Decibelcast Vol.15 “Distance”


When we are separated from those we love the distance no matter how great, no matter if physical or emotional in nature, can feel like a multi-verse. Sometimes that distance can melt away in a phone call or a smile or words on a page and other times it’s a persistent strangle hold in the core of our being. Wherever you are in the world there’s more than likely someone across an ocean, state lines or merely a wall away that you’d like to feel closer to, this mix reflects that emotion. A natural extension from our last Decibelcast “Wandering” comes Decibelcast Vol.15 “Distance”
