It has been a long time coming, Mystic Moods, but as we say in The Netherlands, we didn't skate over one night's (thin) ice, we simply granted it the time it deserved.
And so here we are, proudly presenting a collection of Mystic Moods from Israel, Russia, USA, England, Germany and The Netherlands.
The title, like Numerology, again seemingly refers to the New Age domain, but what a fine corps of musical shamans has cooked up in their sound laboratories is not the sort of thing your therapist would try to lull you with during a Reiki session.
The hallmark of WM Recordings is 'different', and so it's Mystic Moods with a wink, a lighthearted take on the mystic deriving it's campy cues from the Mystic Moods Orchestra, rituals and therapy, art and science fiction, the metascientific questions scientists are being forced to ask regarding origins and existence, and the rise of fanatisism in the world of faith, in short: it's music for your undisputed pleasure...!
Finally, I'd like to express a big "thank you!" to all artists who so generously contributed. A special thanks goes out to Martijn for his precious studio time, to Trudy for her priceless artwork, and to Marco for making it all possible.
