I really like this, the sounds are amazing and has a pleasant dark nature to it! Interested to hear more.

I like Vineland best. It's the only Pynchon book I find genuinely fun to read, rather than theoretically fun

The goal wasn't to mirror a specific story, but I like in general what Pynchon does with his narratives and the form, and how he uses them. The Crying of Lot 49 might be a good first book to read.

I intentionally don't enable downloads, due to re-uploads, taking entire sections, etc. That being said, if you like to have and listen to your stuff offline, and would add this to your personal collection, just PM me and we'll work something out :)

Thank you for the review! Now your song: intro sounds rather atmospheric. Now it is sounding like an odd drug trip. Now back to sounding atmospheric. I like the atmospheric parts best: sounds more relaxing and melodic, as opposed to the trippy middle that sounds more dizzy and disoriented. I liked it overall. :)
