some tunes to gradually lift you from the depths — 1: Cocteau Twins, Touch upon Touch

A mini-mix. A week, and especially a day, dark beyond words. So scrap the words.

The first one comes from the Cocteaus, the last song they released before breaking up in 1996. No doubt this would have landed on the follow-up LP to Milk & Kisses, but the recording sessions for said follow-up remain locked in the vaults, ever so sadly for those of us who long to hear anything and everything this band ever set down.
