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.

Cover of Hiss Spun by Chelsea Wolfe

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).

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.
