Sonic Cathedrals Vol. CVI Curated by LYCIA Track List

1. Ralph Stanley – O Death
This track is haunting. My family is from West Virginia and I grew up listening to bluegrass music. This man’s voice embodies real emotion in music.

2. Black Mare – Blind One
I just recently discovered Sera Timms’ work and have listened to this obsessively since.

3. Joy Division – 24 hours
Influencing everything.

4. White Lies – E.S.T.
I found this band on Pandora about six months ago and fell in love. Now I listen to them daily.

5. Sailors with Wax Wings – There came a drooping maid with violets
I love this song and this album. Reminds me of dreams.

6. Trance to the Sun – The Nun V.V.
Lycia toured with this band in 1995 and I have been a huge fan ever since. To this day I sing this song as I’m going about my day.

7. Godflesh – Like Rats
Fucking genius. Makes me want to bite things.

8. Willie Nelson – Angel flying too close to the ground
Beautifully sad. Reminds me of childhood.

9. Killing Joke – Requiem
They’re Killing Joke. Big early influence on Lycia. Nothing else needs to be said.

10. Psychedelic Furs – Sister Europe
Another early Lycia influence. The first two albums.

11. Swans – Blood Promise
I could put every single Swans song on this list. I added this one because it’s the one that struck me today.

12. Clan of Xymox – Back Door
Another influence on Lycia. The whole Medusa album is brilliant.

13. Dead Can Dance – A Passage in Time
This band speaks for itself.

14. Fever Ray – If I had a heart
Awesome song. And because I am obsessed with Vikings.

15. Die Antwoord – I fink u freeky
I just like this song. Fuck you.

16. Bauhaus – Stigmata Martyr
Because it’s Bauhaus

17. Al Bowlly – Midnight, and the stars, and you
The Shining is my favorite movie. This song never leaves my brain.
