Grief, Anguish, Personal Conflict

I'm leaving all of you with a few of my most emotionally appealing records of late. While the lyrical content may or may not be personally relevant, the beauty and melancholy in these few pieces of music certainly is.

First are two somewhat sad but passionate records by the psychedelic influenced post-punk act "Sad Lovers and Giants"(whose whole catalog I recommend).

Download: Sad Lovers and Giants-Your Skin and Mine

Download: Sad Lovers and Giants-Things We Never Did

The next is a piece by goth/dreampop all-star act "This Mortal Coil". A good number of people recorded under the name but this is essentially a Cocteau Twins record. All be it a cover of an earlier Modern English record, who happens to be one of my favorite post punk acts of all time.
