Black Flame by Pythias Braswell

A two-minute ambient noise piece is something unexpected from a guy who I regard as one of the most poetic creatures ever to sing whilst strumming an acoustic guitar in person in my immediate presence. The other wonderful discovery connected with this post is the Freeday Alliance website, the online home of Pythias Braswell and another creative Cedar Falls-via-Olympia character, artist Boguslaw (née Jeff) Moravec, once the musical mastermind behind The Spectacle Of Klumpffnhauser & Louison’s Amusements & Oddities. They have CDs and books for sale and I’m seriously considering ordering one of each of everything. These guys are the shit. Check out Pythias’s songs page for more sounds.
