Words cannot describe...,

...how stunning this album is.
If you love laid back beats then I cannot recommend this enough to you. I'm having trouble with comparasons here, but if you like Lemonjelly, Irresistable Force, Müm, Nightmares on Wax, Lucky Pierre... Well if you like music of the chilled, and uplifting variety then you'll love this. Every now and again you pick up an album that makes you redefine what's good about music. And this has turned out to be one of them.
"Words to that effect", "Count your blessings" and "Air to sky" are all songs that you instantly fall in love with. You know the type - you hear 5 seconds and you know you've found a classic that you will have to listen to till the end of days. And "Quite Spectacular" makes you grin from ear to ear - like nothing can be bad when that's playing, the world seems like a good place to be, at least for 5 minutes. There are a couple of more up tempo tunes with stronger beats (like just a tad- no block rocking beats here), and a bit more funk - but simplistic loops and horizontal beats will make this album a classic. Picture summer, a warm evening and you're just doing nothing but smiling and appreciating life. It's a beautiful daydream of an album.
Even if you don't fall in love with it, it is the perfect Sunday album... as long as it's a peaceful Sunday.
