Call it getting older, but lounge music just keeps sounding better and better. Between the pools of experimental music quicksand swirled throughout the internet and the commercialized pop of FM radio which pours from the speakers at work, it’s nice to hear something minimal and calm every now and again. Soft drums tap with the swing of actual drum sticks in calloused but smooth-moving human hands. The drops are more like trips, making you nod your head rather than shake your hips. Melody lines make their way through your head, but they don’t get stuck there like ticks in your hair after a bit of greenway.
The loops on "Circles" set the mood rather than demand your attention. The beats flutter like the opposite of “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.” Conscientious objector hip hop. Listen to it on a tape player that switches sides for you automatically and kick back as you comfortably lose your place in it.
