lullaby
loud cathartic yelps of animal madness

keyboards warble in and out of the ears
grand pianos twinkle and disappear
acoustic and electric guitars strum and pick
flutes twitter and laugh
synths sparkle and shine
kitties yell
harps shimmer
accordions bellow
violins wail
hands clap
drums pound
bells ring

snatches of Eastern European freak folk
snippets of synth-pop joy
pulses of wide-eyed psychedelic rock
a garden of earthly delights
