Cooper Bowman 'Agrestic Aether' Mix For Sanpo Disco.




This is a combination of the two dominant kinds of music I’m really interested in these days: minimal ambient and downer country. On face value, you would assume they wouldn’t work together or compliment each other, but I think there is a shared melancholy and contemplation in both strands. The transcendental, other-worldliness of aetheric ambience and the firmly ground-rooted lyricism of country desperadoes meeting somewhere in the middle. I’ve included some relatively well-known country artists, like Townes Van Zandt and Gene Clark, but dug out lesser-known live recordings of them. The Townes track is culled from a live set he performed in 1990 in Brunswick (yeah, Sydney Road Brunswick). I’d been considering the mix on some recent solo hikes around kunanyi / Mt. Wellington, where the image was taken. The mountain and surrounding area has a storybook-like quality, but the terrain becomes harsh the deeper you become immersed and there are still reminders of its historical past littered throughout.
