This is from Unknown Rooms, a very beautiful collection by Chelsea Wolfe. It’s a little unusual for this series in that it’s hardly a song all, just a floating, ethereal musical moment three minutes and nine seconds long. But you won’t regret listening to it.

The cover of Hiss Spun, her latest as of this writing.

I’m at risk of misrepresenting Ms Wolfe here; this may be floaty acoustic loveliness, but she’s mostly a hard-edged electro-goth drone doomster. If you go to a show (which I recommend), expect a lot of dim lights and guitar roor. Having said that, the roaring dimness will have tons of musical integrity, just as the glowing light of Spinning Centers does.

Only dream of me, only dream of me she sings, and I have.

This is part of the Song of the Day series (background).

Links · Spotify playlist. This tune on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify. In the world of video there’s a thing called “Glassroom Sessions”, which are recorded in a very beautiful glass room in something called the Sargent House. Here’s the Glassroom Spinning Centers played by a four-piece acoustic, two guitars and two violins. Lovely stuff.

Oh, wait. Did I say something about gothic guitar roar up above? I should make it clear that Ms Wolfe doesn’t just hire axemen, she makes her own, and did some of that, with exceptionally beautiful tone, in the Sargent House, along with the dreamy acoustic stuff. I think this one is also a commercial for a guitar-tech company, but whatever, it’s really great.
