Here in New England, we’re buried in snow. This has me thinking wistfully of warm, wide-open spaces and Southwestern landscapes. In that spirit, here is a track from Middle Distance, the album Mystics Anonymous released as part of an art installation featuring said landscapes. Paradigm Shift is a noir-ish desert theme, and marks the point in the album, which has been slowly building from minimalist noise, to chord and melody-driven music. The idea was that the music would mirror the rise of civilization, from “Horizon” to “Future Secret Societies.” So in the middle of the album, we reach the “Paradigm Shift.” You can stream and download it for free here. Hope you enjoy!
