Marika Papagika "The Further the Flame, the Worse It Burns Me" (Mississippi Records, 2010)

It's a beautiful day in Baltimore so I'm going to try to keep this brief. I'm not so much trying to rep Mississippi here as I am this record's compiler, Ian Nagoski, who used to live in Baltimore and now lives in Western Maryland, where I assume it's every bit as nice. It's not hard to see that this label was based on an old label and so I've included that label (courtesy of Leo Sarkisian via Ian) below. If you haven't heard this record yet you ought to. Music of sublime beauty by someone whom love failed utterly. Happy Valentine's Day!
