For a couple of years I’ve wanted to do a podcast built around Buried at Sea’s nearly 30 minute track “Ghost”. Even though I highly recommend experiencing it as a whole, I’ve always heard it as three separate movements that are connected as a single track. This gave me the idea to split it into three pieces and expand on them to create a podcast.

I’ve made a few attempts at doing this since coming up with the idea, but could never find the right mix of tracks to compliment “Ghost”. Until a couple of weeks ago when I heard the Cough/Windhand split Reflection of the Negative. Specifically the Cough track “Athame”. It was exactly the inspiration I was looking for and within a couple days the beast you see before you fell into place.

I have lots of other ideas or themes for future podcasts that I’ve been mulling over for a while now. Some of them will see the light of day, while others won’t. But that’s okay, I know the ones that are meant to be will happen when the timing is right or I hear something that starts the ball rolling. This is exactly why there is no rhyme or reason when it comes to how often you will see a new podcast on this website. They will appear when they are meant to be and not a second sooner. For now, I hope you enjoy this one and keep it away from small children. It will crush their fingers.

      Thanks! That comment instantly made the time I spent on this podcast worthwhile. I wasn’t kidding about it crushing fingers of small children though. Some pretty heavy shit, isn’t it?
