Quiet Time



Another week another cross section of tunes for you. Keeping it fairly chill towards the end of the year, and kicking off with another archival installment. So it turns out there's a bonus track from FlyLo's Until The Quiet Comes that I wasn't even aware of, I managed to get my mitts on it after some difficulty so I thought I'd file it away on here once again, along with the hi-res version of the album art above. Yet again the Japanese bonus track is a very solid addition to the tracklist, it comes out feeling like a hip hop infused version of the Casino Versus Japan tune I posted last week. I'm totally in love with the sound of it, behind the lo-fi beats there's plenty of smoothness to get stuck into.

Had a nightmare run of bad luck earlier this week that left me wandering a train platform for about an hour. Gave me some time to think about tunes I was gonna talk about though, and this was going to be #1 before I managed to get a hold of that FLyLo. Give it time to get past the slightly dramatic sounding intro and you get some some Japanese trip hop styled thing circa '98. Not only does it perfectly describe the weather for November here across the pond, but it's pretty perfect musical accompaniment to being stranded on a train platform, just slow down for a little while.

And with that in mind, thought I'd revisit Röyksopp's track of the month series again. Stronghold was the last one to come out, it was slightly delayed so was released in January, it totally first the winter aesthetic to a T as you might expect from Röyksopp. Pair it with Sparks from Melody A.M. if you're in need of some warming audio in these colder months.
