Phantom Circuit #25: We choose to go to the Moon

In this week’s Phantom Circuit, we choose to go to the Moon, but not to do the other things. We can be pretty single-minded.

It won’t have escaped your notice that it’s the 40th anniversary of a human stepping onto the surface of the Moon. We celebrate with a collection of music ranging from the rhythmic to the ambient, the experimental to the pop, the scientific to the magickal, the traditional to the futuristic.

Music by Severed Heads, Brian Eno, Bel Canto, Tserendawah, Michael Hoenig, Axxess, The Lotus Pedals, Henry Cow, Slapp Happy, Kitaro, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma, Louis & Bebe Barront, Louise Huebner and Echo & the Bunnymen.
