There, in the distance, approaching over the rock and grass of Minnesota, rolling out of nowhere, there came a glittering sea.

This was a busy week in the home office – no travel, and so much focused work, which meant that I had time to listen to a lot of great music while I stared at the laptop screen. And with the release of excellent new songs from Listing Ships and Wiltz, along with my recent discovery of the wonderful music of 3epkano (no idea how I missed hearing about them before now), a really nice 6forty playlist took shape. This is part 1 of a series that I’ll be releasing over the next few weeks, leading up to the 50th 6forty project collection! The new EP from MinionTV should be arriving any day now, so I can guarantee that part 2 (640.049) will come soon after. The songs on this playlist were selected also as the soundtrack to my latest reading – Clive Barker’s Abarat. He just released book 3 in the series, so I’m reading through #1 and #2 again so I’m fresh on the story and ready for the magic of #3 Absolute Midnight. This is a really great collection of music. Play it often and enjoy.
