Video du Jour
Welcome to one of the freshest female future quirk pop artists to have hit the new millenium.
Release of the Day
On a palm fringed island in warm turquoise waters, there is a Music From Memory tiki bar with The Zenmenn as it's house band playing New Age pop, blue eyed soul, exotic easy listening & barely upright smooth grooves for love drunk honeymooners & Hawaiian shirt clad locals. It's a magical place.

Latest Label Release
Forthcoming (April 15th) on The Slow Music Movement. A vivid snapshot of where folk music has been, where it's at and where it could be heading.
A few thoughts on a few things:
Women in Ambient Music
After asking for suggestions for women ambient music producers in a Facebook group, I decide to write a blog post listing all the (65+) recommendations proferred, and a few thoughts on why ambient music is such a mail dominated space.
It's a new age of New Age
A brief essay on the history of New Age music from its 60's counter cultural roots to the mood playlists of today. I also have a pop at modern living, neo-liberalism & throw in an overly simplistic solution for good measure.
Drifting, Almost Falling Interview
This is the first in a series of interviews with other music reviewers, bloggers and online magazines that I follow with interest, in an effort to help spread awareness of the poor, unpaid/underpaid, overworked music obsessives shining light into the shadows of the music margins and who provide an essential alternative to the mainstream, largely big indie and major label obsessed media. Please say hello to Drifting, Almost Falling and his horizontal blog of delights.
What is Slow Music?
Who are we to say? But here are a few suggestions anyway.
