Here are some words from Ben about his selections:
Here is a collection of music which has been accompanying me through isolation these last few weeks- There is little connective tissue here, other than it being a mix of some of my absolute favourites (Emmylou Harris, Alice Coltrane, Mark Hollis), some are pieces by friends I miss and who are too far away right now, others I find curious and fascinating, and some I’d never heard before. It is an ocean of music and here is no sequence here, hit shuffle and let the machines do the work. I hope you find something in here you’ve never heard before. If anything resonates with you please consider ordering some records from your favourite local record store.
Stay safe and look after one another. BF
