Customer Reviews

I can't wait for the next one!!!

What an amazing record! If you have read my other reviews, I have compared this album to 'Christopher Bissonnette', 'Lusine lcl', and 'Cheekbone'...I feel this is accurate, maybe not so much in composition, but more in 'genre' and 'approach'. This is the type of record I would take with me to a beach at night and just lay there and watch the moon waver on the water. I can only help You so far, as I am not into listening to Rock music...I am very burned out on the whole 'Hip' rock scene, and looking at anyone in a band makes me want to throw up. With that said, If you like what you hear in the 30 second clips, You will be satisfied with your purchase on this one! NOW, I MUST FIGHT MY IMPATIANCE WHILE I PRAY FOR THE NEXT RELEASE BY THIS WONDERFUL ARTIST!!!!!

An Amazing Work

If you need to unwind from time to time, this album is for you. It fills a room beautifully. It's not boring like a lot of ambient music -- it provides just enough mood to make anything you happen to be doing more pleasant. Highly recommended. Oh -- and it's a great album to wake up to too.

Good for driving, studying, relaxing in general

The best song is Inside of the Pocket, but they all are pretty great. They each sound a little like their titles, so, if you have a chance to chill with headphones, think about the image while you hear the song...pretty good way to completely relax, IMO. Great album.

Since the release of his well-received debut album Minima Moralia (Kranky) in 2006, he has been remarkably prolific as both a solo artist and collaborator, and...
