Cloudscape: Sand Snowman - The Celestial Banquet Mix


A new instal­ment in our grow­ing series of guest mixes is The Celes­tial Ban­quet, put together by Sand Snow­man. He’s been one of our ‘res­id­ent artists’ on Even­ing of Light ever since we reviewed his first album Moth Dream, all the way back in our first month of exist­ence, Octo­ber 2006.

Since then, Sand has released a num­ber of albums, con­stantly refin­ing and improv­ing his style of dreamy psy­che­delic folk. His last two albums on Dutch label tone­float – Two Way Mir­ror and The World’s Not Worth It – were both mas­ter­pieces. We also did an inter­view with him a few years ago, which is recom­men­ded if you want to know more about the his­tory of the pro­ject and Sand’s paint­ings and inspir­a­tions.

This year, it’s been a bit quieter around this pro­ject, but this mix in which Sand shares some of his musical inspir­a­tions with us will hope­fully lighten the wait for his next album.
