It was with a weary mind that this song eased into my subconscious, slowly expanding to become one of the most beautiful pieces I have heard in a while.
And I can confirm that each song is as beautiful as the last.
While it could be filed under the genre my friends call ‘standing on a Scandinavian/Scottish beach, depressed,’ it is equally effective at untangling mind-knots and gently lulling one to sleep.
It’s gorgeous. Do listen:
It’s worth noting as an aside that this was heard on BBC Radio Scotland.
My love affair with the station began in 2002 when I lived in Aberdeen during my Masters.
Over the years I have found the music played to be uniquely gorgeous day or night; folk, world and singer-songwriter works feature heavily – perfect backdrops to the drudgery of study.
Although an (un)fortunate outcome on moving back north could be the explosion of my music collection.
My bank thanks you.
