Civilisation (Original Mix)
Tamara's antepenultimate outing is enshrined in AD 01 for a reason: Civilisation accurately exemplifies the mix of darkness & sadness that songs need to be seraphic. #20 in AD 01 is not a bad place for this black opal: her Beatport page wasn't lying about the syncretism. Dinka's teasing the tune throughout the trail of fears culminates in a midnight hailstorm that dissipates in an afterplay. All of civilisation led up to this. Dinka is pluralia tantum, & so is algedonics.
Zero Altitude (Original Mix)
Bringing us back to Mars, this oceanside pristineness crawls with horseshoe crabs, each as life-saving & confounding as ZA. Eighty Mile Beach is longer than Ninety Mile Beach? Confounding. As is ZA. The saltwater at your feet could be tears or seawater.
Zero Altitude suggests an earthly, quotidian non-effort. However, while it's 0 mamsl, it's 1 Mm/hr. This two-tracker spared no time, effort, or lives in the conquest, & management of, greatness.
