"Subtext" by John Foxx & Harold Budd


When Translucence + Drift Music came out, in 2003, I had to buy it as a UK 2xCD import.  It was probably the last "import" I ever bought.  What a foreign concept that has become.

Also, nobody owned this record back then. 

And yet, in 2018, the streamers carry it for all to hear.

As of this writing, "Subtext" has over 25 million streams.  Yay!  That's a victory for this kind of music.
