elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Current 93 with Thomas Ligotti - In a Foreign Town, in a Foreign Land

Year of Release: 1997
Label: Durtro
Genre: Soundtrack

In a foreign town, in a foreign land by Thomas Ligotti is a collection of four short stories in the fantastical horror vein of Lovecraft: "His shadow shall rise to a higher house", "The bells will sound forever", "A soft voice whispers nothing", and "When you hear the singing, you will know it is time". The book is dedicated to Stephen Stapleton of the British surrealist/cut-up band Nurse With Wound, and is accompanied by a CD of music by David Tibet of Current 93, which is the suggested appropriate aural ambience for reading the stories. For your listening pleasure, I present this wonderfully dark soundtrack by Current 93.

Sweet, thanks!
However... The files have no tag info. Thankfully you guys have all the info right there on the page, but still... Just thought I'd let you know.

thanks for pointing that out! I am dealing with a recently crashed (and poorly backed up) computer and everythings a bit difficult at the moment.

I wasn't even aware this existed until I came to your blog. Thank you very much. C93 stuff is difficult to come by. I hope you were able to save your data after the crash.
