Radio Va Va 03: Broken Heart Therapy

***  PLEASE NOTE, SOUNDCLOUD REMOVED THIS EPISODE, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO HEAR IT YOU CAN REQUEST A COPY HERE:  CONTACT ***

 

The air is blue, thick with disdain, pain and of overwhelming loss. You’ve got a bad liver in alcoholic fervour trying to numb the broken heartache. A whirlwind of emotion you turn to the only reliable source and hint of healing you know, your record collection and its countless cries of loves lost and cold analysis. You’re not the only one it reminds you, art is born of such sentiments.

A La Fu and Brent Handlebear take us through a personal trip, working their way through the blackness, blackness everywhere where little light shines, the blackness drags you down, let this compilation light the candle in that poor little heart of yours.

I hope it’s better when we meet again.
