Haunted Days – The Ballroom Tape | Et Musique Pour Tous
I'm suspended in mid air, outside of the human conception of time. Past, present, and future are all mixed together, no longer separate entities but enigmatic experiences simultaneously occurring. Life as a child, life as an adult, and life as an aging man float in circles like a ballroom dance. I'm not sure what to make of it, but I do know Haunted Days' new album is the soundtrack and is a fitting, multi-sensory experience that is so lucid and visceral that you can almost reach out and touch it. The plucking percussion feels like moving the hands of a clock with your hand, the keys feel like playing with a toy keyboard unaware of the impending jaws of death decades upon decades away, the vocal samples feel like the circulation of all your past conversations mixed into purple haze much like the stunning album artwork. It's an introspective body of work that will send you to the depths of consciousness and the height of the cosmos all at once. Melodrama has a negative connotation
