This is cool. Today, Dawn Golden and Rosy Cross mastermind Dexter Tortoriello sent over the first in a haunting series he’s calling, “Against the Storm.” As Tortoriello explains it:

“I've been interested by the radio for quite a long time. Not so much as a means to distribute music, but more as a form of communication. Specifically early 1920's 'Golden Age of Radio' broadcasting, where you could tune in and hear a mix of music, stories, news, etcetera. I've always found a certain loneliness in the drifting signals; someone broadcasting into your home or car from a distant location, sharing things with complete strangers in hopes of someone listening.

Against the Storm is just this. An attempt to materialize a world that I've created in my subconscious and share it with whoever is listening. Each episode will be a collection of music, sounds, and voices all telling a part of a bigger story, taking place somewhere you've never seen, in a time you never lived. For now, the episodes will be posted online and archived, but I hope soon to build a small shortwave setup and broadcast live onto open air.”
