The Deep Woods

The Deep Woods was the sixth in the Soundtracks series, although I hadn’t actually intended to create a CD to accompany A Time of Torment.  The spur came from Mark Kozelek, who set a chapter from the preceding novel, A Song of Shadows, to music, and I was so touched by his gesture that I wanted as many people as possible to hear the track.  Once I’d made the decision to put together another compilation, a number of songs seemed to fall into my lap, including a wonderful cover of The Cure’s “A Forest” by Northumbrian folk singers The Unthanks in collaboration with Phil Hartnoll of Orbital, and This Mortal Coil’s take on “I Come And Stand At Every Door”.  This is probably the most somber and reflective of the six discs, with a nicely sinister undertow which pleases me greatly.
