Nighttime 6

"We tiptoe through tenuous times", is about as perfect an opener for the Nighttime Six chilled compilation as I can concoct. As mentioned in the liner notes (sometimes I think I am living in a 33.3 world), this one was designed to balance the stress and chaos of our everyday world, in the hopes of finding musical relief from a place where crazed shoppers trample Wal-Mart greeters to buy big screens, where people get shot at Toys R Us, where pirates take pot shots at luxury liners, where extremists commandeer hotels with grenades and fear and auto CEOs lobby congress for bailouts and perhaps most sadly, where a religious holiday is now being asked to save a transparent economy.

This mix is to chill, however briefly, from the insanity that surrounds us.

Please enjoy.
