Since the start of the year, episodes of Up In The Clouds—our freeform show on Brooklyn-based internet station Newtown Radio—have been steadily, while somewhat stealthily, populating this archive.

Last night, Mister Lies and Foxes in Fiction (also shoutout Brian Vu and Cuddle Formation) came by the studio for what can be considered an Orchid Tapes takeover. Nick provided a guest mix compiling some of the music that inspired his album Shadow (out October 28th). Warren, who arrived from the airport just in time to plug in for the second hour, performed a set of “deeper, weirder cuts” as well as a new song finished earlier that day.

It’s unclear exactly which dimension is allowing the other to escalate in this prism-ed ‘gray area’, but the interaction is unquestionably enchanted. Urban fantasia looks good on a late night (rapid eye) movement like “Safety Net”. The video’s director, AF-regular Left Arm Single, adds:

“I am fascinated by how two sequences of images put together can dance, bring together and pull apart your thoughts, kneading. The rhythms in the song impress in me a feeling of being somehow submerged, in a muffled, elusive world. There is no sense of direction and all you can do is roll with it.

Rolling down a hill, dirt in your mouth and hair and grass stains on your clothes. You come to as you look up at the sky. It is only afterwards that you discover the joy of remembering. Safety Net tells me a story of turning inwards, of falling off a cliff only to find oneself weightless.”

Mass, a collaborative EP between Chicago friends Mister Lies and Different Sleep, is out now via Absent Fever.
