My mix is a change of pace for those who might be sleepless right now, be it insomnia or sleep paralysis, as the quarantine and current news cycle might be exacerbating the aforementioned for some. Best listened to after midnight.

American Nightmare – Life Support

Twenty years ago a hardcore band American Nightmare was formed in Boston. It changed the direction of hardcore into one that was more reflective, more musical, and more meditative and created a signature that was entirely its own. This was largely due to Wes Eisold’s, the band’s front man, fascination with post-punk, especially with the bands like Joy Division and the Smiths, whose lead singers were also genuine poets, as is Eisold.
