Monday's Long Song

Richard Norris' ambient album Abstractions Volume 1 has been on heavy rotation round Bagging Area Towers since it came out in February. It is a stunner, four beautiful and completely absorbing meditations, what Richard tags 'deep listening'- nothing much happens but it doesn't matter, nothing happens really nicely . It draws you in, fixes you and as I said somewhere else recently works really well as a kind of aural Valium. And God knows we all need some of that from time to time, in these chaotic and depressing days especially so.

The vinyl edition has four tracks- the download comes with Confluence 2 as an additional one, a twenty minute journey to nowhere/here.

I am also loving this album. I bought the cd version due to ongoing issues with storage and the offending of Lynn's eye with the overspill of vinyl

'...aural Valium...' I like it. Works for me.

Vinyl overspill and storage is an issue which needs to addressed round here too.
