When I let my mind wander the desert landscapes of my surroundings in the Southwestern US where I live, I think of petrified forests, the painted desert, mirages, ghost towns, elusive and imaginary oases and the malevalent ghosts that haunt the supernatural and fantastical fiction of Ambrose Bierce and Robert E. Howard in their weird tales of the Southwest. It is the eternal sadness of these unquiet spirits that Scott Lawlor evokes and invokes throughout the course of the tenth installment of his Drone Excursion project, entitled "Into the Mystical Desert." While listening to this longform piece, I can slowly feel myself sliding into an alternate dimention where the real and the unreal merge into one, and the minor key drone can lull one into feeling that it may not be a bad idea to quietly lie down and surrender. There is exquisite beauty in this sadness, and it can hypnotize, even with the hint of the unearthly wails of those who are doomed to wander forever.

Scott Lawlor has done it again, and has created a magical landscape through his music. Darken your surroundings, close your eyes, and lean back and let this one envelop you either in headphones, or while centered in front of a good pair of speakers. Your patience will be more than rewarded.
