Rewind: The Mercury Program
I was a sophomore in college when I first heard this record. It was the opening drone of the lead track, Tequesta...full of reverberating vibraphones, drifting synth, and a smart little drum beat, eventually joined by a chilling Rhodes Piano. I bought the album on the spot and have carried it with me since, but forgotten about it mostly until now. Mistake #1.
A Data Learn the Language is fitting background for a few important things: Chilling, Reading, Showering, and Making Sweet Love. Its mellow, jazzy post-rock that will blend your brain into a tasty smoothie. Have a friend bring a straw.
Riyl: Minus the Bear, Lymbyc Systym, Mogwai, Aloha.
