An Infinite mixtape of my favourite Godspeed You! Black Emperor songs. They’re known to take their time between releases (10 years passed between the release of ‘Yanqui U.X.O.’ from 2002 and ‘Allelujah! Don’t Bend! Ascend!’ in 2012) so it can take some time to update. Relax, it’s a labor of love. It just takes time and it’s fine. I like to be lost in any of the bands records, but sometimes I just want to get 2 hours + of the best GYBE. Just close my eyes and script a long movie, or a series of shorts, mostly while attempting to come to terms with something huge, sometimes bigger than me.
This is the perfect retrospective for me, being GYBE one of the most important bands in my life. I can’t imagine the person I am without this band in my life for more than 25 years. I used to say, I could never properly understand or be understood by someone who never listened to GYBE… This is golden, vintage nectar to my ears and soul, delivered with astounding craftsmanship and honesty, around thoughtful instrumental pieces, spoken word monologues, field recordings, tape loops and other experimentations that defined an era and paved the way forward to a “sound” many came to love.

The tracks selected here will be found in several of my mixes and playlists in themes of experimental to avant rock, and usually tagged as inspirational and introspective.
